Online source of basic plant information

Hi there,

I've been looking, so far in vain, for an online source of basic information on as wide as possible a range of flowering plant species in northern Europe. This is mainly required for plant identification and would only need to include information such as plant size, flower type, colour(s) and size, leaf characteristics, and unique identifying features compared to similar-looking plants.

Does such a source exist?

Many thanks,

Try here...

Botanical Society of the British Isles - BSBI online key: http://www.botanicalkeys.co.uk/flora/

I hadn't found it before - it came up when I googled: 'plant' 'identification' 'online' 'key'

I am now going to try it out!
