    lookin for a shrub key for the northwest (on in general..)

    Hi there,
    I'm having a hard time finding an online shrub ID key. I live in the Northwest. If anyone has seen any thing online, let me know!

    Thanks in advance,
    Katy

    Hi Katy,

    I don't know of one that just shows pictures of shrubs when you don't know the name, but maybe someone else will. Most that I know you will need to know the name, but give these a try.

    Also, Michael Dirr is considered the ultimate expert on woody plants. You might want to browse the library for some of his books.

    key links...

    Hey Newt,

    Looked through the links and none were really the one I was looking for, though, I did find another plant I was looking for in one of them! I do own the big Dirr book too, just tired of flipping through it!

    I was also interested to note that in the last link of Arkansas plants that Nandina is under "potentially invasive"... it's my favorite plant and am glad it doesn't go wild up here!!

    :)
