We are pleased to announce the launch of the new IWGS plant database. This is fully searchable, by plant or hybridizer, with advanced filters to help you find that next plant for your pond – or help identify a plant you may already have.
We have 3,000 plant names and over 1,000 photos of waterlily and lotus varieties already, but would love for you to help us make it even better, so please share your plant photos so we can share them to the world! There is a Photo Upload button on each plant page, you need to register first to use this, which is easy and can also be done through Facebook login.
Our next update, due this spring, will feature shallow water, submerged and floating plants, so we can be your number one source for ALL aquatic plants!
The IWGS would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the creators of the new database – IWGS Directors James Bennett of Bennetts Water Gardens (UK), and Sander Dekker (The Netherlands). Thank you James and Sander for making this tool that will benefit the entire community.
We are looking for missing cultivar photos or additional photos to add to each photo gallery. Any photos submitted will be reviewed by qualified people to ensure accuracy, after which the photos will be added to the database with your photo credit.
