Carrara and Anything Grows were used to make 3ds output. The result was fed into Bryce, smoothed, mounted, textured, lit, and rendered.
It's easy to merge these into your scene, they come with textures already applied. Excellent for architectural rendering. With just a few in your repertoire, you can fill an entire scene: using some scale, rotate and reflect transforms makes it harder to identify copies.

Large files (002, 010) contain textures and geometry. Smaller files contain geometry only.
 
So far I've used four basis shapes: Cone, Cylinder, Sphere and Plane.
 
Shape Examples
Cone 001                    
Cylinder 002                    
Sphere 014 015                  
Plane 003 004 005 006 007 008 009 010 011 013 016
 
When placing the plants, it's often desirable to intermix different shapes, lengths and densities of strands for a natural look. For example the sphere and cone may be used. It looks natural to align the center of the two sets of strands. All the models are based on one of the above basis shapes. Note that some plants may also have optional tip objects of another shape.
For ease of reference, the plants are grouped into 3x3 categories based on number and length of the strands, as follows:
 
Strand Length
Strand Density
Short (2)
Medium (5)
Long (10)
Sparse (100)
003 009 010
006
005 007 014
Medium (500)
008
004 011
001 002
Dense (1000)
013 016
015
