Dave I just noticed that the Jovibarba entries do not show the 'Cultivar name' on the data page for each entry. Job's Beard (Sempervivum heuffelii 'Apache')

Some of the sempervivum do show the cultivar names under the 'Data' information, but only if they have a 'Series' name added also.
Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Treebeard')

I also notice that we can no longer do a search in the sempervivum database by 'Series'. We used to be able to do that.

It's the result of streamlining, Lynn. If information is presented in the top line of the entry, it isn't repeated in the body of the entry. All of the name information is still there if you click on "Edit plant name."

I don't know whether you could search by series within the Sempervivum Database before, but you can run a general search for the Sempervivum series. Here's what I found when I searched for "sempervivum lord of the rings":

We used to be able to search it from the Parent Plant. That entry is missing from the Parent plant now.

Makes sense on the streamlining. Smiling
