Washington Wildflowers

Description

High Country Apps logo University of Washington Herbarium at the Burke Museum, the authors of WILDFLOWERS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, and High Country Apps have partnered to produce the new WASHINGTON WILDFLOWERS plant identification app for mobile devices. The app provides images, species descriptions, range maps, bloom period, and technical descriptions for 1,000 common wildflowers, shrubs, and vines found in Washington and adjacent areas of British Columbia, Idaho, and Oregon. The majority of species included are native, but introduced species common to the region are covered as well. The app does not need an Internet connection to run, so you can use it no matter how remote your wanderings take you.

Digital Garden Apps -- "Sure, my smartphone is a communication device. But it’s also my portable notebook, a map in the wilderness, a camera that makes me look like I know what I’m doing, and even a contemporary iteration of an old-school transistor radio that keeps me company while I work in the garden. But I never thought it would allow me to take my garden library along on every hike and road trip." read more...

User Reviews

"Elegant and efficient!" *****
"I bought this wonderful app late last week before heading over to south central Washington (Bickleton area), from Seattle on a nature day "runaway." We went in pursuit of bluebirds and spring wild flowers and wide open spaces and were delighted to find that this app helped us quickly zoom in and narrow down the number of possibilities for our searches, and then confirm our wild flower ID's, easily and quickly. The search design and Mark Turner's beautiful, illustrative imagery are first rate. I highly recommend this app for any considering a Northwest wildflower outing. Combine it with the Peterson Birds of North America app on your iPhone and/or iPad, as well, and a pair of binoculars and you are set for a grand outdoor adventure. Strong work, Mark and team."
