Welcome to the National Arboretum’s Botanical Explorer, or A•B•E.* With links to our plant records and image databases, A•B•E is a powerful new search and mapping tool for researchers and homeowners alike. Detailed information about the Arboretum’s accessioned plants and herbarium specimens is available by clicking on the map or using the browser. We are working hard on linking images to our accessions and appreciate your patience as we build that database.

A•B•E can also help you plan a visit. Use it to look around the gardens and grounds and then map what you want to see!


*The acronym also recalls the founder of the United States Department of Agriculture, President Abraham Lincoln. The Arboretum is part of the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service.
