Pflanzen allows you to identify more than 1500 garden, park, and forest plants using a simple identification key with traits such as flower structure, leaf shape, flower colour or fruit colour. Depending on the season or visibility of plant parts, additional identification traits are available to classify a plant.
Identified plants are shown with images as well as common and scientific names.
To access detailed information about a plant, you can directly switch from iPflanzen to iForest or iGarten if those applications are installed on your smartphone. iPflanzen also shows you an example of information that is available in iForest and iGarten. It is the connecting App between iGarten (garden plants) and iForest (trees and shrubs). All three applications together form an ideal instrument for identifying plants or selecting plants for your plantings as well as looking up species or practicing your plant knowledge.

Bare bones start
This method of identifying plants based on specific characters can work well.
Pros: Easy to get started, does not require much experience to narrow the list of possible plants with just a few choices.
Cons: Few plants included in the library, few helps or cues if you are unsure about the choices.
Biggest problem: this app is basically a tool to send you to the developers website for more information. It becomes, in effect, an advertising tool for their other app which costs $15.
Easy to use! effective
was struggling to identify an alien looking house plant I have. Other apps proved to be highly ineffective in doing so. After trying 3 other apps I came across this precious gem. It's easy, one narrows down results based on what your plant looks like, and ta-da: House not alien, but an actual plant Asclepias carnosa.
Might be Good if The Devs Weren't Greedy
Seems like an app with good potential, but in order to get full details on any plant in your search results, you have to buy an app that costs more than $21. No thanks!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
