The Plant Encyclopedia is a new innovation that provides information and images of cultivated plants.

Created by Aden Earth of Toronto, The Plant Encyclopedia website is public-authored, using the same technology developed by Wikipedia. Anyone may provide information on any plant page. The activity is moderated by The Plant Encyclopedia community of authors.

The website has several other innovations such as hi-res images that allow zooming in to examine plants closely and aid in field plant identification.  

The Plant Encyclopedia can be used on a phone, iPad, or laptop and taken into the garden. Landscape professionals and companies find the portability of the system is useful to showcase plants to clients.
