Dave, I tried to suggest name changes for Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda 'Shiro Noda') to the accepted names and synonyms as in the RHS but the system told me the plant already exists.

White Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda 'Alba')

Janet,
Is this the other in question?
I've come across this frequently. Delete one plant that "already exists" or the plant with the fewest pictures, data, ... that need to be moved. Then edit data accordingly on the one that remains. Don't forget to propose pictures be moved before you propose the delete. I'm guilty of this but trying to remember.

Aaah, thanks Evan! I looked but didn't see! Or maybe I saw but only realised they were the same later then forgot it was there. Rolling my eyes.

I have uploaded pics for the other entry so will have to wait for those to show then move them, then edit!

How about, delete the one with no pics then edit name of other?
