Ordering Flowers by Season (Active Flowers First)

I have a hunch, this topic might be toughed somewhere else, maybe I glanced over it in the Japanese section but I can’t remember and I can’t be bothered translating all the issues. So maybe this is a double-post. I’m sorry.

PLEASE, please, pleeeease order flowers by activity in the month. This month (May 2024) we have following flowers (sorted by occurrence as stated in event mushrooms as gift):

Normal
Lily of the Valley
Carnation
Cattleya
Chrysanthemum
Helleborus
Hyacinth
Sweet pea
Plum Blossom

And here is the list of flowers as in flower buckets and nectar sorting order:

Normal
Carnation (2023-05)
Lily of the Valley (2024-05)
Windflower (2023-03)
Calla Lily (2023-06)
Camelia (2022-01)
Cattleya (2024-01)
Cherry Blossom (2022-03)
Chrysanthemum (2023-11)
Spider Lily (2022-09)
Cosmos (2022-10)
Cyclamen (2022-12)
Dianthus (2023-09)
Gentian (2023-10)
Helleborus (2023-12)
Hibiscus (2023-08)
Hyacinth (2024-03)
Hydrangea (2022-06)
Lily (2022-07)
Daffodil (2023-01)
Baby Blue Eyes (2023-04)
Pansy
Plum Blossom (2022-02, 2023-02, 2024-02)
Frangipani (2023-07)
Poinsettia (2021-12)
Rose (2022-05)
Sunflower (2022-08)
Sweet pea (2024-04)
Tulip (2022-04)

For reference, I added dates (YYYY-MM) of the community day the flower was likely introduced. Bold flowers are active this month. As you can see, they are all over the place and not sorted to the top. They are not even sorted by the time they were added. They are not even sorted alphabetically, at least not in any language I speak.

I understand, this problem is limited to players who play for a long time and collect all flowers. But this is a growing problem since every month a new flower is introduced. Maybe this is a strategy to bore-out long-time players by overwhelming us with too many flowers and make me scroll really down to reach Sweat Peas or Hyacinths.

With every new month or season, the list will be sorted new. There IS a way to sort flowers on the server side. Why can’t we get active flowers on the top?

Unfortunately, this topic has come up many times and there is a current Japanese thread with a link to it. [LINK1][LINK2]

I believe that as of November 2021, when we started the community day and created the flower badges, it was almost a given that there would be an increasing number of flower types each month.

On the other hand, the UI for the ever-increasing selection of flower types has not changed much. The only thing I would judge to have changed is the addition of flower color selection. I am sure many people would like to see a place where it is easy to specify the “flowers blooming this month” that they need this month.

I believe I am judging that "the management team is aware of the problem and intends to improve it, but cannot make any external commitments and the priority is not very high.
For example, there was an announcement that improvements would be made to the problem of “the application running too slow to play comfortably”, but this was at client v67(Relese 2023/04/11). The current client version is v92, but it is not a drastic improvement.

The essence of the problem is that the basic improvement of the application has not yet been completed, and the detailed improvement of the UI has not been completed.
