Hey Red! nice list! Everyone has to start somewhere (last year I had nothing, this year I have some, next year I plan to take over the lawn...... no street.... no THE WORLD! ha ha ha!

I covet your peony and any philodendron most ferociously, hope I will be able to tempt you with some garden basics.

I have:
Outdoor Plants
Yarrow, sort of burgundy red colour (I thought it was Paprika but the colour seems wrong)
Canna Pups, variety of colours as yet unknown (these were started from seeds and tiny rhyzomes last winter)
Autumn Joy Sedum Babies
Forsythia Babies
Kwanso Daylily
Red Hot poker Plant
Silver Lace Vine
Common Japanese honeysukle (warning invasive plant, pleas take appropriate measures to restrain)Smells great, blooms late
Indoor Plants
Golden Pothos
Parlor Palm
Red flower Holiday cactus (flowers between Thanks Giving and Christmas)
Asparagus Fern
Possible some small cuttings of Rubber Plant

Canna (indica)
Castor Beans
Hair Allium
Jackmani Clematis
Amaranths (variety)
Cleome "Queens"
Columbine (mixed colour)
Baptisia both indigo and yellow
A variety of herbs (mostly culinary)
Birdhouse Gourds
Hyacinth Beans (soon)
4 0'clocks broken colour mostly fushia with stripes
Campsis Radicans (I have 2 pods, clean, no evidence of boring insects)

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)
any aster perennial or annual, compact prefered or unusual
dianthus anny perennial
cleome (can always use more spiders)
Cosmos, Tall varieties any colour
Marigold - any french typse
White flowering plants that can take dry heat.

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.
