It worked!

My mother found a flower in the back yard that showed up on its own. I work at an environmental firm in san diego and we were both curious as to what the flower could be. So I plugged in all the various things for color, number of petals, type of leaves and it worked!!! There were about 100 results to scroll thru but it was quick.

WHY is there no Chaparral choice for Habitat location???

This is California!!! Needs to add a chaparral habitat location. Chaparral is a very common habitat in Southern California coastal areas! Why is it missing from the app?!?
Other than that glaring omission, a good and useful app.
