Sometimes Mother Nature gives gifts in the garden or yard, though we perhaps don't know what they are. That entails the tricky job of plant identification.
Fortunately, curious gardeners have Picturethis available to get help with finding the name of a plant.
All you have to do is open the app, take a quick picture of the foliage of the plant, or a close-up of the flower and the app does the rest.
In the last couple of weeks I have been able to identify the following plants; Asiatic Jasmine, Indian Hawthorn, Japanese Laurel, Shell Ginger, Sexton's Bride, Leopard Bride, Bower Plant and Blood Flower. All these plants are within 200m of my front door.
The application instantly identifies plants. It is accurate, fast and also has some plant care tips, which is great if we take a clipping so that we can grow at home.
