Hi. This is a plant I purchased recently from American Plant in Bethesda, MD. I have confirmed the genus/species in the MOBot database: http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFind...

The plant I have is Calylophus serrulatus, cultivar 'Prairie Lode'. When I tried to enter it as a new plant in the ATP database, I got an error message saying the genus is not valid. Is this plant known by some other name?

thanks,
Catmint
