Flowering Plants

Flowering plants are those that reproduce sexually by producing flowers with both male and female parts. These include trees and grasses.

The 'top down' search now moves to family level. If you are not comfortable with families of flowers then why not try another way? You can search flowers by colour, by month, by habitat or by site. You can search trees by leaf, bark, twigs and more. Just click the pic to see the range of options.

Flowers: Major families

I have grouped the species of the major families (families with 4 or more recorded members) together as each family has common charateristics.

Flowers: Minor Families

I have grouped species that belong to smaller families (3 recorded species or less) together but subdivided them by common characteristics; for example, climbers, bushes, aquatic plants and others

Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs are flowering plants but I have put them as a separate grouping as they tend to be distinctive.

Grasses Sedges and Reeds

Grasses and rushes are also flowering plants but produce pannicles rather than the familar flower structure.
