The new wildflower app from the Burke and other partners works even in remote terrain.

The Herbarium at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, authors of Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest and High Country Apps have partnered to produce the new Washington Wildflowers identification app for iOS and Android mobile devices.

With images, species descriptions, range maps, bloom time and more, covering someĀ  850 species of common wildflowers, shrubs and vines, the app covers most of what will catch your eye in Washington and neighboring territory in B.C., Idaho and Oregon.

It’s also a great tool for learning more about plant communities and getting familiar with botanical terms and plant-identification techniques.

Native species are the focus, but introduced species common to the area are also included. The app, once downloaded, doesn’t need an internet connection to run, so it will be useful in the most remote locale.

Try this link for a free trial. Here’s more from the Burke.
