Jim, are you sure?

So if I want to register a new seed strain of Aquilegia, how do I do so via
Touchwood?  How do I search past registrations for named selections of
Aquilegia canadensis?  etc...

As best I can tell Touchwood just has an amazing collection of cultivars
and species.  They don't seem to be an international society or an official
holder/registrar/recorder of named cultivars.  Or maybe they are and I just
can't find that info on their (massive) website.

I'm accustomed (spoiled??) to using Google for finding websites for plants
that strike my fancy... like:

At this point the question is rhetorical.  I'm just baffled such a site
doesn't exist for Aquilegia.  Touchwood's site does not satisfy my
scientific curiosity about this genus.  Nor does Google.  And that's
annoying for almost 2012.

Sorry - forgive my OT rant.  Time to go study the BX 300 offerings!  Woo
