|I received the following message when I tried to add my new Chef's Choice Rosemary:
"It appears that this genus is not valid. If you are certain that it is a valid genus, please post a message to the Plants Admins requesting that it be added. In the message, please let them know all the fields you entered. They will then add the genus to the allowed list and future plants in this genus will be accepted."
These are the fields I entered:
Primary common name: Chef’s Choice® Rosemary
Accepted botanical name (Genus species): Rosemary officinalis
Cultivar: Roman Beauty PP18192
Trade Name: * Chef’s Choice® Rosemary
These are the sites I searched trying to get this right:
Are there sites to research this type of thing (very new plants) that would be more acceptable? Or did I just put stuff in the wrong places? I hate to waste your time (and mine) providing improper info. Any guidance you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

|The genus is actually Rosmarinus, so you'd enter Rosmarinus officinalis for the botanical name.
Chef's Choice is the trade name and 'Roman Beauty' is the cultivar name. Don't add the PP number to the cultivar or trade name. So your fields should be:
Primary common name: Rosemary
Accepted botanical name (Genus species): Rosmarinus officinalis
Cultivar: Roman Beauty
Trade Name: Chef’s Choice®

|OK Dave, thanks...but...what should have clued me in to the fact that it should have been "Rosmarinus officinalis" instead of "Rosemary officinalis"?
All 3 of the sites I noted above listed it as "Rosemary officinalis" and I kind of thought that at least the Sunset-Western site would have it right, since they are the ones bringing it out!
Thanks for your help!

|I noticed that those sites had the genus wrong. It was their error and that's what caused the confusion.
You could search the database here for Rosemary and it shows you the actual genus.

|If anyone is reading this old thread, please note that the Rosmarinus genus no longer exists. It has been asorbed by the Salvia genus.|
