STOCK PHOTOS & FEATURES FLOWERS & GARDENS
INTRODUCTION
This stocklist is about flowers, plants, gardens and parks. You'll find stock photos as well as stories about gardens.

The flower and plant pictures are organized in two ways: for the editor and for the botanist. In the first part the editorial use of the images is stressed. The second shows a list of botanical (latin) names. Gardens and parks are organized by country, type and season. You'll find a list of garden features (like 'borders' and 'fences') as well.

All our photos are digital. All copyrights are reserved.

HOW THIS LIST WORKS
A link brings you to photos truly showing the subject. It is more precise than a normal search. The link stairs will lead you to garden stairways only; you don't end up with pictures of a restaurant called Under the Stairs.

If you like to narrow your search (say stairs in baroque gardens), click on stairs and the browser address bar shows the keyword. Now go back to the list, click baroque gardens and see the keyword. Then, in the browser addres bar, put both keywords together with a "-" inbetween. You can combine all keywords.
