I was adding some photos today and realized that a photo (and now the entry) that I had previously added was misnamed (by me). I entered it as 'BONIBRAE BLUE-EYED BABY' and it should be 'BONIBRAE BABY BLUE EYES'. Anyone know how to get it changed?

It's wrong in the AHS database so the the hybridizer needs to make the changes.

Bonibrae Blue Eyed Baby is the official registered name and that cannot be changed. Could this possibly be a case of the cultivar being put out in commerce before the name was registered? ( then possibly the original name might have been rejected?)

This is the entry Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Bonibrae Blue-eyed Baby')
and this is the AHS registered entry http://www.daylilies.org/DaylilyDB/detail.php?id=166727

and as mentioned, if it's wrong, only the hybridizer can change it with AHS and then we can change it. Perhaps they don't even know it's wrong.

Lilyland's Fried Eggplant was an easy fix, that kind of thing we can change without the change at AHS. Please propose edits anytime. Thanks @spiderjoe

Airy Delight is an evergreen on the Joiner's website., but a dormant in the database. I told the Joiner's this three years ago.

Ask Barry about 'BONIBRAE BLUE-EYED BABY' I see three more mistakes on his website. John Peat does the webpage. Probably just an error on their part.

It is a good suggestion from Joe to contact the hybridizer to see if this could possibly be an error on his website. Since the cultivar in question was registered in 2011, only the hybridizer can offer a change. There is a fee, and the change must be only to correct an orthographic ( spelling) error. I would not buy this as a spelling error. Everyone who registers, as you know, receives a copy of the registration data sheet WHEN they register. The registrant is urged to look over the data carefully to make sure it is correct and if they see an error, to let the registrar know immediately. THAT is the time to make changes. Sadly, I am convinced that some don't bother to check.

I just sent an email to Bonnibrae Daylilies to see if I can get an answer as to which one is correct.

Thanks everyone for the info. I had checked Barry's website, but not the AHS database.

Barry said "Whatever AHS has is. I posted picture on website before name was officially accepted by ahs".
So all is correct in the database. Thumbs up

I noticed that Midnight Kaleidoscope is listed as a Tetraploid in ATP database but as a Diploid in the AHS database and on the hybridizer's website.

Thanks Doris, I fixed it! Thumbs up

If anyone sees any other errors , you can click the 'edit data details', make the corrections, scroll down and submit. :nodding:
And that's the way to add extra details like fertility.
