Durango Plants is operated by Eric & Lisa Kiefer in Durango, Colorado. It is sponsored in part by Milomedia web design. Please note that this is not intended to be a field guide, as much as an easy-to-use picture guide to various native plants in the Durango area. We strive for accuracy, but if you find something mislabled or identified incorrectly, please don't hesitate to contact us. In some cases, we will include several species in a single record with "spp." listed as the species. This is the case when there are many species in a particular genus or when hybridization is frequent. There may also be a case where we just got it dead wrong, we're not fussy, please let us know if you find an error and we'll correct it! If you'd like to double check the ID of a plant, please check out Southwest Colorado Wildflowers, an excellent native plant website that also covers our area.
You can help identify plants, or post photos of plants you'd like to see identified within our Facebook page.
Our goal is to spread awareness about the value of using native plants in water wise landscaping, as well as celebrate the beauty of these plants that often go unnoticed.
