The Native Plant Trust is the nation’s first plant conservation organization and the only one solely focused on New England’s native plants. They maintain a database of native plants that is searchable by different criteria. Search for plants by name using “quick search” to get photos and cultivation information about the plant. Or, look for plants based on plant type, size, flower color, ecoregion, exposure, moisture, bloom season, and even cultivation status.
