I enjoy going to nurseries now that we are approaching winter here and the yard is going dormant. I always take my camera and take pictures of plants I find appealing. Sometimes they have ID's and other times they regrettably don't. I have posted a few of those NOID pictures here asking for ID help and received responses from people who have knowledge of these plants.but might suggest a couple of possibilities. At what point is a suggested ID sufficient that the plant can be added to the data base. Is that my judgment? Should these pictures not be included? Should I leave it up to the moderator? What do you think?

Paul ,
I see you have a lot of views and no reply ...yet
I to am interested in knowing the answer from a higher source.

Right now if I have a plant I am not sure of I have been keeping them in a file for further conformation and research.
In my personal opinion I would not want to have wrong information on display ,because I personally plan on using this plant database a lot and would like to be able to tell others that "I find it accurate".

Just one opinion here Smiling
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.
