Native Wildflower Seed Gallery

We believe that images of seeds are not only important to identifying plants, but are also an underavailable resource. While the flashy parts of plants are often readily available, the seeds, seed pods and other parts are often totally unavailable online. As such, we have begun a seed gallery. Here you will be able to see an alphabetical list of plants and what they look like as seeds. We hope you find this helpful!

If we have an image of a plant as a seed, we will post it. Each image below can be clicked for a much larger photo!

(COMPLETE) listed after a genus means that all US native species are shown for that genus, but note, this does not include tropical species, or those from Hawaii or US territories; only the continental US and Alaska.
