Langley's Sendall Garden greenhouse attracts visitors with its array of plants from tropical areas around the world.
Finding out about the plants is now easier thanks to a TrailTalker digital program that uses a QR code.
People use their QR-enabled cellphones to access TrailTalker which provides multi-media information on the plants.
"This new technology is the wave of the future and there will be increased numbers of people accessing this program," said Len Walters, the City's parks superintendent.
TrailTalker was unveiled July 5 and will use information from the Friends of Sendall Garden Tropical Greenhouse for the plant vignettes. People can also access the program at home at trailtalker.ca.
While the greenhouse does have some information available, there is the opportunity for more details to be used with the digital program.
There are 14 vignettes and other plants will be spotlighted in the future. The new vignettes would be ready in April 2013.
"There will be a modest cost to change them," Walters explained. "That decision will be made after the summer once the project is evaluated."
The greenhouse is home to about 50 species of plants and even some insects both unwanted and the ones brought in to control them.
The park at 201A Street and 50th Avenue is 3.67 acres of landscaped plants, trees and shrubs that include a nature trail, two duck ponds and the greenhouse.
The greenhouse is open to the public from dawn to dusk April through Oct. 1.
So far Chilliwack, Surrey, and Langley have purchased TrailTalker programs for specific amenities in their communities.
