Since Sierra stopped its' on-line reference via Gardening.com, I have searched, but cannot locate another that even comes close! Help... please!

    Hi Kellie ~
    I've used www.hortpix.com ALOT! As long as you have the name of the plant, you get a pretty good picture here. Most of the pictures I've seen were "full shots", not just a close-up of the blooms, leaves or whathave you, but a full shot so you get an idea of what the matured plant looks like. Hope this helps!
