Movium Plantarum

Movium’s plant database Movium Plantarum was launched in 2010 and is a development of the database Swedish Dendrology (CD-ROM) from the 1990s by Sweden’s leading plant experts. Dendrology was a research project that run several years where over 1,000 trees and shrubs were described based on 17 unique plant characteristics, such as light conditions, flowering time, autumn colour and soil conditions. Movium Plantarum is a web-based database of plants for gardens, parks and landscapes that describe important features that have a bearing on how a plant can be used. It is a search tool for project leaders, planners, nursery assistants, landscapers, administrators, teachers and students. The purpose is to make this knowledge accessible to a wider target group and thus create conditions for vegetation knowledge to meet technical and architectural expertise.
