I wanted to add 'Thyra Viking' to the list of asters. How do I do that? Also, my tag shows a PP number. Should that also be included? It's PP#10,361. Don't know it's importance but the hybridizer may appreciate it.

The PP is a patent number.

You can't add it to an existing entry, but you can add the entry to PlantFiles. It's not yet been added.

Go to Guides and Information in the top tabs
Then go to PlantFiles
Then go to Add a Plant in the secondary toolbar

Here you will fill in the appropriate fields like this:

Common Name: Michaelmas Daisy
Family: Asteraceae
Genus: Symphyotrichum
Species: Leave blank, as this appears to be a hybrid
Cultivar Name: Thyra Viking

Click on Submit, and then go back to the entry and from there you can fill in the rest of the details.

Here's a pretty good site that has accurate information for filling in the details like height, color etc.

If you need any help, feel free to post here and we'd be happy to help.

Thank you, Joan. I'll follow your instructions, and bookmark for future reference too.
