I have a Coral Bells with a label Amber Lady Coral Bells - Heuchera Hybrid, Heuchere Heureka Amber Lady that I want to add to the Data Base but it comes up as an invalid Genus.
Thanks, Lin Jarvis

I just noticed that it's part of a trade series, so in that case, you'd enter it this way:

The genus is Heuchera

The cultivar is Heureka Amber Lady

The common name is Coral Bells

The trade name is Amber Lady

The series is Heureka™
