Plant Finder Features In Garden Catalogs

While it's been some time since I've mail ordered plants, I still use Bluestone Perennial's 'Plant Finder' feature. If you haven't heard of such a thing, the way it works is you enter stuff like soil type, gardening zone sun/shade requirements, plant height, bloom color, press search and it gives you options, lots of options. The only problem is, of course, the options offered are plants in that site's inventory. I'd like to branch out a bit, but, frankly, I don't see a lot of other businesses with this fantastic feature. Do you know of any? Today I did see that Digging Dog Nursery has a similar feature, but mostly without photos of the plants, which means a bit more leg work.
