HAVE: Bamboos for trade

cmontrossMay 28, 2007

I have stabilized divisions of the following varieties available for trade. I am primarily interested in trade for bamboos I don't have, but may consider trades for a few select types of plants like cold hardy palms, cold hardy bananas(no basjoo), named cold hardy taro, cold hardy colored water lilies, lotus, named japanese maples.

Ph. nigra-smalls

Ph. n. henon-mixed sizes

Ph. aureosulcata-mixed sizes

Ph. viridis-med

Ph. aurea- med-lrg

Sasa veitchii-small

Sasa palmata-sm-med

Pl. viridistriatus-very small

Hello. I'm looking for the yellow groove and veitchii boos.
I have a number of pond plants including hardy water lillies.
I have think I have a peach (need to check the name)or possibly arc en ciel (best leaves in a hardy lily). I also have dwarf waterlilies. I also have a large banana tree that did well in our very cold ( for us) winter . We are in So. Cal. inland in a cold spot so we were getting into the teens. I think thats very hardy for a banana. I also have other various dwarf pond plants such as cattail, papyrus and umbrella.
Please let me know what you would like.
Ph. aureosulcata
Sasa veitchii

I have sago palm pups, and an unknown variety of banana that grows to about 14' tall. I am quite sure the banana would make it in your zone. I am between 8b and 9a. The stalks are killed back by frost but they come back bigger every year and multiply. Or check my list. I am also sending you an e-mail. If you try to e-mail me through GW, please post here also. I often do not recieve mail that is sent through GW.

Hi Chris,
We traded back in June. I sent you the sagos, bananas, and cannas. How are they doing? The p.nigra you sent is already sending up new shoots. I have another unidentified banana that grows to about 6' tall. And I have some extra canna "red russian" (second picture). I could use some more of the p. nigra if you are interested.

Hi Chris,
I have Bletilla striata and B. striata 'Alba' to trade (hardy Chinese ground orchids), Fargesia nitida seedlings (2 y.o. seedlings in gallon pots), 3 year old windmill palm seedlings (Trachycarpus fortunei), Gunnera manicata in gallon pots, and probably some other things of interest. I'd like 'boos that would do well in zone 8 Western WA. Suggestions and/or trade?

Would like to acquire some of your bamboo. Please look at my trade list and see if anything I have is of interest to you, I would be most grateful!

I know this is bamboo for bamboo swap, but would you consider a green leaf Japanese maple (great fall colors) or any of the plants listed on the following site? If so, let's make a fair trade. Thank you in advance.
