Don't post photos to newsgroups. Put them on a web site and post the
URLs here or in other groups, e.g. gardening groups for domesticated
plants.

Be sure to give the geographical location of the plant. For many plants,
it's important to see flowers and/or fruits to be able to identify them.
Other info about the plants may also be helpful.

For example:

"Flowers in a roadside ditch near the north shore of Lake Erie in early spring"
"Tree growing in a cedar swamp near Ottawa, Ontario"
"Vine in a hanging basket in Stockholm Sweden in July"
"Orchid at the botanical garden in Singapore"
"Lichen in a crevice on the south face of Mt Everest at about 5000 m"
"This thing is taking over my grandma's garden in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan"

Looking forward to another round of Name That Plant!

Note that there are a number of specialist photograph publishing cum
social networking websites, such as Flikr, Tinypics and Webshots (and
probably several more).

2 or 3 years ago there was and hoping there still is a newsgroup that
was specially charted for binary pictures to be posted, for
identification. Don't know if it still exists though.

There are alt groups that you can post binaries to, but most sites don't
get them, or if they do, they expire them very quickly. These groups
compose more than 90% of a full feed, and contain mostly pornography and
software, music, videos and movies that violate copyright by being posted.
Posters generally ignore the name and original purpose of the group, and
few if any people use them for that purpose, so just getting the ones of
particular interest is futile. Tragedy of the commons on a global scale.

As Stewart mentioned, there are a lot of free sites where you can
post photos.
