I was looking at the NAC and found a reference to Plants of the Bible, by Zohary. This looks like a really useful resource --is there anything that's currently available like it (I couldn't find anything), or could we get this resource?

:-)

Anchor Bible Dictionary has a pretty extensive listing if memory serves.

ASROCK x570 Creator, AMD R9 3950x, HyperX 64gb 3600 RAM, Asus Strix RTX 2080 ti, 2tb m.2 Seagate Firecuda SSD (x2) ...and other mechano-digital happiness.

The other suggestion i can make is that all the plants of the Bible are incorporated into Biblical Things. So if you look up "lily", you'll get a complete list of references, as well as images from, and links to, the dictionaries you own (that are part of the LCV).

That's nice if you already know what plants are listed in the Bible. But if you're looking for a list of them, that won't help.

But check out the Zondervan Dictionary of Bible Themes (comes in all base packages except Home). This has a list, with Scripture references, under the category 4402 plants:

This doesn't give any info about the various plants, though. Anchor Bible Dictionary does indeed have more info, under the article titled FLORA, e.g.:

But it's still not as much as would be contained in a full-length book on the subject, so I'm in agreement with that recommendation. I couldn't find any sample pages from it online.

I'd purchase this resource, and similar ones also.

Searching for "plants" and "flora" will get you to the LCV links for several dictionaries: Baker and Tyndale have nice articles.

You can also find a list of the more common ones in Willmington's Book of Bible lists, in the article on Plants (36  out of about 115 in total).

Yes, but all this is why it would be good to have a specific resource in this space... There are bits and pieces here and there, but nothing definitive and generally complete.
