You know, if you join the JC Raulston Arboretum over by campus (Friends of the Arboretum) you would be able to snag a few of these guys at their numerous plant giveaways. They have lectures throughout the year with about a dozen plants handed out as door prizes at the end and a huge give away in the fall where you can haul out all that you can carry. They have in their collection just about everything on your list.

I have some Florida azalea and sourwood seedlings -- they probably can't go into the ground until next year though, they are tiny. I have a spare Prairie rose seedling (also small), and will probably have rooted cuttings of swamp rose this fall as well. I am going to try to root some winterberry, beautyberry and blue mist shrub so there will be extras. I dug a sucker of a Carolina rose -- if that doesn't work I'm going to try to grow more from seed, if this drought doesn't keep the hips from maturing.

Alicia, will you be bringing any Florida azalea seedlings to the fall swap? I'd love to put my name on one for a swap to be determined later, if you're at all interested.

Yes, I can bring some to the swap. They need to go ahead and grow though, they're small!
