I did not see (I must be blind) that I had already added a Local Report for Lavender Stardust:
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Lavender Stardust')

I forgot that the report is posted right below the cultivar information, not at the very bottom of the page with the event reports. Which is a bit confusing to have the add a report and the actual posted report so far apart. Maybe I am a little slow, but my guess is others might perhaps make the same mistake I just made. I kept seeing the "event reports" thinking that the Local Report would show up there also. I know .... my mistake.

Two requests:

1) Is there a way to add the "File a Local Report" option in the same general location that the report shows up in? In all honesty, the local report and the event report confused me and I KNOW about these 2 reports, but messed mine up anyway. (Other members might do the same thing that I did, especially when in a hurry.)

2) When I didn't see my local report in the location I believed (in error) that it would show up in, I thought I didn't hit the right button, so I submitted ANOTHER report. My computer glitched and I did it AGAIN! Yeah .... I'm on a roll today! Can there be an added function "delete report" option? I need to delete the two reports I submitted today because I didn't see the original one initially. (I forgot I even submitted one previously.) I often scroll quickly through the cultivar information and photos when adding something, because there is so much listed. I am glad there is a lot of information and photos, but when in a hurry I tend to speed scroll. Sticking tongue out

I just found something else that at first confused me (which is easy to do, I know!) ...

In the Plant Database files, at the top of each page is two links:

Thumb of 2015-08-21/beckygardener/e7c86d

When I click on each link, it takes me to the same section of the link page. Those that "have" a cultivar and those that "want" a cultivar are listed in different boxes on the Plant List page. It seems redundant to go to the exact same location using both links. Wouldn't it be better if the link for those members that "want" a plant, have the link take you directly to the members in the "want" box ?

I've thought a lot about the way the two different reports are presented and I agree that I need to do something. I'm continuing to contemplate it.

Dave - Do the "event" reports HAVE to be on the cultivar page? Seems to me they would be better placed in our own Plant Lists, not showing up in the Plant Database. I wasn't sure why it is done that way? Did someone request all those "events" to be posted in the Plant Database? I understand why the need for a Local Report, which should be with the database cultivar, but not personal events such as purchasing, planting, etc. (I wasn't sure how that is relative to the database info?)
