Virginia is for flora.

The Flora of Virginia Project inspires conservation of Virginia’s native flora through education, outreach, and production of the Flora of Virginia in electronic and print formats. This resource is critical to protecting the rich biodiversity in the Commonwealth, and requires ongoing commitment to keep the data up-to-date and accurate for the benefit of professionals, educators and enthusiasts alike.
