Welcome to the U.S. National Arboretum’s Arboretum Botanical Explorer, or as we like to call it, “ABE”*. Combining our plant records, GIS maps, and images, ABE is a powerful yet easy-to-use search and mapping tool for researchers, die-hard plant lovers, and novice gardeners alike. Detailed information about the Arboretum’s accessioned plants is available by clicking right on the map, using the simple plant name browser, or the advanced search. Use it to plan your visit to a particular must-see plant or dedicated bench, or just have a look around. Then, download our handy USNA mobile app to your iOS or Android mobile device to take special tours of our collections, see what’s in season, or navigate to specific plants and benches!
