WANTED: Info on what to bring to swap

spring_chickenAugust 23, 2006

I have some plants potted up, like some mint, yellow daylilies, and grasses. But the desireable plants are mainly things that I rooted under mist this summer. Would people be interested in things that are still "babies"? I have things like unidentified honeysuckles, rosemary, and fuschias, as well as some small roses named and not. I wouldn't bring it unless it had a good root system, but are these cosidered tradeable? If anyone is interested in anything, I want just about anything that is not invasive. I especially want edibles, natives, and groundcovers.

Hello Spring chicken,
What color are your unidentified honeysuckles? Are your fuschias hardy? I have native strawberries, false lily of the valley, and a nice spring beauty with pink flowers, all native. Look at my post for sept. trade and my list for other choices. So, yes, I'm interested, even it they are babies. Just let me know what I need to do to take care of them.

Hi Spring chicken, yes those are very tradeable. I am bringing some seedlings also. I would be interested in one of your rosemarys, a fuchsia(if it is hardy), and one of your honeysuckles(if it is a vine and not Hall's). You can take a look on my trade list and see if there is anything you would like. LMK Karen

The honeysuckle is a vine that looks like Harlequin Honeysuckle. I hesitate to make definate trades beforehand, as I have only a few of each, and I would hate to have one not make it. Last year I went away for a few days, and it was the hottest few days that summer that the weatherman didn't see coming. You know what I came back to.

The fuchsias are hardy. They are pink and purple. Both have the same flowers, but one grows to 6 feet tall and doesn't die back to the ground at the coast, while the other is about 3 feet tall and dies back to the ground inland. They may be the same cultivar, with just enough hardiness to make it on the coast. I know that both are more than 30 year old plants. One may be much more that that.

Here is a photo of the grass, it is usually more upright, but the last bout of heavy rain knocked it down.

I also have 2 of this rose. Don't let it's cute little bloom fool you, it gets 6' tall. It's a constant bloomer that needs no spray.

I also have 2 each of roses Mutablis, and Slater's Crimson China, and one Quatre Saison Blanc Mousseau

I would be interested in your roses, and possibly the fuchsia. I can offer you an assortment of natives, including ferns, a fringecup which can spread to form a groundcover, and salal and oregon grape.

Ruth, I need more Salal and Oregon Grape, and I love all ferns. I am not picky, so whatever you have the most of.

albabela, I need Wooly Thyme!

Flowerfan2, if I have anything you want, I want Jasminum officinale.

Everyone else, I will see you there with everything I have.
I do have tons of that grass, Siberian Iris, and yellow Daylilies

Hi Spring chicken, sure I would be happy to bring you the Jasmine in exchange for the honeysuckle vine. Thanks! Karen

Treepalm - the Siberian Iris are the standard purple ones. As for what you could bring for those....suprise me. As long as it is not invasive. I like suprises. I have so many of them in my yard, it was all I had pretty much when I bought, that I was thinking of pulling out a clump to give away.

Flowerfa2 - Honeysuckle for jasmine.... too bad they won't be blooming.

Kellied - It depends, does it get HUGE? Does it smell? If the first answer is yes, I do not have a lot of room, and if it smells nice, then definately. Any idea of it's name?

It was a cutting 3 or 4 years ago and has survived in spite of me so I don't know the ultimate size. Hey, they make pruners for a reason, right? It is an extremely fragrant pink that shows some quartering. Got it in trade so I have no name for it. Please, make this thing happy!

Please, just give it a good home!

I'm leaving right now (6:15am) to make the trade so I won't be able to read a response.
