Okay, we're getting somewhere!

Go to the Plant Database front page (click on "Plant Database" tab up top) and you will now see a little scrollable box on the right side of the "Browse and Search" area called "Visit our custom databases".

Inside that box you can scroll down and find all our 115 (and growing) primary plants. Click on the name to be taken to the big custom DB feature I made some time ago.

Check it out and you all let me know what you think.

Nice!

Did we lose Hibiscus syriacus or am I just not seeing it?

H. syriacus is listed as "Rose Of Sharon".

The Database

I can change it to read something else, at your wish.

It's going by the parent plant feature, so I think yes.

Yes, I overlooked the common name. I'll think on it as to changing that but good for now. It's a hardy Hib as well as is H. moscheutos which already has that common name. So "Rose of Sharon" is probably as good as any of the common names. Is that about as clear as mud. Green Grin!

Maybe better as Hibiscus moscheutos and Hibiscus syriacus now that I look at it.
