NC Native Plant Society:
Native Plants Gallery SAMPLER!

This sampler will refresh with randomly selected contents and one randomly selected photo of each plant shown from among the hundreds of plants and pictures in our gallery each time you enter here or refresh the page.

Clicking on the larger "common name" or the smaller "scientific name" just below that will take you to that plant's details page and more pictures of it!

Clicking on many of the pictures themselves will often surprise you with a wonderful pop-up view of the enlarged photo! Sometimes, clicking the photo a second time will present you with what is affectionately called "loupe view" - a super closeup you can scroll around in using your arrow keys! Click the "x" at the upper-right corner to close the pop-up window that opens for that feature.

Enjoy, and refresh the page often!
