Re: elatior

The AHS database I purchased in Raleigh only contains registered plants.  It
is very well done, but doesn't have some of the key information I as a
hybridizer would like to have.  For instance,  clump size or leaf size or
parentage are not included.  The information given is The registrant, the
year registered, the color of the leaf margin, the color of the leaf center,
flower color, flower color pattern. You can also search the database based
on bloom period, and fragrance.
