A comprehensive list of the vascular plants known, or reported, to occur in Minnesota (native, naturalized, and adventive species).
Family delineations are based on the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group arrangement (Bot. J. Linnean Soc. 141: 399-436, 2003) and species names are based on published volumes of the Flora of North America (FNA), recent journals for changes post FNA (if widely accepted by the major taxonomic indices), and Gleason and Cronquist 1991 for others. Although not all taxonomists may agree with FNA, a wide array of experts from many areas have been consulted and this consequently represents the most up-to-date understanding of our flora.
Common names as given in the USDA-NRCS Plants database (2008) are also provided, followed by other common names widely used, and by Indian names where known.
