Search This Site for a plant name

There's two ways to go about it. The first is to use the advanced features of web browser like Google; quite easy and powerful. The second is to use your web brower's built-in search function.

Using Advanced Google:

  1. Go to the Google website with this link :
  2. To the right of the grey entry window, click on "Advanced Search"
  3. Towards the bottom of the first blue and white box there is a heading "Domain". Set this to read Only return results from the site or domain . This tells Google to look only in my site, rather than the whole web.
  4. Then enter the name you are looking for in the light blue "Find Results" box and click on the "Google Search" button.
  5. You can also use this feature to look only for Rock Garden Plants, or with flowers of a certain colour, etc


Using your Web Browser:

Your own browser's Search or Find function will probably come in handy if you are looking for certain things. Important hint: the browser's Find function looks only in the last window section you clicked in, so when you click on the Index bar to change pages you have to click your mouse somewhere in the main part of the window (where the changing information is) to make the Find function look in there.

Each plant listing includes all the Common Names that I have come across for that plant, so you can use your browser to find a plant by common name. To make that easier I have added a page of Just Names which lists all the common and botanical names found in the alphabetical listing so you don't have to go through all the pages individually (it now has links to the photos too). It'll open in a new window so you can move easily back and forth to the plant listings.
