A Rescuer's Guide to Georgia Native Plants

Recognizing What You Find

The photos are changed each month to help with field identification as the plants look this month.
For August there are 655 photos, covering 341 plants.

PLEASE NOTE: Rescuing native plants entails obtaining the permission of the property owner to dig plants prior to the property being developed. I do not advocate the removal of native plants from their natural habitat under other circumstances. Please visit the Georgia Native Plant Society link if you would like more information about plant rescue.
