Hi, could you please correct some misidentifications in your plant database?
The photo in Campanula saxifraga is actually of Campanula rotundifolia.

None of the photos posted under Campanula medium var. calycanthema are actually of this variety; they are simply Campanula medium, but not var. calycanthema. Var. calycanthema has a coloured bract at the base of the flower which forms the "saucer" of the "cup and saucer". A very common mistake, which is unfortunately propagated by seed vendors who incorrectly describe the regular canterbury bells that they are selling as "cup and saucer".

Thanks,
growitall

Hi Lori, thanks for this. You actually have the power to move these yourself. Just open the image up and scroll to the bottom and click on "Move this image to another plant". You then specify where it should go and a moderator will review and approve the action.

So.... how does this work? The photos are still under the wrong species, so did I not do this correctly?

Were you able to click on the photos to enlarge them and scroll down to see the "Move this image to another plant"?

And after that a moderator or admin will approve it. Until the action is reviewed and approved they will not move.

Are the photos correct now?

No, they aren't.
By the way, I should mention that there are now two correct photos of Campanula saxifraga plus the original incorrect one (which I attempted to move or have moved to Campanula rotundifolia).
It still remains that none of the photos under Campanula medium var. calycanthema is actually that variety (and I had attempted to move or have these moved to Campanula medium, which is what they are).
The moderators have likely been very busy but on the other hand, I wasn't sure if perhaps I had done my part incorrectly.
Thanks,
growitall

Hi Lori, I don't see any image move proposals of yours in the moderation queue. http://garden.org/plants/mod/props/
Do you mind trying again?

Okay, I've done it correctly now! *Blush* I wasn't clicking on the radio button for the species the photo would be moved to; instead, I was clicking on the species name and being taken into the species page.
Thanks,
Lori
