The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation has developed an online search tool for the information in its “Native Plants for Conservation, Restoration, and Landscaping” brochures. By submitting a common or scientific name, the user accesses information on whether the plant is a Virginia native or not, along with the region(s) where the plant is found; its habitat preferences; and its value for wildlife, in horticulture, etc. A link to the online native plant finder is available at http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/natural_heritage/nativeplants.shtml, where you can also access PDF files of the brochures, which are organized by particular Virginia’s regions and habitats. For more information on these native plant information resources, contact Rene Hypes, Va. Department of Conservation and Recreation/Division of Natural Heritage, 217 Governor St., Richmond, VA 23219; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
