SMMPlants is a field guide to wildflowers and other plants of the Santa Monica Mountains and nearby areas of Southern California. If you've ever found yourself staring at an unknown flower and wishing you'd remembered to bring your field guide, this is the guide for you--how often do you forget to bring your iPod or iPhone in the car?
SMMPlants features over 400 color photos for 310 plant species. You can scroll through full-sized photos, or browse thumbnails for photos organized by photo type (flower, leaf, or fruit), flower color, family, and genus.
Descriptions for each plant include leaf and flower features for identification, latin and common names for the plant, blooming period, and plant communities in which the plant is found.
A Search menu lets you search for text, specify the type of plant type (such as tree, shrub, or herb) and plant community (such as Chaparral or Coastal sage scrub), and select the blooming period--including what's blooming right now.
Since amateur botany buffs and professionals alike can often make a good guess at the family of an unknown plant, you can also browse plant photos and descriptions by family. For quickly looking up a species, genus, or family by name, there's an alphabetic index with common and scientific names for all species and families.
SMMPlants includes built-in help and a glossary that is accessible from the main screen and from each plant description page.
Also see our app California Wildflowers, which covers 400 species throughout the state, with more species to be added in future updates.
