Just last month a new application was released that can help you identify wild flowers while your hiking or just strolling in your backyard. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center located at the University of Texas (Austin) released a really cool addition to their website that allows easy access to the wildflower identification features on their website to anyone with a smartphone (web access) or an iPod Touch with a wifi connection.
All you have to do is surf on over to wildflower.org/moblie and your smartphone will allow you to search their juge database and find the answer to your wildflower questions.
“This is a perfect tool for today’s mobile, tech savvy generation,” said Wildflower Center senior botanist Damon Waitt, Ph.D. “People who want to access native plant information anyplace, anywhere, anytime–whether they have a question about how to do something in their garden, want to identify a plant or need other information.”
And don’t forget to follow them on twitter – wildflowerctr – they have some really great things going on with conservation and information.
