Well Theresa, you can do a search for certain plants, either through plant
databases, or even on Google. I am always scouring daylily and iris catalogs
in particular, as they have thousands of registered cultivars. In fact, I just
googled for irises and daylilies named Hannah, and found several. Be
careful, it can get addictive!
