Ian -- A little more information here: In order to refine your search,
they want you to go back to the basic search page. "Gattung" means
"genus"; "Art" means "species", and "Sorte" means "cultivar", as you
undoubtedly know. Under "Art", try aphylla, trojana and germanica.
You'll find some cultivars listed under aphylla and germanica -- none
under trojana. Apparently, it all depends on what they've put in their
database. You'll have to stick with the scientific nomenclature. "Tall
bearded" won't work.
