|Hi, Thanks for this place, I'm in love with this site. I have a logistics question. I've got my "Plant List" going but all the plants are listed (alphabetically) Common Name first. For me it's backwards. Can I make my list Genus, Species and then Common Name. Those Common Names are such a regional thing. |
I love this place either way. So many questions, so much fun.
Thank you, Lori

|Hi Lori, thanks for the kind words about this site!|
As for the list, they are actually indeed sorted alphabetically. I know the common name displays first in each plant listing but the overall list is sorted by genus.

|It IS a bit confusing having the common name show first. Half the time I've never heard of the common name that displays for some of my plants. |
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

|I agree it would be better to have the genus take precedence over common name in the list and database. But I don't find it that difficult to ignore the common name when searching my list. One thing that might help is, if you are searching for a specific genus in your plant list, use the drop down list that say "view only genus" at the top of the page. |

|I get it now. I had only a few plants posted when I wrote. Now I'm up to a hundred and realize|
that they WERE Genus first all along. Thanks for all the responses. This place
is so cool!
