If you are new to this
ChileFlora.com is your window to the world of the native Chilean
plants. It provides you with the opportunity to learn about the
Chilean plants, their nutritional and medicinal properties,
identify them, and to purchase seeds and seedlings. All that you
can get also en
Here you will find a short
introduction to the Chilean flora. Additionally, we present
several galleries of
images of the Chilean nature, in the belief that in order to
understand fully the world of the Chilean plants you have to get
a feeling for the environment in which they live. In the same
section you will soon find descriptions of the different
habitats in Chile. Finally, in the
links section you will find not only links to interesting
sites which deal with Chilean flora, but also a bibliography,
which we will be constantly expanding.
The heart of our page is a database
and on-line herbarium of live plants with the
descriptions, uses, growing tips, and photos of many native Chilean plants - currently we present
more than 1400 species
with over 14000 photos, and
soon we will make available much more from our internal data
base with over 24000 photos and 2000 species! This is a long-term
project and we hope eventually to cover most species of the
Chilean flora (about 5000 species). You can browse directly our
database by means of indexes
here. Plus, we
sell 440 species of
seedlings of Chilean native plants.
