  Plant Identification Services

For more than a century, the K-State herbarium has served as a statewide resource for plant identifications.

Kansas residents wishing to know the identity of a plant may submit a sample (preferably with flowers and/or fruits attached) through their County Extension Agent, or contact the Herbarium directly if the county office cannot be reached. It is helpful to record notes regarding where the plant was growing, whether it was cultivated, etc. Herbarium staff will report the plantís identity and related information. If the plant is considered undesirable, the identification will be forwarded to a weed scientist for recommendations on control.

Dr. Mark H. Mayfield is the plant identification expert for the Herbarium.
