Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

QUESTION:

I just tried sending y'all some photos of a plant I'd like to identify. The email address failed. Please let me know how I can get these 3 photos sent.

We are sorry, we are no longer able to accept photographs, which is why the email address was not active. Please go to our Plant Identification Page for sources that will accept online photographs. Be sure and follow the instructions for doing so.
