Best flower app for Washington State
This app is supported by the foremost experts in Washington flora, at the University of Washington Herbarium. You can’t put all flowering plants for Washington in one app (you could, but it’s would get messy for the those trying to parse out tough genera) so they’ve picked the ones you’ll most likely see. They certainly chose well. This information comes from the source of flora knowledge. Other free apps don’t have the same depth or content. The money goes to those who make plant taxonomy a lifestyle. I’ve been using it for a few years and it is indispensable.
Useful, easy to operate app
Love the High Country flower (and grass) apps. Bought the Flora of Yellowstone years ago and now grab any new ones for regions where I travel. So convenient to have everything available in one lightweight, easily carried spot. I live on the edge of the Palouse region of Washington and Idaho and use both apps when I’m out and about.
Elegant and efficient!
I bought this wonderful app late last week before heading over to south central Washington (Bickleton area), from Seattle on a nature day "runaway." We went in pursuit of bluebirds and spring wild flowers and wide open spaces and were delighted to find that this app helped us quickly zoom in and narrow down the number of possibilities for our searches, and then confirm our wild flower ID's, easily and quickly. The search design and Mark Turner's beautiful, illustrative imagery are first rate. I highly recommend this app for any considering a Northwest wildflower outing.
Combine it with the Peterson Birds of North America app on your iPhone and/or iPad, as well, and a pair of binoculars and you are set for a grand outdoor adventure.
Strong work, Mark and team.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
