Hi- I wanted to post a photo, also post some seeds in the swap, for Ozothamnus rosmarinifolius 'Silver Jubilee', a very nice shrub. When I looked in Plants Database, what comes up is Helichrysum rosmarinifolium. I figured the name had been changed. Anyway I googled it, and I think they are the same. I then went to The Catalogue of Life, and they don't even list Helichrysum as a synonym or as anything at all. Could you check this out so it is listed correctly?

Here is a link to the RHS website, and catalogue of life:

Hi Mary,

Helichrysum rosmarinifolium is indeed listed as a synonym:
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

Seems the database entry had the genera swapped. I've now fixed this:
Sea Rosemary (Ozothamnus rosmarinifolius 'Silver Jubilee')
Sea Rosemary (Ozothamnus rosmarinifolius)

Will have to check the rest of the genus when time permits to make sure there are no others that are incorrect.

The advantage of being in a different time zone... I'm awake when the other admins are generally asleep!
