The Salvias db has 1,994 listings and it's on the bottom of the plant-specific databases list and the Clematis db has 1,864 listings (130 less) and is showing above the salivas in the order. Can the salvias db be moved above the Clematis db?

It's an automated thing, based on the scores of the plants in each plant specific database. Each plant has a score based on how many different people have posted stuff to that plant. Taken all together, then, daylilies has the highest score of them all since that is the database that has the most different people posting. Then comes irises, followed by roses, etc.

The top 10 scoring databases are shown first in order of their score, then the rest are alphabetical.

And actually I haven't updated that list in a while, and I just now updated it and the salvias (as well as dahlias) actually dropped off and were replaced by daffodils and tomatoes.

I always wondered why they weren't simply alphabetical. This explains it. Good to know.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
