|When I type "Ram hemerocallis" into the search field, I am looking for a daylily named RAM, not any daylily with those three letters anywhere in the name. RAM finally appears on the tenth page of results. Am I missing something about how to get a DB result that prioritizes with the name asked for? I used no wild card characters, after all.|

I am sure Dave will come along and explain it but the 3 letter names give a lot more possibilities and doesn't narrow it down to the single entry.
In the meantime, bookmark & use this beta search page, I think you will love it. As soon as you type, it starts bringing up different cultivar possibilities, Ram pops right to the top.

|Sue is right, the search engine unfortunately ignores any word that has 3 letters or less, and that's a limitation of the software I'm using to run the search and it can't be changed.|
That beta search Sue linked to is the right place to find cultivars. In time (soon, hopefully) I'll have that out of beta and that page will be prominent and easily accessible, and once that happens the general search will be a feature that is used much less.
