What are interactive plant labels?

Plants Map makes it easy and affordable to order custom, interactive plant tags or signs. They also have something you won’t find on other tags – a QR code that directly connects your plants to a smartphone. You can scan the code to edit notes and add photos to the plant page. Visitors to your garden can scan to read the story of your plant and see photos of it in all seasons.

Now anyone can add attractive, long-lasting plant identification to any landscape or plant collection.

To get started, sign up and add a few plants and then you can order custom tags that link to those plant pages. Learn more: What is Plants Map?

Testimonials

Plantsmap.com has allowed our school to create a user-friendly data base of the Lower School's significant trees and shrubs so that teachers are able to access and share with the younger students. The tags also help our families and visitors to access this information. We also provide links to the Plants Map site on our school's website. We look forward to expanding our database as we plant new trees, as well.

Brian Kane Director of Environmental Stewardship May 26, 2017

I wanted handsome, long lasting plant tags that could link me to more complete information on each of my 300+ trees AND geolocate each plant thru the use of QR codes and an online data bank. Plants Map fit the bill, and so did Bill Blevins, the owner. He and Tracy (wife & partner) was more than helpful in guiding me towards making it happen. If you're looking for plant tags that can do more than just offer the name of a plant, I'd highly recommend these fully functional tags.

I love having all the trees identified. We have a bit of property and have purchased a number of combination trees. It was impossible to keep track of what was what. Now, we can not only see all the different varieties but I can track their location on the Plants Map website. Everyone always wants to know where I got the great tags!!!

Elizabeth Grasso Homeowner May 24, 2017

Thanks fo much for all your help putting together my tag/stake order! Your tags are beautiful and add such a special, informative touch to our garden. Warm Regards, Pat

I had an opportunity to tour the Plants Map gardens owned by Plants Map founders Tracy and Bill Blevins in Spotsylvania County, Va. in June 2017. I was greatly impressed by both the gardens and the application of Plants Map technology. I saw how QR codes provide a wealth of information that can be utilized by garden owners and visitors alike. I used an Apple iPad Pro to scan the codes, and immediately a wealth of information popped up about each plant. There were seasonal pictures to show how each plant looked during different times of the year, and information about the plant's origins (when planted), seasonal care, etc. I can see how botanical gardens and homeowners alike can use the technology. Price seems reasonable, and maintenance looks easy.
