I would like to add a new plant that I purchased yesterday to the database. It is Vinca Minor Double Bowles . I do see an entry for Vinca Minor Bowles. Do I place this plant comment/growers report and/or photo there, or should there be a separate listing for my plant which has double instead of single blooms?

Deebie, You can add the plant by going to the database page and clicking on Add a new plant to the database, then enter the following information.

Primary common name: Vinca
Accepted Botanical Name: Vinca minor
Cultivar Name: Double Bowles (do not add quote marks)

Click on Proceed to Step 2

It will go into a queue for the database moderators and you will get a system message letting you know it's been added.

I forgot to say, it should be a separate entry because 'Double Bowles' is a different cultivar from the single version.

But for now you could upload a photo of the entire plant and a close up of the leaves ... then when it blooms you could upload some flower photos! Green Grin! You will get an acorn for an entire plant photo, an acorn for a leaf photo etc.

Yes, Vinca (Vinca minor 'Double Bowles') is now in the database ... we just need a few photos. Green Grin!

Hopefully @Deebie will upload photos of the plant and also leaf photos and flower pic's once her plant is in bloom.
