Arranged in Habitat Groups

Alphabetical Index


Click on one of the habitats shown here, and view photos of some typical plants you might see as you travel around the state of Utah.

   Some are "weeds" and some are "wildflowers".
   Some are common and some are more unusual.
   Some are very beautiful -- and others are not.

I hope the photos will help you identify the plants you find, and make your travels more interesting and enjoyable.
