We have this:
Lotus Vine (Lotus maculatus)
And then we have this:
Lotus Vine (Lotus maculatus 'Gold Flash')

I believe "Gold Flash" is a cultivar of Lotus maculatus. Shouldn't the second entry be listed as Lotus maculatus "Gold Flash?"

And I think the same would apply to Lotus "Amazon Sunset."
Lotus Vine (Lotus 'Amazon Sunset')

Or do I totally misunderstand the whole Cultivar thing?

People who add new plants don't always know the species. If you know the species, you can propose that the name be edited. Smiling

Aw, you're going to make me work, aren't you? And here I thought you'd just wave your magic wand and fix it. Rolling my eyes. Smiling

I easily could fix it myself, but don't you want to earn the acorns? It's a really easy way to earn them.

There is conflicting information on Lotus 'Gold Flash', but Lotus 'Amazon Sunset' is a hybrid and, thus, the entry in the ATP database is correct:

Darn. I didn't see that either. When I went looking for it, it was described everywhere I looked as Lotus maculatus "Amazon Sunset."

Ok, so do we care about including the information that Amazon Sunset is a hybrid of Lotus berthelotii and Lotus maculatus? I seem to recall that there was some discussion about whether or not to include the parentage of hybrids. I personally like having that sort of information. Would that just be included as a comment?

Yes, we do care. Smiling We did have that discussion and you're right that it should just be included as a comment.
