GIANT SHASTA Daisy Alaska
Autumn Joy Sedum Babies
Forsythia Babies
Kwanso Daylily
Red Hot poker Plant
Silver Lace Vine

A variety of herbs (mostly culinary)

Campsis Radicans (I have 2 pods, clean, no evidence of boring insects)

Wants
Cannas tall, (seeds, seedlings, pups, rhyzomes) any colour
Hosta any
Lantana - prefer hardy types, like yellow and the old fashioned pink/orange/yellow
Nandina nandina nandina (plain old heavenly bamboo, no dwarf, no fancy hybrid)
Seeds
any aster perennial or annual, compact prefered or unusual
dianthus anny perennial
cleome (can always use more spiders)

I can't think of anything else.....

Red best way to launch a naked garden is with some seeds, lots of perennial seed can be started in the fall and flower the following year I will check my seedbox to see what I have for you, SUN or SHADE?

Frances, A friend of mine that lives in Gastonia has Heavenly Bamboo and has taken some cuttings for the Greer Swap. I have Nandina but I know for a fact it isn't Heavenly Bamboo because that is the variety I was looking for and settled for the closest thing to it because I couldn't find it.

I just put in some of that pink/orange/yellow Lantana this year so I have a bunch of babies but I may have some seed some time soon.
