Catalog of Living Plants

The Arboretum posts a catalog of all the living woody plants in the collection. This catalog lists all living plants alphabetically by genus and species with the locations of the plants on campus. Copies of the catalog are available for a fee from the Arboretum Office. Visitors may also use the Visitor QUICKfinder to help them search our collections. Alternatively, visitors may access a searchable online inventory.

Searchable Online Inventory: Click here for the map that corresponds with the grid location of the living plants (example: R13). Other location descriptions can be found here.

Plant records are maintained in the computerized database, BG-BASE™. All accessioned plants are labeled with aluminum tags containing their accession number and botanical name. Most plants, including some herbaceous and bulbous, have display labels containing botanical and common names.
