Help with Identifying Plants
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Sarah
Posted on: July 11, 2001

I recently visited Richters and picked up a few seeds and plants. Unfortunately, I lost one of the tags indicating what the plant was. Would you have any idea where I might find a pictoral listing so that I can match the plant to the name?

Even with the clearest and largest of photographs, it is difficult to identify plants by comparing plant features to photographs. The problem is that there are many herbs that closely resemble each other.

It would be better if you could send us a picture of your plant. Do you have access to a digital camera or a scanner? Otherwise, try photocopying a sillouette of the plant and individual leaves and faxing it to us at 905-640-6641.
