Q. How do I find particular plants on the NYBG grounds?
Thank you for your question. To find a particular plant on the NYBG grounds, say for instance a tree such as a Pagoda Dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) in our collection, go on the nybg page and put "Garden Navigator" in the search box. Then in the link choose "Find A Plant". There may be one or more plants listed and each shown on the garden navigator map. To get started, see the attachment for the Garden Navigator map here for the dogwood tree: http://navigator.nybg.org/weboi/oecgi2.exe/INET_ECM_FindPl?PLANTNAME=Pagoda+Dogwoods+&FINDPLANT=Go&gardenloc=
