Need to identify leaves and flowers? There's an app for that. | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

If you are like me, you are probably pretty good at the parlor game of identifying certain plants: the flowers your grandmother grew in her garden, the pine cones you spray painted gold in third grade, and forsythia (if blooming). Unfortunately this is not that helpful when you come across some new plant—growing on the side of the road, or over a fence, or at the edge of a trail—that you would like to have, if only you knew how to ask for it at the local nursery.

I will use as many as I can in my mini-hedge but these plants grow BIG and I’ve only room for two or three. Remaining three must go.
