I find the Wiki invaluable, however so often obvious information is left
out, such as the winter minimum temperature of a location.
Often I look up plants on the Wiki and great! I see what it looks like and
a snapshot of its habitat - and that it flowers in March. One picture might
be from California and the other from South Africa. What part of the world
is the March flowering in???
I then have to research its native location to find out if and when it has
a wet/ dry season or recieves frost. This has helped me  understand
different climates, which I am glad of, but is very time consuming when I
am trying to get some seeds sown and have a busy day.
A note in the listing of each species, of known seasonal  maximum and
minimum temperatures  and wet dry periods, (not just the month), or a US
designated climate zone, would be very helpfull.
