In general, we are looking for images that:
We've gathered a few good and bad examples which will help us to explain the photographs we are looking for:
|Although one flower is blurred, the other one is not|
|Multiple flowers are okay, as long as they are all from the wanted species|
|The same flower species can have different colors|
|Normally, we don't want cropped flowers. But there is one in this image that is not corpped|
|Although each flower is small, they form a unit that is distinctive|
|This is a drawing not a photo|
|The photograph clearly contains two different flower species|
|Each individual flower instance is too small|
|Flower too large and cropped|
|Contains an insect that occludes the flower|
|Photograph has been artificially modified|
|It is unclear which object is in focus|

Our main focus is UK native flowering plants but we are also interested in those that are naturalized. Here is a complete list of UK native flowering plants. Please enter the scientific name (last column on list, for example, Digitalis purpurea for the common name foxglove), for the flower of which you have photographs to upload. If you only have a common name (for example, rose) please use Google or Wikipedia to translate it into a best guess scientific name. The identification of submitted images will be checked and authenticated at Oxford.
Please only upload photographs from one species at a time.
