The Minnesota Wildflowers Info. app was developed to serve as an offline compliment to the renowned website:

The full version currently contains profiles for 1,710 plants with over 15,000 images covering:
•94 Aquatics
•76 Ferns & Fern Allies
•1099 Forbs
•126 Grasses
•24 Rushes
•202 Sedges
•152 Shrubs
•91 Trees

Each profile contains a detailed description with insight into how species are distinguished from similar species, a distribution map for Minnesota, a table of traits and general info, and images. A complete list of plants that are known to occur in MN is also included.

A layman friendly, multi-access key assists with the identification of plants. As traits are selected in the multi-access key, plants that do not have the trait are eliminated and traits that do not serve to narrow the results are grayed out. A glossary, that can be accessed through the multi-access key, describes and illustrates the traits used in the multi-access key.

As an additional feature to assist with plant identification, two plant profiles can be compared at once, side-by-side, by turning on the “Comparison View” setting within the app.

All questions and feedback - positive or otherwise - should be sent to:

Best wildflower app for Minnesota

The new app incorporates the best of their wonderful website. It has beautiful photos and accurate descriptions and information. As one who is just learning about plants, I have always relied on their website, but now it is good to have it all one touch away and not need web access, which is often lacking in the north woods. It loads quickly and is easy to use.

Wonderful resource for native plant lovers!

I love this site, including all the descriptions/pictures that help you identify both native plants as well as my “arch enemy” invasive species. Katy Chaya comments help with plant ID, and Peter Dziuk’s pictures are exceptional. My husband and I have 2 large native plantings (St Cloud home and Deer Lake cabin), and thus, resource is invaluable for us as we add new plants, and fight off crown vetch, buckthorn, canary reed, etc. keep up the excellent work!

Fast, amazing-best app ever

As an avid user of iNaturalist, I found myself going to the Minnesota wildflower website often. That information is amazingly all on this app, which works lightning fast. No more waiting for a page to load to get the awesome tips and tricks for a solid id. Bonus is the thorough discussions of sub species. Hats off to the creators of the website and app
