Marion County Flora Database

Are you interested in seeing what grows in Marion County? Visit our Marion County Flora Inventory under "Projects" to view photos, species information, and locations where plants were found. Our database contains records for approximately 1,000 species, nearly 80% of which are Indiana native plants.  The photos and information are a compilation of what we have documented on our inventories around Marion County and the Butler University campus, thus may not represent everything that could be growing in Marion County, Indiana. Historical records from the Friesner Herbarium of Butler University and other authors, are available in PDF format at:

We are continuing to add photos to the database so check back often for updates. If you would like to contribute a photo(s) for our database, please contact Marcia Moore at
