To aid users of mobile devices as well as those with a mouse or laptop finger pad this site uses a simple image-based menu system. Virtually every picture you see (images and photos) are links to more information arranged in a sort of top-down structure. See an image, click or tap on it to open a new page.

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

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.
