We are pleased to announce 160 Free 3D Plant Models, our gift to you, so you can see for yourself why we are the industry leader for 3d Plant models.
Visit our Samples Page to download!
Over the past 19 years, we have constructed over 3,000 plant models and translated them in 12 popular formats, and the 160 Free Plants represent one (or more) Species from each of our 31 libraries so you may learn and appreciate both the wide biodiversity and botanical accuracy of our plant libraries.

Our models are built in a laborious multi-part process:
First, our experts visit botanical gardens worldwide to photograph and gather the leaf and bark for each plant. (View our English Yew leaf and bark textures). After the gather, we compare our notes and consult our “plant form” reference books to extrapolate the one plant into seasons and ages. We then browse whatever online photos of the leaves, bark, and representative plants we can find, to “final confirm” our seasons and ages. Then we use all the above materials to model the 3 to 9 plant variations needed for each Species to be able to make ecosystems renders.
Because of these painstaking modeling efforts, Xfrog has grown to be the industry leader for 3d plant quality. No other company provides you with procedurally modeled highly accurate plant variations built by botanical experts with real world data.
Select XfrogPlants credits include: Avatar, War of the Worlds, Polar Express, The Incredibles, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, and in use by architects as celebrated as: Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry for urban landscaping.

Xfrog plants are Procedural systems – our plants are not only available to you in 10 different 3d mesh formats, but also in XFR format (Xfrog) and as such you can animate procedural characteristics such as branching, plant growth, age, variations, or raise or lower polygonal complexity, with our software:
Xfrog 5.3 for Maya, Xfrog 5.3 for Cinema 4D and Xfrog for Windows!
