Plants and flowers that can be included in your tortoise diet. Please take note of the scientific name and which part of the plant is edible, if it states Edible Flower then only the flower may be given. I omitted plants where sub species are not edible and can cause confusion.

These plants are only meant as an addition to the diet and should not be used as a staple unless otherwise stated.
