The Missouri Botanical Garden plant finder is one of the best listings. Look up, view a photo and read about the over 6,800 plants which are growing or have been grown in the Kemper Center display gardens (plus selected additions) by scientific name, common name and/or selected plant characteristics.
Walter’s Gardens provides us with much of our perennial starter plants. Their site is easy to use and give a wealth of information about different material that they grow. “Where perennial lovers go for good dirt.”
PlantRight™ was founded in 2005 to address the ongoing sale of invasive garden plants in California in an environmentally sound and economically viable manner. Though more than half of California’s invasive plants were originally introduced through horticultural channels, no cohesive effort previously existed to work with the nursery industry to prevent the spread of invasive plants in the state.
A great site to find out information about different citrus varieties. Includes photos, descriptions, and much more. The Citrus Experiment Station and its Citrus Variety Collection were established in Riverside in the early 1900s to support the needs of the developing citrus industry in Southern California.
Help prevent the spread of citrus diseases. Moving citrus trees is the fastest way that citrus diseases are spread. When you move citrus trees, you risk losing America’s citrus altogether–think about life without fresh oranges, limes, grapefruit or even juice.
CCQC’s mission is to represent the California citrus industry in response to problems and issues which arise in state, national, or international arenas and which affect the industry generally in areas of quarantine matters, technical assistance, international compliance, or other related issues. Use of the word “related” is key to CCQC’s mission because it explains CCQC’s interest in preventing pest introductions, which would increase pesticide use and disrupt successful integrated pest management (IPM) activities. It also explains CCQC’s preemptive interest in international phytosanitary issues which could later restrict export opportunities. CCQC is pro-active and always maintains a science-based approach to the issues relating to the state’s citrus industry.
