What is SF Plant Finder?

SF Plant Finder is a comprehensive and easy-to-use resource for gardeners, landscape designers, ecologists and community members interested in greening neighborhoods and enhancing our city’s biodiversity. Turning grey pavement into native and sustainable gardens and tree canopies supports our climate resilience by improving air quality, urban heat island, water conservation, and stormwater/flood management. SF Plant Finder recommends local native and other climate-appropriate plants for sidewalks, backyards, roofs, and open spaces that are adapted to San Francisco's unique environment, climate and habitats
