Have lots of photos from public gardens, need help on how to list as new plants :
Genus?
Species?

For example this Camellia Japonica

(Yes I'm aging) I would still like a sticky there for help.

Vi, I've submitted 'Snowman' for approval. Beautiful image. I'll be trying at least one of the cold hardy camellias here next spring. Can't wait.

Evan, just wait until you see the beauties I have photographed. Masse Lane Gardens is the American Camellia Center and is a wonderful place to visit in February. Maybe I will put in the the Public Gardens Forum, I had done a slideshow of the garden, it would be nice to show it it somewhere.

Paul, thanks for the tip, I'll try it--just thought I could get my help here...

For the camellia, if you find missing entries, all you need to add a new plant is:

Plant's primary common name: Camellia

Genus: Camellia

Species: as you can see above, japonica is used for all the named cultivars so far, but you can leave it blank if unsure as there are other species

Cultivar: name of the plant
