Has a date been set for my Favorite Plant Swap? I have a bumper crop of blackberry lilies coming up, if anyone should need any.
I don't need any of your blackberry lilies BUT, do you have a list of what you are looking for? Maybe we can do another trade. plantbug
I'll try to get a list together. I'm always looking for unusual plants. What type of plants are you looking for? I saw where you were looking for red canas. I don't have any red ones, but I can bring you a tropicana, green yellow striped leave with a orange flower. Just let me know if that's something you're interested in.
i'm shocked this hasn't taken off and we only have 2 and 1/2 weeks to go! C'mon; let's get some swaps going!
Here's some of what i may bring. Having a plant sale the week before to benefit our community garden, but let me know if you see something you want and i'll set it aside for you. Whatever doesn't sell, i'll bring to the swap.
rudbeckia trilobea (brown eyed susan), common dogwood seedlings, 'country girl' mum (single pink), silver edge mum (yellow button flowers), 'silver king' artemesia, phlox divaricata (woodland phlox), hibiscus coccinea (star of texas hibiscus; large red flowers), verbena bonariensis (verbena on a stick), 'lipstick' salvia, dianthis japonica, campanula 'cherry bells, 'san carlos' salvia, helleborus orientalis (lenten rose), 'marion stewart' abutilon, 'amethystina' tricirtus (speckled toadlily), malvaviscus drummundii (turk's cap hibiscus), carolina jessamine, heliotrope amplexicaule (creeping heliotrope), manettia inflata or cordifolia (firecracker vine), ruellia (mexican petunia), aquilegia canadensis (columbine), amsonia tabernaemontana (blue star), spirea (old fashioned bridal wreath), and some kind of tall bush- not sure- looks a bit like rosemary (that's what the gift giver thought it was)- i'm guessing a yew or some kind, or perhaps a podocarpus. The mother plants' hardy, about 10-12' now, and fairly columnular.
Houseplants; not hardy:
tradescantia zebrinia, (striped purple wandering jew), epidendrobium, (pink- purple small flowered orchid), salvia elegans 'chartruese', 'amethist' passiflora, and cuttings of cuphea ignea (cigar plant), plectranthus (unknown cultivar- pungent scent, small, oak leafed with long arms and dainty lavendar flowers)

hey plantbug- i'll be happy to set aside a tricyrtis or 2 for you. I'd love a lady in red fern. I'll send you an email, too. Thanks!
I have several garlics for trade.
pyong vang (korean)
Several 5 gal container peppers
Naga (extreme hot)
Peter Pepper (red)
Hungarian Wax Yellow
(All are producing, can be cut down for overwintering)
If anyone willing, I would love some blackberry lilies, any shade plants/flowers, and that beatiful purple peacock plant that was at the Spring trade.
I'm not sure what I'm gonna bring. As soon as I see more "Wants" posted I might be able to hone in on something special. I'll be coming more for socializing and bringing something for the general swap. Regarding my wants, I'm going to be looking for any evergreen shrubs anyone might bring.
SWAP SWAP SWAP SWAP SWAPSWAP SWAP SWAP SWAP !!!!!!!!!!
Tammy, I'm interested in your amethystina' tricirtus and epidendrobium. Let me know what you're looking for. I'll try to post my trade list, later today.
Lorabell, I bring you a pot of Blackberry Lillies for Pyong Vang Garlic.The pot that I'm bringing you also has a speckled wandering jew (perennial) in it.
Judy, I'd be happy to set aside an amethystina and epidendrobium for you. the epi is a non hardy orchid; ie houseplant. And you said you had speckled toadlilies, which is what amethystina is, so i want to double ck you still want it. I'd love a 'tropicana' canna for the garner grows garden if you have extra. If not, i'm interested in your variegated fairy bells or black scallop ajuga. Thanks!
Lorabell, I would also like to swap for any of your garlic that you still have available.
I am bringing the following to the swap for distribution. Jewels of Opar, swamp sunflower, yellow-flowered Cannas, Ginger Lilies, Texas Star Hibiscus, Tropical Butterfly weed (must be given winter protection), Salvia coccinea (also needs winter protection, but reseeds), hardy Begonia grandis, a couple of Pink Elephant elephant ears, Spotted Wandering Jew'(Tinantia and Lysimachia 'Persian Chocolate'.
For trading I have available the following hardy salvias: 'Black and Blue', 'Hot Lips' in bloom in gallon pots, 'Red Letter','Senorita Leah', 'Mulberry Jam', S. darcyii, S. koyame(yellow flowers, deep shade) and S. mexicana 'Limelight'. The latter did overwinter this past year but is not usually hardy here. I also have for trade hardy Begonia taipeiensis and a hybrid Begonia 'Cleopatra' that should be grown as a house plant during the winter. I also have available for trade Cannas 'Bengal Tiger' and 'Australia', Amorphophallus bulbifer and A. konjac, American persimmon seedlings, var. Petasites japonica, a gorgeous deep wine red Monarda that has shown no signs of powdery mildew, several kinds of hardy Tradescantia and year old potted Rabbit-eye blueberry sprouts
Tammy, My toad lilies have more of a maroon and white flower. What color are the flowers on your toad lilies? If it's purple, I'd like to have one. I can bring you a tropicana canna. My variegated fairy bells have died back. The black scallop ajuga is gone - died out. I need to remove that from my list. In the past, I had brought black scallop ajuga to the swap. I wander if anyone out there has any for sharing. If so, I'd like to get a plant.
For trades I have:
Arborvitae Fern (3 pots)
Archangel - Lamiastrum Galeobdolon
Artmeisia Oriental Limelight
Campanula - White bells with maroon specs
Chocolate Vine (1 small pot)
Comfrey - Miniature (3 pots - My favorite plant)
Creeping Charlie - green
Geranium Robertianum "Herb Robert"
Japanese Parsley - Altropurpurea - cryptotaenia
Lobelia - Red - Hummingbirds love this plant
Salvia lyrata - Purple Knockoff (3 pots)
St. John's Wort - (1 pot)
I'm looking for unusual plants, callaway ginger, black scallop ajuga and carnivorus plants - pitcher plants.
jdbheartease, sounds great. Thanks so much.
Ralphw, I still have some of each garlic for trade... each bulb has as least 8 good size cloves. Let me know what you could use.
I would love the amorphophallas konjac, and thanks.
I have for special trades ONLY:
Ginger Lily-Hedychium Dr Moy pale orange bloom, var leaf
Ginger Lily-Hedychium coronarium white blooms, green leaf
Musa Basjoo Banana
Windmill Palm, Trachycarpus fortunei
What do you have to trade?
Email me privately, please. plantbug
From your special trades, I am interested in your:'Australia', Amorphophallus bulbifer, and deep wine red Monarda.
Do I have anything you are interested in?
Please email privately. plantbug
I just potted up 2 Euonymus Americanus, aka Hearts A Busting Bushes. Any interest out there?
judy, i wish i could share the ajuga with you but i don't have any. How about instead of the ajuga or fairy bells some of the mini comfrey? You didn't say if you had the canna. If you have something else you'd like to get, i'd love to do a 3 fer, with me getting some chinese foxglove, too. If not, no biggie. My plant's blooms are fairly purple- i'd say somewhere between purple and burgundy. I guess if it's the same as you have it won't be a big deal, right?
Lorabelle, I have set aside an amorphophallus konjac for you. Would you like an a. bulbifer also? Its stem looks a lot like a snake's skin and it makes new plants by forming little bulblets where the leaves branch. I had planned to plant a lot of garlic this fall, so if I have enough that you are interested in I would like a bulb of each. If not, you can choose which variety.
Ralphw, a bulb of each it is. Yes, I would love the bulbifer.
I'll also throw in a few cloves of several other varieties I have in exchange for a plant of your choice if your willing...cuz I love surprises!
And I'm out of garlic for exchange...
Still have a large producing naga pepper plant available, anyone?
Tammy, I can bring you the canna, the chinese foxglove and the miniature comfrey. Let me know if you see anything else you're interested in.
I am going to bring some baby Prunus mume, tiarella crosses, hydrangeas (lacecap and Nikko), variegated creeping Charlie, a couple of redbud tree seedlings, toad lily, baby peanut butter trees. Yes, I know the peanut butter trees can spread, but mine are easy to control with an occasional thinning. The flowers smell so beautiful, and the butterflies and hummingbirds love them. I am ok with having no specials unless there is really something you'd like. I will dig if you have a special request.
brenda_near_eno, I am interested in your tiarella crosses. Do I have anything you are interested in?
Please email privately.
Hey Brenda, I'd love to get a pot of your Variegated Creeping Charlie. Just let me know what you would like for me to bring you.
I have plenty of campanula coming up.. It the white bell with burgundy specs on the inside. I'll pot them up and bring them to the general swap. They bloom in early spring/summer.
OK, I will bring tiarella for Plantbug and creeping charlie for Judy. I'd love some of that campanula.
Brenda, I'll get a special pot of campanula potted up for you. Bells are about 1 1/2" in diameter by 2" in length. Photograph was from this past spring/summer.
Couple more things i'm bringing if they don't sell at our Garner Grows sale this sat (come on out!!) (so ask if you want one) are walking iris, amsonias (lots- like 25), celeste figs, 'sweet' pomegranate, clitoria ternata, and ruellia
Judy, that looks like takesimanna- did you get it from a past swap, perchance? i used to have it but all of mine blooms pink now. I think the punctata 'cherry bells' took over.
Brenda, i'd love some of the variegated creeping charlie. anything on my list you'd like?
Tammy, I got mine from a gardener friend here in Winston-Salem. It spreads like crazy. II think I've brought this plant to the swap before. Do you want pot? If possible, I'd like to get a pot of ruellia from you.
I don't know why that copied 3 times. I apologize.
Tammy, does your Clitoria ternatea have the semi-double blue and white flowers? If so I am interested in getting a couple. I failed to plant seed of mine this year and what I tried to winter-over died.
no, Ralph, it's just the native one- single, lavendar blue flower with a white eye, a bit bigger than a quarter each. It may not be ternata- i was typing from memory and in a big hurry. You're welcome to it, if you'd like- it comes back very reliably and the vine is lacy enough you can let it come up through other stuff with no issues. In my yard it likes the blueberries and the coral honeysuckle. Just let me know.
Judy, i'd be tickled to give you some of the ruellia! Sure, a pot of the campanula is great if you have it potted. If not, let's wait til spring- i'm in no hurry and am not positive i don't still have the white. It's just where i planted the white is almost full shade now so it hardly ever blooms for me. I have lots of trouble telling takesimanna (white, leaves glossy) and punctata (pink, leaves slightly hairier) apart in the ground until they bloom and i'm fairly certain mine crossed. Reason? Pink blooms with glossy foliage like the apparent takis parent. I know it was a seedling b/c it came up 25' from where the 2 parents were planted (they were and are separate). It seems more vigorous even than either parent (which is saying something!) Or, perhaps it's just that i have it in an area that it's more obvious when it gets unruly, LOL. It does bloom fairly well given it's only getting about 3-4 hours of sun, so i'm happy to let it be and root out the extras for y'all. and the foliage is pretty year round.
OK, so I have
Tammy and Judy - creeping Charlie
Plantbug - tiarela
What else I am bringing:
peanut butter tree
rebbud tree seedlings
hydrangeas (Nikko, lacecap)
bougainvillea (lt red, not magenta)
rice paper plant
rice paper plant
I have a big asparagus fern. It has to be taken inside in the cold weather. Anyone interested?
I also have pots if anyone is interested.
Correction, no buddleja suckers to be found.
I do have baskets that I have to find homes for, so I will throw them into swap too.
I would be interested in a Euonymus Americanus, but I don't have anything interesting to trade. Most of my perennial flowers have died in the years of drought. I can bring apple mint, (as well as spearmint and peppermint) lemon balm, irises, and plastic pots and buckets.
Anna, I'll put your name on one of the Euonymus Americanus. I would love some Apple Mint if you have it to spare.
Looking forward to a great plant swap.
Tammy - do you have any figs left?
Judy, could I get one of your white Bellflowers? What I have to trade is in a posting somewhere above.
Brenda, I am always interested in more of your tiarellas if you still have some available.
Tammy, I have the native Clitoria mariana but would like another if you still have any available.
Ok, Ralph, a tiarella for you gladly.
Ralph, I'd be delighted to bring you a bellflower. I'd like to get a pot of your gorgeous wine red Monarda.
Dana, i have one left and it's yours! It's celeste.
Ralph, you are welcome to the clitoria, though i noticed yesterday it was looking unhappy. They have a long tap root and it could be that it's just unhappy in the pot and starting to go dormant. I can collect seed, too if you'd like. I'll also look around and see if there's another i can dig- they pop up all over the place for me and i'm forever digging them and some other pesky but lovely natives out (like carolina jessamine). Too much of a good thing, right?
I'll bring the apple mint.
Thanks Tammy - now what can I bring you? You probably already have most of what I do, but what do you think of this daylily? It's one of a kind (seedling) and I'd love to get some of it in another home in case I lose mine because I'm in love with the color. I've also got some hot pink dianthus that blooms pretty much all summer. It came from the swap so you may already have it. Or if there's something else you think I might have let me know. I wish I had your Delia's purple rose, but I never did pick that one up.
Wow... where has the time gone? Two days til swap and I'm just now posting??
Ralph - I'd LOVE some S. mexicana 'Limelight' if you have any left!
Here's what I have:
Salvia 'Black and Blue'
Several named Hostas
Variegated shade plants
Japanese Forest Grass
Dana - That is a beautifull day lilly. Gorgeous Color.
Tammy - You need Dana's day lilly in your garden.
Does anybody have any of the pale whitish/green daylily that they want to swap?
Thanks for the compliment on my seedling Judy. I don't know if everyone's monitor shows it's true color. I looked at it on my iphone and it didn't look nearly as nice on that screen as it really does. It's a really nice raspberry color. Not a perfect flower as far as daylily breeder standards, but I just love the color.
I've got white daylilies, but I don't know if I can figure out which ones they are now that they're not in bloom. Most of my tags have gotten misplaced or faded beyond reading. I'll check today. If not I can make note when they bloom next year. I've got a bunch more daylilies if someone is looking for something in particular, but only maybe a third of them have intact tags.
I'll be bringing some Kwanso for sure because I had a bed of it that I had to remove and I don't need to replant all of it. I know it's common, but I like it.
I just checked and the only white I can positively id at the moment is 'White Zone'. I believe it's more of a yellow-white than a green-white though. Let me know if you want a piece.
And Tammy I found some nice dark purple daylilies labeled too if you'd be interested in those. Or do you have 'William Guinness' columbine? Saw some of that while I was out too. They're seedlings of my original plant, but I've never had it not come true - yet.
Hey Dana, I would love a white zone day lilly. What would you like for me to bring you?
Judy - It's yours. How about a salvia lyrata 'Purple knockoff" for a trade?
Dana, Perfect - It's already potted up.
See everyone tomorrow.
Dana, i'd love your seedling daylily! Thank you- that's so generous!! That color is so yummy it's making my mouth water. literally- i have a visceral response to some colors. of course, i love the idea of a grape colored one, william guiness or mag pink dianthus too, but i'll wait on those! LOL! See you soon!
