Find That Fuchsia
This astounding directory can point you to UK nurseries carrying thousands of different fuchsia cultivars. Amazingly complete. So complete, in fact, that I wonder how the information is gathered. Perhaps the nurseries themselves send the information.
Arboretum de Villardebelle
A very complete conifer site that includes taxonomic information and photos, as well as many useful links.

California Native Plant Society (CNPS)
This site has a useful list of sources of native plants, including contract seed collectors.
British Conifer Society
Koniferkid says: "There are a lot of amazing pictures on the British Conifer Society website. Some incredible cultivars which are now on my most wanted list."
American Fuchsia Society
Ginny in San Jose said: "The absolute best place to learn about fuchsias and obtain many for free, is to join your local fuchsia society. I did so a year ago and have probably 30 fuchsias, most of which I brought home from a meeting. They give them away!! You will also learn how to grow them from a variety of experts. You find there is more than one way to do it. I have throughly enjoyed the meetings I've attended and the people I've met. Gardeners, especially Fuchsia growers, are great people! Here is the link for the page that tells about the local chapters. I see there is one in San Francisco. The big fuchsia convention is also occuring this summer. See the main page for details. Have fun!!"
Gymnosperm DatabaseSomeday hopefully you can call me the "Gymnosperm Database"...
This site is a beautiful winner, put together by an amateur. Contains hundreds of lovely photos. Amazing! I wish my site came half as close.

An amazing story about a beautiful, nearly extinct tree. Apparently these trees will be offered to the public soon, and this site allows you to register your interest in getting a tree. Shoot is signed up!
PLANTS National Database
The best part of this database is its inclusion of germination info for many species not often grown be other, less tree-obsessed gardeners. Also wonderful for photos, links to the scientific literature, and links to other web sites. Indispensable.
