HAVE: Forbes for grasses

catrinaFebruary 2, 2007

I'm working on a prairie restoration in the front meadow and it seems the forbes are doing better than the grasses. I'm looking for a little bit larger trades here, like maybe baggies full instead of little packets.

I would especially like:

Andropogon gerardii - big blue stem

Andropogon scoparius - little blue stem

Bouteloua curtipendula - sideoats grama

Eragrostis spectabilis - Purple Love Grass

Hordeum jubatum - Squirrel-tail Grass

hystrix patula - Bottlebrush grass

Koeleria cristata - June Grass

Panicum virgatum - switch grass

Sorghastrum nutans - Indiangrass

Sporobolus heterolepis - Prairie dropseed

I have the following forbs in fairly large amounts. We can talk about amounts if you contact me:

Coreopsis tickseed - Coreopsis tinctoria

Butterfly weed - scarlet blood flower - asclepias curassvica z8

Cone flower purple - Echinacea purpurea

Cone flower pale purple (less)

Cone flower yellow - Echinacea paradoxa (less)

Cone flower yellow - Ratibida columnifera

Helianthus strumosus - pale-leaved woodland sunflower , rough-leaved sunflower(I think) '06 '07 hg C 5 ft yellow multi stem. Not really sure, it kind of looks like pictures I've seen of geliopsis helianthoide also.

Ironweed - Vernonia fasciculata

Joe Pye - Eupatorium maculatum

Milkweed - Asclepias syriaca

Rudbeckia triloba - brown eyed susan

Gayfeather - Liatris (smaller amounts of rough blazing star)

I'm also interested in other natives please see my list at http://members.gardenweb.com/members/exch/catrina
