Would it be possible to add alphabetical A-Z as choices when searching by characteristics?

It would be easier to find things and narrow down a broad search, I think.

Also would better enable you to capture everything, when the results of a search exceed the maximum.

Well, that search isn't intended to be searching by name, cultivar or species. It's looking at the databox attributes.

If you want to search by name, there's the other searches for that.

No, I was not thinking of a search by name.

I was thinking, when you search for Daffodils by Award, it exceeds the maximum, and I cannot see all the awarded Daffodils.

Many times you may want to see all the results that match an award(for instance), but are limited by the 'maximum'.

I have tried limiting the search by division, but some divisions exceed the maximum, too.

I can imagine this occuring with other genus in various instances.

I see. Maybe I can make it so that if you are only searching for one single attribute, then it won't limit you to 100 results but let you see them all, with a page numbering system.
