One of these days, when I have lots of free time Big Grin , I'm going to enter photos and details for my alpine and rock garden plants and I don't think there's anywhere on the form that mentions suitability for rock gardens. Don't you think that should be included in "Uses"? After the search engine is sophisticated enough to look for plants of specific categories, I would be likely to look for rock garden plants and I don't think I'm the only one.

Good call. I've added "Suitable for alpine/rock gardens" to the Uses area.

Thumbs up
I am trying to get caught up on all the postings about the database. Sorry I'm so late to this thread.
