Wildflowers of New Mexico – Flowering Plant Identification Guide for New Mexico. Website created by George Miller of the New Mexico Native Plant Society

Flora of the Western US – Reed Berkendorf, a MS students at Northwestern University and previous Conservation Land Management intern, has been working with people at NOAA to make these guides to the flora of the western US. They have found that people often skipped important steps in ID process (orders) and often got family wrong. Plus he went through all the floras, identified traits which are often important and either took photos OR made drawings to help get people to get them down to tribes. The link above will take you to a public Google Drive account where you can find all the information organized by species. This is also called the Western Plants Project.
