Aware of the resource, not aware that we might be able to source photos from
it.  I'll be in touch once I've compiled my wish list.

Thanks for the pointer!

David, thanks very much for that list.  I wasn't aware of it.  The reason we
ran with the Mathew "conspectus" was because he's a respected individual,
and he included brief descriptions of each species, which was the thing we
needed most on the wiki.  He also did a very nice job (apparently adapted
from a couple of other authors) of grouping the species into several
categories, which to me was more useful than the actual species names
because it helped me understand the whole genus (as a non-expert, I had been
very confused by the whole thing).

I found a PDF of Mathew's conspectus online, and can point you to it if
you're interested.  Just drop me a note privately.

Another resource I looked at was the new Kew/Mobot Plant List,
http://www.theplantlist.org/ , but it just lists names.  Same thing for the
RHS list.

If anyone wants to go through Plant List, and the RHS list, and add all of
those synonyms to the wiki, I think that would be a worthy project and you
would earn my undying respect.

Jane, I loved your description of the slope with the mixed volunteer bulbs.
I wish I could see it.  Have you posted any pictures of your whole
relocation project?  I've really been enjoying reading about it, and I hope
you'll continue with the updates.
