Below are some of the most common evergreen and semi-evergreen herbaceous forest plants found in uplands on the Franklin Pierce Rindge Campus. These are plants that in most cases you can find year round -- unless of course there's snow cover. This is a great list to use for the months of September through April.

If you find a species on campus that doesn't match any below, try using the Go Botany Website. Also, keep in mind that even though many of the pictures below show plants in flower or with fruits, most of the plants that you'll encounter won't be flowering or fruiting; focus on leaf characteristics.

April, 2015. This page is currently under construction. Expected completion date: September, 2015.

Good luck!, and, feel free to contact me if you have questions or suggestions for improving this guide (singler - at - franklinpierce - dot - edu)!

NOTE FOR SMARTPHONE USERS: If you click on a picture below, then once on the species page you click on the picture again, you can easily save the GIF image to your phone in order to use your phone as a field guide. Eventually I hope to develop a smartphone app from this guide. Stay tuned!
