An app for identifying mystery plants
Ever come across a plant and been curious about what it was? Fortunately there's an app for that. PlantNet (iPhone, Android) lets you take a photo of a mystery plant, and then it compares it against thousands of photos in its database to identify probable matches. It's been accurate every time we've used it, correctly guessing identities of royal catchfly, chicory, bloody geranium, and Baldwin's ironweed.
