I just added an additional photo of Dahlia Enchantress to the database, and noticed that in the details it is listed as orange - which it is not,(White - Fuchsia blend) and as a Waterlily type - which it is not(semi-Cactus). I tried to edit it, but the edit wouldn't stick to propose it. Any suggestions?

Geof, I'm not sure why your proposal didn't go go through. Would you mind trying again?

Go to Dahlia (Dahlia 'Enchantress')

Select "Edit data details"
Make the changes mentioned above
Select "Preview your proposal"
Select "Save and submit the proposal"

It should then go to the Data Proposals queue for review/approval. Let us know how this works.

I did - and you know something - I think it was probably working before but I wasn't looking at the page carefully enough, and was only seeing the right hand column which had the old info on it, not the proposed change.

Now it is done.

Thanks
