The iPhone can now recognise and identify numerous subjects, one of which is plants! This little known feature is useful in a few ways. Obviously, keen gardeners and plant lovers can now simply take an image of a flower they like, look it up instantly (or when it suits them) and then go buy one for themselves, all without needing to ask for or remember the grandiose Latin name.
So actually this did not work on my iPhone 12 Pro, but the Google Photos app (on the iPhone) did in fact do a lookup and worked. (at least my wife says it is correctly identified, as I have no clue which plant is which).
