have: have: hibiscus, hostas, goldenrod, mahonia
I have a very large Hibiscus moscheutos (crimson-eye rose mallow). I grew it from seed in 1997 and it is now about 5' by 5'. Is has outgrown its site and I don't have anywhere to put it so that it can "shine," which it surely does. I have moved it once and it transplanted well. Even though I'm sure the rootball is huge, I believe it could be moved again with success (or divided and moved). Needs full sun. I'm in downtown Raleigh. I can dig when anyone's ready to pick up.
Also have tons of roots of Solidago rugosa (goldenrod 'Fireworks') that I pulled today. They are in holding in moist soil and very hardy. You can't fail with them. Somewhat aggressive-- but for a meadow or wildflower garden, perfect. Plus, not hard to pull up when it starts to wander. These roots will keep for a while. Not enough room to pot them all up now, but if you want to claim some, I'll pot up some up right away.
--Hosta fortunei 'Hyacinthina'. Gets to be very large. Blue-greenish leaves with lavender flowers.
--Mahonia in a 1-gallon pot. It's about 1 foot tall. Just dug.
--6-inch clay pots
--many Nigella seedlings ("love in a mist")
--Siberian iris (purple)
