Hello. I was just hoping for help. I wanted to add a peony but am having a hard time. I used Peony as common name and Paeonia lactiflora as genus and Celebrity as cultiver but am getting error saying that is not proper genus. Do I have them in wrong boxes? Thanks for your help.

Do as you did before with this change:
Genus: Paeonia
Species: lactiflora

Should work fine.
