I did not know that the common name for Epimediums was Barrenwort-----
searching for Epimediums does not give me the Barrenwort data?
Is there a way to have the Latin names searchable too?

Search for Epimedium and you'll find all of them. If you use the plural form, you'll find nothing because nothing is listed in the database as Epimediums, and the search engine looks for matching words.

Caroline, another 'trick' I've learned is to search using less info rather than more (counter-intuitive, but works). If you search for 'epidmed' it will bring up a whole slew of epdimediums and save you the trouble of thinking if the ending is -ium, -iam, or any host of other variations.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
