Other plant reference sites

  • Dictionary of Common Names of Great Plains Plants: What one site calls Field Sagewort, another calls Tall Wormwood. This site can help clear the confusion on common names if you have a plant's scientific name. Regrettably, the University of Nebraska took this down, but the pages are still available on the Wayback Machine.
  • Plants for a Future: information on edible plants and medicinal uses, among other things.
  • The historic Junior F. Hayden Botanical Photograph Collection at the University of Minnesota archives.
