Contributing Photographers

Plants, especially flowering ones, are largely visual. Being able to clearly see what an interesting plant looks like is essential for decision making. “Do I like it?,” “Will it work with what I already have planted?,” “Will it fit in the available space?”

For websites like this, good photography matters.

At Leafari, that translates into lots of behind-the-lens hours; in our own gardens, in botanic gardens and parks, in growers’ fields and more. We take many of our own photos and rely on a network of contributing photographers to expand our library of botanical images.

Listed below are some of the photographers who have shared their images of plants found growing in the U.S. and beyond.

Thank you, Contributors. The addition of your photos is appreciated!
