Are you confused about what the beautiful plants are and where they come from when you visit the botanic garden? Do you wonder how gardeners take care of various flowers at the same time?

You would find that there are plant tags  standing in almost every flowerpot. Nowadays, garden markers are commonly seen in greenhouses, gardens, parks, bonsai and flowerpots. They act as a useful database for gardening.

Plants have to be carefully packed before they are sent from the greenhouse to the checkout. Garden markers are usually included in the exquisite package which could not only attract the consumers’ attention but also provide them with necessary information about the plant.

However, have you ever noticed what the plant labels said? Today, we will talk about what could be written on the plant tags.


Names are certainly the most commonly seen on garden markers, especially when you are running a flower garden or doing business. Customers would learn about what the bonsai is as soon as they see the plant labels.

Some common plants have a local name for specific states or other areas, but they also have a scientific name. Although the scientific name is usually longer and rarer, it is known to most people. Leaving scientific names on the plant tags are definitely a good way to avoid misunderstanding.


Some gardens describe the appearance, color, bloom time briefly on the labels, especially for nursery plants and seeds so that you could have complete knowledge about what they are looking at.

Some special quality is also listed if necessary, such as resistance to cold, heat and so on.

Special Growing Conditions

Different plants have different requirements on their growing conditions. You can’t put different species in the same places.

  • Sun/Shade

For example, how much or how often should the plant be exposed to the sun? Some need direct sunshine all day long, some need full shade and some need half sun and half shade.

  • Temperature

Do your plants prefer higher temperature or lower? Some plants have been accustomed to live in the cold places. Once they are transplanted to the temperate or tropical climate, they could easily wither or even die.

  • Soil

Leave the most favorable soil condition on the label, either dry or humid,  fertile or barren. Fertile soil is not always beneficial for plants. What fits them the most is the best.


It is of great importance to learn about the maximum height and width of a growing plant. It tells how much space it would take when it gets mature so that you could make a proper landscaping plan.

Additionally, you could also learn about whether it would grow in clumps or at high speed so as to decide the exact numbers that you should buy.


If you just want to try growing something, try to read the plant tags carefully. You might fall in love with the flowers at first sight, but only by reading the tags can you decide whether it is usually for you to grow.

If you are a gardener or businessman, it is your duty to fully explain to your customers what the plants are, where they come from, their special needs, and so on. Inserting plant labels is not just for fun or decoration, but helping the plants say out what they need.
