Zoom in to your point location of interest, then click SEARCH. You may specify low water, riparian, or shade.
You may limit your results to wild plants in the same county or within 10 miles and choose only plants that are easy to establish.

How does it work?
The Calflora Database contains soil, climate, and elevation factors derived from Calflora plant occurrence data across the state of California. Our planting guide algorithm uses these data to generate a list of native plants that suit your chosen location.
If you need help or have questions, you may read our help page or reply to this email.
Soil and Climate Factors

Also specify a watershed, protected area, CNPS Chapter, etc. under Layers.
