I purchased this plant today. I'm not finding it in the database. Have I missed it, or is it a new one that needs to be entered?

Apparently it's not in the database yet so you can submit the information and enter it. http://garden.org/plants/propose/new_plant/

There must be more to the name. Elanos is a trade series, so it can't stand alone.

Wow, talk about incomplete labeling! Here's a page showing more than a dozen different plants of the Elanos series. I guess you won't know the name of yours until it blooms.

Yes! I bought a lot of plants today, and I'm having similar problems with 6 others. Sad Fortunately my plant does have blooms now and it looks like Deep Pink.

I totally goofed up on the proposal for the database listing of this one. Should I try again, or do you want to do it?

Thanks, Lin. I think I already added all of them to the database from the Pac-Elsner site.

Can you correct the title of this thread, Zuzu so it won't confuse others?

No, Karen, I can't change it, and I don't think it will be confusing to anyone who reads the whole thread. Smiling
