Dave it looks like there is a problem with the ability to do a search in the sempervivum part of the database, and in the Primary Database.

Sempervivum 'Oh My' won't come up on either search tool.

I'm obviously not Dave, but I believe it has always been the case that the search engine ignores words that are less than three letters. You have to find cultivars like Iris 'Az Ap' by browsing the database.

Ha! I'm pretty sure Kent is right and that is how I found 'Oh My'.
