Plant Database

Michael Pascoe's plant database has grown out of 15 years of developing and teaching courses in plant identification at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. Over the next few years, Michael hopes to have representation from most plants that can be grown in Ontario gardens. This would include cultivated plants as well as weeds and perennials as well as annuals, perennials and all woody plants as well. Michael offers his opinion on plants as the database develops, and as he, himself grows and observes plants from his own garden. His website offers a candid experience and opinions. Visit
