logo Calflora Illustrated Plant List 

Recently added to Calflora

To maintain Calflora as a leading knowledge source to the status and distribution of California native and naturalized plants, we are continually adding new plants to our database. As new plants are discovered in California or new invasives move into the state, we regularly add them to our resources. Meanwhile, plant taxonomy is continually changing as well, as research reveals new or different plant relationships, often necessitating a plant name change. Plant names change, and Calflora regularly updates plant names based on the Jepson eFlora's Index to California Plant Names and USDA Plants. Calflora "crosswalks," or translates between old and new names, so you will find the species you're looking for with a single search. These regular updates to the Calflora Database include species additions, name changes represented by synonyms, spelling changes, lumping, and splitting.
