               Computer is very important in our life and they get into all fields. So, in this research computer’s application will be used and it's importantly in recognition and classification plants' leaves, because of fewness of plants' classification experts. The used data base includes (35) types of different special plants after preprocessing on these pictures, the primal processing includes two practicals’: (picture enhancement and verges determine for image). In addition, we extract a group of geometrical features of plants' leaves depending on outwardness surround for leaf. Ten features are extracted. Euclidian for each leaf contains (surround, distance, center, main diameter, second diameter, and Extrema points).  Traditional distance is used for measuring distance between any two points. Then, the leaf of plant is recognized using Algorithm C4.5.
