What are interactive plant labels?

Plants Map makes it easy and affordable to order custom, interactive plant tags or signs. Our signs have something you won’t find on other tags – a QR code or NFC chip that directly connects your plants to a smartphone. Touch the chip or scan the code to open the plant’s unique page on PlantsMap.com and then you can 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.

Testimonials

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.

We donated several plants to our local community center in honor or memory of club members whose contributions had been significant and we wished to recognize. We ordered plant signs from Plants Map and they were perfect. Just the right size, just the right information, just the right price. We will definitely be using this service again!

When I order (usually at the last minute for some event) they are immediately there electronically to help with always good input and spirit! I really appreciate how fast the "proof" is reviewed by staff and how changes if needed are quickly communicated. Plantsmap cares about our mission of public education in the herb garden. More visitors commented or were seen with phones looking at the herb signs this year at the herb garden during the annual Louisa Heritage Day in April. With the QR codes it makes it so easy to add and edit each entry. Every year we add to the signs identifying herbs, plants, and trees and we can see that the public uses and enjoys them.
