For some reason I am having a problem adding plants to my plant list. I looked for questions and answers in several forums but the answer has eluded me...If I have a plant like perennial hardy lilies but do not know their exact cultivar(?) or name, how do I enter them to my list? Since I am just starting my high desert garden to a very empty property, I have quite a few plants I would like to keep track of on this database. I did find the generic 'Lilium' but could not see a button or key where I could "add this entry to my plant list". When I typed it into the "add Plant" line from my area it would not come up. I did see there were 14 others that had added the generic entry to their lists. Do all the plants on my list have to be specifically identified? Thank you for your help and reply...Pat

Hi Pat, and welcome to ATP.
If you skroll down the page a bit, look on the left side. You will see a blue button to add Lilium to your personal plant list.

Hope this was helpful?
