Easy to use, packed with info!

A fantastic app containing a wealth of information, profusely illustrated with great photographs. Even better, it's easy to use! For beginners, plants are categorised into types/growth forms, then sorted by flower type/colour. Thumbnail photos help to quickly narrow down the possibilities, then each entry highlights the features that are unique to each species, making it easy to identify any mallee plant you come across. You can also search the app by family name or plant genus, for those with more botanical knowledge. There is no other resource for mallee plants so comprehensive and so convenient.

Super easy to ID plants

I used this app to help ID plants in Ngarkat conservation park recently. It has a great level of detail & the photos are a fantastic resource too, so I had no problems IDing any of the plants. I definitely recommend it!
