This is a seed I recently planted, sold as Dimorphotheca aurantiaca. I can't seem to find it in the database. Is there another name for it, or does it need to be added? I got the seeds from Wildseed Farms. https://www.wildseedfarms.com/... Thanks.

It's a synonym for D. tragus.

Zuzu, Shouldn't a search find this as a synonym? I thought maybe I spelled it wrong, but then tried again after pasting from the D. tragus entry. It still didn't come up for me. I only ask to avoid causing you guys extra work finding stuff for me that it seems should show up with my 'by guess and by golly' searches.

A synonym usually would have turned up in a search, but I just added this one to the D. tragus entry before I responded to this thread. The system takes a while to incorporate changes into the search engine, so you probably tried too quickly last time. It comes up now when I search for D. aurantiaca:
