Garden view
Welcome to the plant search page of the Hortus botanicus Leiden. Here, you can search our living plant collections for more information on the plants and buildings in the garden and greenhouses. You can also find more information on the buildings, busts and benches.
The plants in the garden are searchable with their scientific names or common names. With many different plant species you will find information on its distribution, location in the garden and stories about its history, cultivation and biology. This database is updated regularly.
With the buttons at the top of the page you can explore the garden using our interactive map (Map), browse the list of scientific plant names (Names), find information on the busts, seats and buildings (Features) and look at thematic walks (Tours). Here you can find specific thematic routes, such as the walk along some Ancient plants or the Crown jewels in the Hortus.
