The National Plant Data Center (NPDC) acquires, develops, improves and disseminates plant information to support the USDA’s National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and other efforts to improve the ecological health of the land. The NPDC is responsible for a wonderful resource - their PLANTS database focuses on the vascular and nonvascular plants of the United States and its territories, including orchids. The database includes checklists, species abstracts, distribution maps, crop information, plant symbols, plant growth data, references and other plant information. Visit the PLANTS Database here.
