I think this article shows up in the wrong place (twice). The author is named Emma.

Sempervivum Companion Plants
http://garden.org/ideas/view/Emma/1219/Sempervivum-Companion...

It shows up in the daffodil db under the cultivar 'Emma' of which there are 2 of (so named).

Large Cupped Daffodil (Narcissus 'Emma')
Large Cupped Daffodil (Narcissus 'Emma')

I guess it's ok there, but it's certainly not relevant.

This easily can happen when two cultivars share the same name. The system has no way of knowing that the article's irrelevant in one case.

I'm a little confused. the article is irrelevant in both cases, the article has nothing to do with daffodils.

Oh, I see what you mean. It's there only because the author's name is Emma. That is confusing.
