What is Calflora? Calflora is 1. a website you can use to learn about plants that grow wild in California (both native plants and weeds); and 2. a nonprofit organization responsible for the website. Calflora is run by two paid staff members and a few volunteers. Information in Calflora comes from many sources: public agencies, non-profits, scientists, private donors, and you!
