Hi there -

I'm trying to add a plant to the database and not sure what I'm missing. The plant info is:
Hebe x franciscana and the cultivar is Pinocchio. I receive an error message that the genus is not correct, even when I tried entering only Hebe.

Patty, the Hebe genus no longer exists. All of the Hebe species have been reclassified as Veronica species.

It's OK, you can use hebe as the common name...Who the heck was Veronica?
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
