There has been a recent update to the Plant Database. You can search many ways now for any type of plant: by characteristics, series, color, growing zones, etc. Here are some helpful instructions, using Sempervivum for the demonstration. This information applies to all other types of plants within the database.

It finds anything with either those names, Citrus or Palm, either in the common name field, the species, or the cultivar name.
