There are 75,000+ plant species and cultivars in the UK and it’ll
be a long time before we make plant records for them all!
So, for each group of plants, or ‘genus’ we have a genus record that
you can list any plants not found against, adding the second part of your
plant’s name yourself.
We think you’ll see it works just fine. But do check there’s
not an existing plant record first, as it will confuse others if you make
a listing against the genus when there is already a full plant record
for the same plant.
The plants you list here will then be a priority for us in creating plant records;
and we’ll transfer your listing to the record once it has been made.
Note: It is always best to list against existing plant records if you can,
as your listing is then linked to the other details we hold on the plant.
