The Minnesota Wildflowers Info. app was developed to serve as a convenient offline complement to MinnesotaWildflowers.info, ensuring that you can access the information even in areas with limited or no internet connectivity.

The app has profiles for 1,814 plants with over 16,000 images covering:
•114 Aquatics
•76 Ferns & Fern Allies
•1134 Forbs
•154 Grasses
•24 Rushes
•207 Sedges
•169 Shrubs
•98 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 user-friendly, multi-access key assists with plant identification. 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.

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 can be sent to: app@minnesotawildflowers.info.

National maps please

This app is excellent for identifying midwestern plants (including trees!). It includes nearly all the information you might need: is it native? Invasive? Common names? And helpful hints for identification and comparison.
My only complaint is the app doesn’t show national distribution maps, which are on the website. Those of us in Minnesota-adjacent states (I’m in northern Michigan) would truly appreciate seeing those.

Thankful for this information

Like so many, I have been deeply moved by the inspirational call to action expressed in Douglas Tallamy’s books. This app and website have served as a treasure trove of information in my journey to learn about MN’s native plants for my own personal growth as well as for landscaping purposes. So much love and hard work has been invested in this tool. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!

Love this app

I use it all the time. Well organized. Can use it in the garden as well as in the field -away from WiFi or cell data. ONLY complaint is that it must be updated to make use of Dark Mode. The text is too pale to see on the info pages when my phone switches to dark mode. Please Fix! UPDATE: quick response from developer! Well done. I will see how it looks tonight when dark mode kicks on.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review! Feedback and requests are much appreciated. Dark mode support has been added!
