University Plant Information Database Open to Public

The Plant Information Online project is one of the world's largest collections of information and images for botanical and horticultural and plant enthusiasts and scholars, available at https://plantinfo.umn.edu/arboretum/default.asp.
Java and Web Services recently improved the site to update the look and feel as well as functional improvements including improved searching of the database.

As reported in the Star Tribune the Plant Information site has been opened to the general public and features information on where to buy plants and seeds, links to more than 2,000 North American seed and nursery farms, and more than 300,000 citations to plants in science and garden magazines and books.
