Welcome to the new look flower gallery of Blue Wisteria. Hopefully it is now easier to navigate to the flower you are interested in.
There are currently 215 flower species and 17 varieties listed in the database. This is just a base for test and development until all the display characteristics and problems are sorted, and the content management pages are developed.
Features of the new layout will include an advanced search facility where you will be able to no only search for a plant by name, but retrieve a set of flowers matching selected criteria. Now you can find blue flowers, flowers for a shady spot, tall flowers etc. The flower display page now Many more attributes of the species as well as listing varieties separately within the page. As usual, each is accompanied by one or more photos and charts of available colours and flowering times.
While I have taken a considerable amount of time and trouble to make these pages as usable and accessible as possible, I have found it necessary to use client-side scripting in places to reduce the full page refreshes to a minimum. All pages are supposed to still work without scripting but should anyone have a problem please do get in touch so that I can rectify the situation.
Enjoy the flowers.
