The University of Illinois has created this fine database for use by students, avid gardeners, and just about anyone with an interest in woody plants. The database contains copious amounts of information about woody plants found in the northern portion of eastern North America, and visitors are welcome to select plants from the database by their scientific name or by their common name. After making these selections, visitors can look over a number of illustrative photographs and also learn about each plant's habitat, size, color, hardiness, and texture. From abies cilicica to the zelkova serrata (or "Japanese zelkova"), this online database is a most welcome find. Additionally, visitors can send along some feedback on the site via a webform.
