Please take into consideration that all searches are performed with exact term matches. Searching for "Sunflower" will not find "Sunflowers". Adding an asterisk (*) will include all extensions of a word in the search query. "Sun*" will result in "Sun", "Sunflower", "Sunset" etc. (See also "Query syntax".)
