Dave, I am having a problem Whistling
For Clematis, I put in a search for white and tolerates full sun. Mine did not come up and both characteristic are in the description. Also the data base would not let me add my plant. ( That's the problem, it would not let me add a plant.) I know you are working on this so maybe it will let me later. GREAT JOB BY-THE-WAY Hurray!
(Clematis 'Huldine')

What do you mean it wouldn't let you add a plant? As in add a new entry? Were you trying to add Huldine? It's already in the database.

No, when I did a search for white clematis for full sun, mine did not show up. I know it is in there, but it does not come up when you do a search.

I went to the search page:

http://garden.org/plants/group/clematis/search/

and I checked off:

Bloom Color (Tepals): White/Cream/Silver hue
Preferred Light: Prefers full sun

I then clicked search and it found 7 plants. One of those was 'Hundine'.

I tried the same but instead of 'prefers full sun', I checked 'tolerates full sun' and got an entirely different list. Maybe having those two similar choices is not such a good idea.

Really those don't even belong. So much of the Clematis architecture is redundant with the primary details. We're going to have to address this sooner or later.
