Tour of essential features # 19 Back ] Next ]

Keeping plants well spaced is one of the most important rules for achieving optimal health and beauty.  But remembering the mature height and spread of so many different species is impossible -- keeping track of this essential information is one thing every good botanical software does.

The Compleat Botanica displays height and spread using a special tool that visually shows the data on a horizontal bar graph.  Using a simple click and drag operation, you can specify a range of mature heights and widths.  This same tool is used when filtering your collection to show only plants whose dimensions meet your criteria.  Dimensions can be specified in either U.S. Customary units or metric units.
