This may be old news to people, but wanted to share something that MarkB pointed out to me,
Jovibarba Sobolifera has had its official name changed to Sempervivum Globiferum per this example on a german website
"a mixture of different Sempervivum globiferum hybrids (formerly Jovibarba)"
website = http://www.semper-vivum.de/catalogsearch/result/?q=globiferu...
I'll keep looking for info regarding this.
I wonder if our dbase reflects the change?
And how someone searches for plants with changed names?
Thanks
Cheers

I have one I bought as Krebs 2 and found out it is listed as Dessert Bloom, no idea which came first. It seems crazy to have these name changes floating around out there!

Patty I just did a search for your plant under "kreb 2" and it did come up, so it seems that you can search by previous, or "also known as" names...makes sense, and pretty amazing!
Jovibarba sobolifera isn't a cultivar though its a genus so this effects a lot of plants that have previously been under this genus. Although looking on Wikipedia, they are already synonyms of each other, so this change maybe cleans things up! Blinking

I use this website when i manage the lily database:

http://www.theplantlist.org/

Just enter your genus species in the search box. The next page will give some initial information. Click on the link and you see what Jovibarba sobolifera (or whatever) is a synonym for. Sometimes a bunch of links for other authoritative sites comes up at the bottom. You should check those out too because some of them may be more up to date. Play around with it!

These are authoritative sites while wikipedia is, well....
