This list provides basic information about all the plants that a creator can place in CAW, including where they would normally turn up in a real world environment. The Sims 3 is fiction, of course, so creators can place plants where they like, but this resource should help those who are aiming for a more realistic flora layout.

The Chinese Water Lilies introduced in The Sims 3: World Adventures are also lotuses. Lotuses are suitable for any cultivated aquatic garden, but mainly occur in the wild in Asia, upper African, some parts of North America, and in the Caribbean. Even though they are not water lilies, when creators want to give the impression of water lilies, these do the job just fine.

Chinese Lantern is a term used for a very wide range of plants around the world - anything that looks a bit like a lantern seems prone to getting this name, but the most well-known Chinese Lantern plant is Physalis alkekengi, and this is what the Sims 3 plant is based on. It is native to Asia and Europe, but cultivated in many countries. This plant is actually a kind of gooseberry so fits it well in herb gardens, however it is extremely invasive, so it would look more realistic with a small fence around it, or growing out of an object like a tyre or box.

Peonies are native to Asia, southern Europe, and western North America, but are cultivated in gardens around the world.

It is therefore probably not ideal for crowding into gardens, preferring a bit of space to itself on the lot. Tree peonies like Paeonia ludlowii need a climate that alternates seasonally between warm and cold to grow well, so they are not suitable for tropical worlds, or very cold worlds.

Sunflowers need full sun to grow, so place them in warmer, sunnier worlds and and on brighter, more open lots. Although sunflowers are renowned for following the sun this is actually a myth - sunflower heads typically face east and don't move, so you might be tempted to place them with their heads facing in the direction of your sunrise.

Oak Chestnut trees are still in the genus Quercus, so proper oaks. They are native to the eastern United States of America, and sometimes also called rock oaks. They are not usually large, so use the bigger version sparingly. They are often canopy in oak-heath forests, and grow predominantly in rocky upland forests.

Red Oak trees are oaks in the section Querus Lobatae, however the red oak in The Sims 3 is probably modeled on small Querus rubra specifically. This tree grows in a wide range of American forests, is less common as canopy in oak-heath forests than other oaks, and favours growing on well-drained stream banks.

Palm trees are a botanical family of perennial liana, shrubs, and trees. They are the only members of the Arecaceae. Obviously they're commonly thought to be in subtropical and tropical areas, however, with the amount of diversity in the species, they can work in most worlds with hot enough climates (26-32 °C/80-90 °F weather more or less) even deserts or rain forests. They can be found both clustered and solitary. Technically, the palm tree can be placed in colder climates, but even the most robust ones of its species can only just barely survive with the temperature near -9 °C (15 °F). So generally, it's best not to place them within cold worlds, or if your world gets vastly colder weather during it's winter/fall period.
