About this site

Angelyn WhitmeyerMy name is Angelyn Whitmeyer and I currently live in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  Plants fascinate me — I like discovering their names,  characteristics, uses and benefits.

I created Identify that Plant to teach you how to identify plants you find around you every day.

By learning the skill of correct plant identification, you can

  • know a plant’s name
  • become the “plant identification expert” with your friends
  • feel safe around plants in your bioregion
  • specialize in identifying and working with medicinal plants
  • correctly identify wild edible plants
