This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Some more plants fixed up and made available for Build/Buy.

Update 2014-12-09: Edited the catalogue tagging some more so that the flower shrubs now show up with the other flowers (not at the end of the section), everything has proper tags for being an outdoor plant, and sims will get their §§§ back when these are sold.

This is done by setting Unknown3 to 0x80, Unknown4 to 0x022B (trees), 0x022C (shrubs), 0x022D (flowers), the Build/Buy flag to 0x01, and adjusting the price as desired. Included in the zip are:

  1. Wetland Cypress: mesh is very similar to Graveyard Cypress, but the texture is much better IMO; it also fades differently. This is sorted in the Graveyard Cypress thumbnail, colour flag added, STBL edited.
  2. Gathering of Shrubs: STBL added, sorted in Shrubs.
  3. Flower shrubs: Seven shrubs made buyable, STBL added/edited (the large Hydrangea/Azalea now use the texts of the smaller ones already in game, everything else is called "Flowery Shrub" except for the Hedge of Blue Flowers which already had a name/desc), changed footprint of the mid-sized white one, added colour flags on all. Hydrangea, Azalea, and the 170§ one look very much like their counterparts already in game but they have different meshes/sizes/footprints so I left them in. The white 50§ shrub also has an edited texture; I changed that after taking most of the pics – screenshot 7 shows the current state (this is the one in the middle; left/right are vanilla ones). All are sorted in Flowers.
  4. Fireflag: colour flag and STBL added, sorted in Flowers.

The second zip is a catalogue recategorisation for the in-game Hydrangea and Azalea so that they also show in Flowers, not shrubs.

This one, under the new patch, interferes with harvesting in Scumbo's "Evolve all" Just and FYI on your behalf. Have not tried it alone, because I test all most all your plants, clutter, shelving, cpu-hair, notebook, dresser, base game visible pole, when I found it was something in one of you collection causing the issue.
I did not check these other liberated items as I do not use,Liberated Rocks I and 2 & Liberated Shrub and grasses.

You say you tried fixing the game before reading mods, did you try harvesting with no mods at all after the fix? That would indicate whether it's the base game or something else getting in the way. The actions getting dropped out of the queue sounds like a bad mod, but could be the base game. I had one mod that was causing pathing problems that caused issues with other mods, but don't remember which one it was Sorry.

ME: I almost have it down. I know it is one of PB, something either clutter associated, or liberated or plant. Will slowly add those items to see which one is preventing harvest. The Cool thing was that when you hit "Evolve" there was a bright flash and all the plants evolved that were Evolvable. Could do every and anything plant wise except harvest. Will let you both know when I find it encase others have same issue, you can ask if they have said item in game. (Well once I locate it. LOL)

plasticbox: items Eliminated thus far:
All the cuhairs, shelf-raw and towel rack, wall mounted dresser collection, notebook, and the window -octopane.

Still need to test everything else. Clutter associated.

Love all your stuf.

Scumbumbo has updated all of his mods (sometimes more than once I think), so I'd try redownloading those. These aren't garden plants so I don't know how they could interfere.
