HAVE: Spring Plant Trade

Marcy72(z7/8 Atlanta GA)January 21, 2006

Hey all, this thread is for everybody who wants to start thinking about the spring trade.

I'm looking for roses (hybrid tea or floribundas, mostly, but also looking hard for knockouts), creeping fig, pachysandra, vietnamese boxwood, clematis, japanese anemone, toad lilies, hellebores, shade-tolerant groundcovers, herbs and veggies, and much more :)

I'm still figuring out what I have for trade, but definitely a few roses, azaleas, nandina, honeysuckle, mondo, etc etc. Will post more as I see what I have.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Marcy, I have four folding chairs that i can bring to the trade. If you need any help let me know.

Wow Danielle that is quite a list. I can't even remember what I have yet. I always find that I am not prepared until like March, you guys are good. I need to get organized I guess. I can't wait for the trade though.

Marcy do you need any ajuga? I have bronze beauty, burgandy glow, and chocolate chip. I also have some golden lysimachia which can take shade but will turn green. I will also try and start some creeping fig for you.

Did you rob a nursery Danielle? What a list!!!

I don't know what all I will be able to bring (if I can attend at all)but, I plan to start some Purple Hyacinth Bean vines, Moon Flowers and Dutchmans Pipe vines(in peat pots for transplanting)this next month. I also have lots more Moon Flower seeds and some more Sago Palm(Cycas revoluta) Seeds to bring. No idea what else I may have by April. Probably more Elephant Ears, Sedum, Salvia guaranitica and if the seeds germinate, Mimosa pudicas (Sensative Plant) which make for an intersting ground cover.

Lol, maybe I did overdo it a little. You guys didn't help my budding addiction any last year either. My mom and I had so much fun last year that we've been planning for this swap ever since. I guess I got a little overzealous with my propagation hobby as you can tell. I may have some other things available after the official spring green-up. This is just the stuff I know is still alive & kickin'.

Pins2006, I'm e-mailing you my daylily list & we can go over the rest of our wants & haves too. I should be able to get you at least one of everything you were interested in.

Ya'll have a good night! Danielle (aka Squirrellypete)

I'll work on my list lot has to do when spring come and check what's coming back :-). As usual I'll be leaving after class ends close to 11 on Saturday. Can you please post the date/time, Where is the swap if that's decided (no need for address just relative where it is in metro area)?

Marcy are you looking for veggies seeds or plants? I should have some seeds.

Danielle, gee you have been waiting for this!
I have some of these:
grape hycianth bulbs
Red Spider Lillies
Bearded Iris
Perennial Salvias Guratica
Dahlias all are named but not labeled (bad me) but I can provide ID once they flower.
and possibly Astilbe pink lightening and White Liatris (if they come back)

Like yours :
Blue False Indigo -- plants
Coneflower 'Double Decker'
Daylily Joan Senior
Daylily Winsome Lady
Is your Hydrangeas Endless Summer lager enought for some cuttings? unrooted ok.

Hi farmerpickle. I would love any or all of those goodies you offered me! Dahlias need not be named either, so don't sweat that. I should be able to get you everything you wanted as well. I can't remember if my Endless Summer was a 1 gal or 3 but either way I should be able to get you at least a couple of cuttings. I'll try and get em' rooted too before the swap if the temperature and nature herself cooperate.

Talk to you later! Sincerely, Danielle

Pins, if I can get to the trade I'd be very interested in your verbena!

I've been looking for those two. I have no idea what I will have for trade. I'm working on LOTS of things. If I can get this heat mat to work, chances are I'd have even more stuff to bring too, if I can make it.

I will definately have some cannas, purple mexican petunias, "Curly" ivy that is much more well behaved than most ivy (great in perennial pots), creeping strawberry begonia, and boltonia asteriodes. Of course, will have MUCH more than that. Lots of seed is in...but that's what I can think of for now.

Danielle, I have MANY MANY things on your list, both in "stock" now and seeded. Please email me and we can discuss!

If the seeds that have already sprouted make it until the end of April I'll have some codonopsis mollis, some codonopsis clemetidea, some unnamed hostas. Needless to say, all of them will be small, but the codonopsis I started last year bloomed the first year, so you might end up with tiny blooming vines. I also have one small start of Himalyan box. If I'm lucky, I'll also have some arisaema seedlings.

GGG, I don't have the verbena - it's on the list of what I want from Danielle. Sorry that I wasn't clear on that.

Sugarhill, your codonopsis both look great. Is there anything on my trade list that you would like in exchange?

hey all :) Sorry for taking awhile to respond to some of you, but some family business had me out of town for a bit.

Anyway, here goes:

squirrelypete, i have several azaleas for trade.... i believe they are all the same kind, with dark-green smallish leaves and smaller deep-pink to red flowers. however, i also have a whole bed of them that might have to be removed because a neighbor took out some trees and removed their shade. i'll be upset if they have to come out but there's nowhere else they could go.... those are larger-leafed and -flowered, i think a light pink.

kathyga, i'd be more than happy to take some creeping fig and ajuga off your hands :) and is lysimachia the same as creeping jenny? ... what might you like in trade?

farmerpickle, i'm looking for veggie and herb plants when possible, or seeds of winter and fall-sown crops. i'd also be very interested in your red spider lilies or grape hyacinth.

jayman, your whole list has me drooling :) but particularly the grayheaded coneflower, purple orchid tree, both agastaches, and african daisy.

pins2006, i have two small, very well-rooted lady banks yellow.

and i've started a lot of seeds... i'm waiting to see what kind of germination i get, but will post as i know. also i have a few variegated agaves to trade, several azaleas as described above, if squirrelypete desn't want them, a young magnolia tree free to anyone with a strong back who cares to dig it out, forsythia, bamboo, and a few geraniums that have flowers almost the color and shape of fuschias... dunno what kind they are, but the flowers are spectacular- we special-ordered them at work for some millionaire who was on a garden tour, but they ran out of room in their greenhouse.

i'm also looking for cinderblocks, landscape timbers, a pond pump, statuary, pavers, railroad ties, growlights, plastic shelving, patio furniture, benches, and particularly flowerpots or planters or half-whiskey barrels. and again, shade plants, like hellebores, toad lilies, japanese anemones, colorful hydrangeas, pachysandra, etc etc.

Hi Marcy. I would love the azaleas you have available. If there are other people out there who want some too then by all means spread the wealth lol. But I can take any extras that aren't claimed. I am sorry about your other azalea bed too. Maybe they will do okay -- some varieties seem to contend well with the sun. If not though I will be glad to give them a new home.

Please LMK if there's anything from my list you'd like in exchange. I may have a few extra clay pots I can bring you. If memory serves they're just plain ordinary clay pots but I'll double check them and they're yours if you want them.

Sincerely, Danielle

Marcy, I should have more shade plants to trade. I've got some for Squirrelypete. I seeded a ton of shade lovers. Cross your fingers!
I am also growing herbs from seed, as usual. Should have annuals and perennials. Some very unusual items you can't buy at most local nurseries.

I'll see wht I can do with the creeping fig (the two I tried to start last fall didn't make it, but I can start some new ones. I can definitely bring some ajuga, and yes lysimachia is creeping jenny/moneywort. Mine is the golden.

Hey Danielle, I definitely have at least 3 azaleas you can have, and we'll see how the other patch does :) I would be very interested in your doubledecker coneflowers (if there's any left), lamb's ear, pink hydrangeas... and is your veronica the blue kind that gets big?

GGG, herbs and shade plants sound heavenly. Also, I'm back in town and have that rose for you whenever it would be convenient to meet up :)

Kathy, I think my emails to you have been going awry. The pinata is yours if you like, but the vielchenblau's promised elsewhere. Dunno why the email's not getting through- sorry!

also, i have 4 mahonias (sp?), and several roses- quite a few of The Fairy, and a few climbing cecile brunners, and a rooted cutting of Anderson, and an unnamed red OGR and an unnamed pink OGR.

i'm still deciding whether to keep the mahonias but it seems quite likely i won't :)

Marcy-- Japanese Honeysuckle is a horribly invasive plant. It is a constant battle to try and keep it from destroying the wooded area behind my house. This is one plant I beg of you not to give to anyone and to try your best to eradicate it from all known locations. It is impossible to keep in check as the birds transport the seeds everywhere. I have had to cut it off so many twisted gnarled trees it is amazing how aggressive it is.

Here is a link that might be useful: Japanese Honeysuckle

Thanks for the warning, kathy :) But this must be a different variety, unless I have the name wrong. It's not a vine at all, but a shrub, which is growing quite docilely in a loose hedge at one of the gazillionaires' properties where i work... has a habit something like forsythia, but more upright. It's got amazing flowers right now, and smells fantastic.

I don't think I will be able to attend a spring plant trade because my wife is due to deliver around the end of April (it's a boy and his name will be Granger). Everyone please check my list and see if we can trade. I'm a few minutes outside of LaGrange, right on the state line. I travel for business from LaGrange to the east metro, to Dawsonville/Gainesville and up to Toccoa/Lavonia so in person trades are okay. (BTW, anyone know what Granger means in french?)

Just FYI I'm back in town so if anyone needs to e-mail me about trades feel free. Marcy, I'll gladly take the three azaleas. And I'm pretty sure I have another Double Decker Coneflower for you. You can definitely have some lambs ear and the Tardiva pink hydrangeas. The mature 'Royal Candles' Veronica I had last year was about 2 feet tall if I remember correctly when in bloom. It is the upright type with bottlebrush-like flower spikes and it is a very dark purple/blue. They bloom for such a long time too.

Just to let everyone know in case they didn't -- the Tardiva pink Hydrangea (at least the one I have) blooms white and then fades to pink as it ages.

Happy trading everyone. Sincerely, Danielle

Danielle, that all sounds wonderful :) I'll take anything you want to get rid of.

congrats to stanreese and pam!

kathy, I'll get the roses potted up and set aside for you. I'll take whichever ajuga you think is pretty, as i don't know the difference. thanks :)

and thanks to kathy for correcting my mistake :) the correct name for what i was talking about is Winter Honeysuckle, not japanese. Here's a review of it I found online:

Winter honeysuckle is a tough, long-lived shrub that blooms in late winter, often bearing ice-covered blooms. Extremely fragrant, often perfuming entire neighborhoods, the flowers are rather small and inconspicuous. The shrub is best used along woodland edges and out of the way corners as it is not attractive enough to be used as a singular speciman planting. The fragrance of the flowers more than compensate for this however, as does its extreme toughness and ability to survive. Evergreen in the South, it is deciduous further north. Often found in old cemeteries and around old home sites. Although it can withstand drought and can be used in xeriscapes, it benefits from feeding and water. Will not tolerate bad drainage and wet feet.
Propagation is by cuttings and divisions.
Height: 8'-10'
Spread: to 8'
Blooms on last year's growth. Prune just after blooming.
In Texas, begins blooming in December and finishes in March-April. I have often brought in branches covered in ice and in full bloom.

I'll have some plastic pots, small seed starting kind to gallon size, 2 or 3 gallon sizes. And these plants so far, links to their pictures are on my trade page.
# Boltonia asteroides 'Snowbank'
# Daylily yellow
# Dayliliy Double Orange
# Tall Breaded Iris
# Star of Betheham

Any one has a small start of the Florida Flame (yellow) Azalea? Or miniature iris?

BTW I have been successfully holding back my urges to buy plant/seeds. So far this year I trully has not spent a penny! That's historical for me!

Hymenocallis: Peruvian Lilies
TB iris: China Dragon which is similar to Firebreather (orange) but blooms slightly earlier.
White perennial candytuft

That's all I could manage so far. More will be listed as time goes along!

Snoogie I would like to have some more Toad Lillies and could use the Stoksia also. I have yet to print a full list as most of my seedlings are small and weak. I lost power to my greenhouse last week while I was out of town and it seems to have taken quite a toll on the smaller seedlings. I will probably have some hosta divisions and plenty of large EEs but am unsure of Dutchmans Pipe Vines now. I also will be starting several large varieties of Mornning Glory, Blood Flower (Asclepias currasavica) and Moon Flower Vines, but it's a bit early yet as they get big fast.

hey, all :)

cath- yes, by all means! and if there's anybody would like to be in charge of the food i'd be very grateful.

bmmalone, i would be interested in a whole lot of mazus if you have it to trade :)

pins- i'm interested in toad lilies and hellebores

snoogie- i'd be interested in toad liles and euphorbia

Gottahosta, i'm pretty sure i have the day before the trade off from work, and even if i don't, you're more than welcome to stop by beforehand and drop off trades, and pick them up later. i know it's not the same, but better than nothing, right? :)

Are your Hymenocalis bulbs tender? - doesn't sound like it if they are still in the ground. And they are not in the Lycoris family, looks like! Any more info on them?

Are you raising any good varieties of tomatoes and green pepper plants in yur green house- I would trade for some of those! And a Moonflower vine or two!

Farmerpickle, do I have anything listed you might like?

Please add transcandia/ blue/ limited white and maroon, to my trade list.

I also have a limited amount of trilliums (white), wild iris (blue) wild geranium (blue-ish pink), and native Jack in the Pulpits, all rescued from my own woods- let me know if interested.

Hey, all

I'm removing my tricyrtis from my trade list.

Chris from Hallson's Nursery got suspicious about consistantly inconsistant markings on the flowers of certain varieties, and then the coloring spread to other plants- sorry, it doesn't kill the plants and not all varieties are victim to it but I can't knowingly spread it to others!!

Hey. I'm not talking much because as usual I just can't be so planned so far in advance. But I will be there, and I will organize the food. Look for a thread about this next month, I guess.

Brenda, I am going to be growing vegetables including Burbank Red Slicing Tomato (certified organic, heirloom). It is a determinate tomato. Let me know if you're interested and are going to be able to do that "before and after" thing and we can trade for any one of your epimediums?

FYI, I am also planning on growing:
organic Corn (Stowell's sweet corn)
bunching onions

Hi all. A little bit of bad news regarding my swaps. I am taking my daylily varieties off my trade list for now because I am concerned many have developed daylily "leaf streak" fungus. Many varieties that looked green and healthy a short time ago are now starting to develope some foliar problems. This does not appear to be daylily rust which is good news. No orange substance is coming off from the underside of the leaf which is apparently the telltale sign of rust.

I am going to begin treatment for this immediately and have e-mailed the two people who I had already agreed to give daylilies to. I am told daylily leafstreak disease is fairly common but I've never noticed it in my garden until now. If anyone has any of their own advice regarding treatment I would appreciate any suggestions. I am still happy to trade with anyone who wants my daylilies but you need to be aware of the problem they are having. I am going to shear back the new growth almost to the crown and then start a spray program. This will set their growth this season back a little but I am hoping any signs of the disease will be gone by trade time.

Please e-mail me with any questions. Sincerely, Danielle

My Spider Lillies are Hymenocallis x festalis (a cross of longipetala and narcissiflora) I believe they used to be called 'Ismene' in some books. They are white, smell great, get about 30" tall with wide strap shaped leaves. Don't require more than 4-5 hours of sun. Mine are on the west northwest exposure of my home and have been in the ground for five years so don't believe tenderness guide. Leaf still looks good long after flower is gone. They bloom late in summer. Need to know more? Here's a link and pic too.

Please-- anyone who may have received a toadlily from me last Fall plant swap, check out Chris' article on Hallson's forum, to see if you may have received an infected variety from me. I did get my infected plants form Chris last year! So sorry, but nobody knew, as you'll see from his article.

When I've looked at the threads about plant swaps I've been interested, but I haven't really had anything to trade. But a couple of weeks ago I discovered the winter sowing forum, and I went a little crazy! If my suff comes up and does as well as the winter sowing forum advertises, I may have some stuff to trade. It will be ordinary, but it will be plants! Would that be ok? Also, do I need to arrange trades in advance, or do I just show up?

Lindagail, I have had some measure of success with the Sago seeds. They take from 3 weeks to 60 days to germinate depending on temp. I gave a couple seedlings away at last trade and I believe GGG got one of them. Perhaps she and whoever got the other one can post how they did after they recieved them. They do not require any particular special attention, just a well draining soil mix and some warmth. Place the bare seeds as they would fall naturally on the ground and cover half way with soil. Soaking in water makes the fruit easier to remove from the seeds. I have about 20 left to give away from my female Sago.

Linda Gail, good trade. I may have some pussy toes to trade. I'm not sure if they are "evergreen" (funny, since they are silver), but if they aren't I need to wait to see if they come up. If they do, I'd like to trade for a creeping gardenia.

Hey Woody, I'm bringing stuff from winter sowing and not arranging trades in advance - mostly there's nothing I want in advance. So I'll have some stuff to swap with you. If your stuff doesn't come up in time, I'll give you some stuff anyway. I sowed way more than I need. The first time I went to the swap I had only one thing to swap. I still had a good time meeting people. Show up.

if i haven't answered anybody's posts addressed to me, please let me know :) i've been spending so much time on my yard lately (the pressure's on now that y'all are coming over!) that i haven't been paying proper attention, and i'm afraid with all the posts i may have missed something.

i have some unidentified climbing roses to trade, and a Belinda. Also Rose of Sharon, and a few Mahonias. I'll have LOTS more stuff and in much greater variety starting in April. Am specially looking for strawberries, evergreen clematis, creeping fig, pachysandra, hardy herbs, blueberries, mazus in quantity, paving stones, stone suitable for the lip of a pond, large flowerpots (esp. glazed ones in blues, greens, white or purples), soaker hoses, tasteful garden sculpture or fountains, benches, hanging lanterns, etc etc. Oh, and hydrangeas (the bigger the better) and anything suitable for a nice shade garden.

Updating list:

Couple of things I'm adding to the list for anyone interested:
Rooted variegated Weigelia cuttings
Variegated Hydrangea cuttings -- just got the plants and plan to take cuttings soon. Hopefully they'll be rooted by trade and if not I can bring unrooted cuttings.
Daylilies (just purchased these so the varieties are uncomfirmed until they actually bloom but the grower told me they are:
Joylene Nicole

Only have 1 or two fans of each of those two daylilies so if interested contact me soon. Some good news is the other daylilies that have been in my garden have responded well to the anti-fungal spraying and I think they will be good to go by trade.

I've been absent, for the most part, from this discussion of items available for the spring trade. I don't seem to have much this year!

However, I do plan to come, and a few things are showing up in pots where I thought had nothing. For instance, the kolkwitzia cuttings, otherwise known as beautybush, that I took last year and thought didn't root, are putting out fresh green leaves right now. But who wanted them? It looks like at least two, maybe three, stems are alive, but I think the safest thing may be to leave them all together in the same pot and give them to the same person. In fact I'd recommend that person (if someone still wants this bush) plant them together and let them grow as a multistemmed bush, which is actually how I think it naturally grows, anyway.

So, if someone particularly wants this plant, please let me know so I can mark it with your name beforehand. Otherwise I'll just bring it for the general trade.

I always love to trade with you, but I have been holding off posting my haves/wants until I have a better idea of how successful my wintersowing will be.

But I'll go ahead and tell you what I am interested in, and then we can figure out what I can bring for you in return. I would like some of your strawberry begonia, some angelina sedum (you gave me some last year; I really like the color of this one), and maybe the "weird" euphorbia (sounds interesting).

I don't know if I have any of your specific wants, but I can always bring you another small hosta, a small fern or something along those lines. I'll post a more complete list of my haves soon.

Judging by the number of posts I've made I think I must be getting greedier lol. Does anyone have an abundance of "Stella De Oro" or "Happy Returns" or any other reliable reblooming daylily that they would like to trade me for? Heck, I'd even love the old orange or yellow ditch lilies too if anyone has extras. Figured if anyone's interested we could either swap at the trade or I could even come to your place one day and do the digging as long as it isn't clear across the state.

My father-in-law asked me to landscape his new house but didn't exactly provide the funds needed to do it all so I'm going to give the barter system a try lol. I was able to purchase some decent shrubs for foundation plantings but it's a large lot that I think could really benefit from a good daylily population even if they aren't the fancy ones.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Sincerely Squirrellypete

No problem Sharon. I'm sure they're pretty whatever they are.

I'm afraid I can't help you with your attic though -- I'm the black sheep (er...squirrel) of the family so the others don't listen to me. They think I'm nuts hehe (Okay, I know that was bad).

I'm looking for few fragrant plants, such as lavender, evening stock, nicotiana, lemon verbena, jasmine etc.

Since my postings are scartered, I'll keep my trade page as the central place for what I have for the swap.

Wenny, I have a lavender in a gallon pot. It's a "regular" lavender (I don't know what kind, but the kind that grows successfully here). You may have it. I cut it all the way back and it is filling out again. Should look pretty good by the time of the plant trade. You can have it.

Well, finally I can say that I will be at the trade for sure. I have been given permission to miss one softball game on Saturday so I will be there. I might even bring something to eat too. Unfortunately Aristolochia seeds (Dutchmans pipe Vine) are taking a while to germinate so they may not be ready in time, but I have more seeds for those who wish to try them. I think only Snoogie and Wildflower wanted them.

Gottahosta, I cannot determine where exactly the Spider Lillies are yet as they are not up yet. As soon as they are up I will happily dig one or two up for you.

Lindagail, I have Sago Seeds for you aplenty. I also have more Hens and Chicks if you need some more. Sure would love those Bluebells you have.

GGG, I still have a Red Banana for you that has wintered in the greenhouse waiting to go home with you since last fall. I will be bringing it along.

SquirrellyPete, I have saved you for last. For you I have Pink Astilbe, some Muscari bulbs, a large antique metal scythe blade and 11 Wrought Iron Compound Fleure-De-Lis Styled inserts that measure approximately 20" by 10". Which just happens to be enough to create a 36" diameter circle around a favorite tree or shrub. If you want all that! All I would like is everything on your list.

Just kidding! That would be too much like work to plant all that. However, I would love to get some hardy Hibiscus if not 'syriacus', some golden Guara and Lilly Bulbs that aren't orange (I have too many of those now).

I plan to bring very little other than seeds for Moon Flower Vine, Purple Hyacinth bean Vine, Blood Flower(Asclepias currasavica)annual here, and a variety of Morning Glory Seeds too. Here's my wimpy list:

2 white Angel Trumpets (from seed in fall)
1 Salvia guaranitica (Black & Blues) a healthy division
2 Sedum makinoi varigata (hardy here to 20º)
4 Sedum makinoi ogon ( killer yellow leaf hardy variety)
6 Sedum Stonecrop (Rampant, hardy, better than grass)
1-100 Bloodflowers (grown from seed if I start any more)
4 EE Possibly a sub-species of Alocasia macrorrhizza (get large to say the least but, seems to be hardy)
1 pot of Creeping Jenny or 10 maybe
4 Purple Hyacinth Bean Vines in 4" pots
4 Bolivian Jews (callisia repens) in 3" pots
4 hardy Amaryllis var. orange Sovereign (straining 2" pots)
and require one more year to mature to bloom
1 EE Colocasia esculenta 'Illustris'

What I want:
Hostas, ferns, hydrangeas (cuttings that have actual roots) and of course My Favorite, Sedum Autumn Joy

I can offer at least one medium sized hosta which would be a division of a hosta Uli gave to me a few years ago. I'm pretty sure it came from Uli and it's Golden Tears. Lime green leaf with golden edge. I bet I have more minis. Some are late coming up.
I also will have LOTS and I mean lots of really gorgeous mini and other hosta in the fall...I started them from seed. Do you need any plain green hosta white white scented flower...siboldiana?

Can't wait for banana...

ALL: I am looking for Mondo grass. Not the dwarf type, and not loriope (Monkey grass, I have that out the wazoo). I need the longer sort of "weeping" Japanese mondo grass, and I need a LOT of it. I'd be happy to trade some goodies with you for the mondo. I have a slope that needs to be covered with the stuff to stop the weeds.
I am getting in more goodies than are just listed on my web page but trying to update as fast as the new stuff is propagated or large enough from seed....

Hi Glynis. I just create another bed around the patio so I'm filling in some fragrant stuff there. Lavender would be great.

Vroom I'll have Sedum Autumn Joy, since you speak up you can have it :-)!

Hi everybody. I was waiting until I knew for sure I could make it to the swap before posting. I hope I'm not too late to get in on some action. I will work on revamping my lists and you guys will hear from me again very soon! I had such fun last time. Looking forward to it again and staying for lunch this time!

I'm getting very close to filling in my shady backyard with stuff. Still need about to fill about 20 spots though. Also, I'm bringing a friend who is starting to do the same. So any part-sun to full shade plants would be appreciated.

To give in trade I have dozens of hellebore seedlings growing around their parents, oakleaf hydragea cuttings (generic, Alice, Snow Queen, and Pee Wee), some blue lacecap hydrangea cuttings, purple hyacinth bean seeds, a few moon vine seeds. A couple of big leaf magnolias saplings. From the mildly invasive list: morning glorybower and japanese bush honeysuckle. Sorry, not able to give as much as I'd like to receive.

Uli, I have the sedum angelina for you. I'll pop in some of my darker sedum today. It should root by the trade, but still be small. It's Vera Jameson.

I know I'm a little late, however, if anyone still has Cast Iron plants, Stella De Oro, plain old green Liriope, and anything sun tolerant..please take pity on me. I am new to gardening so i dont have much to trade. But i do have a fairly new hand saw used only once....i think its called a "bow saw" and some nursery pots...LOL ;-)

Sorry about the late post - I'm heading into finals week - ick!

Plants for trade:

Variegated wormwood (yellow and green) if you want the latin name, I can find the tag.

Christmas ferns - the native variety
Lamb's ears - unknown variety, smaller leaves
Cherokee roses - small (2/3 year) plants
Native Rudbeckia - very drought resistant
White dutch irises - unknown variety
Purple bearded iris - unknown variety
Yellow daylily - unknown variety, looks like a larger version of stella

Tons and tons of 'ditch' daylilies - these I won't bring unless someone specifically asks for them

Sorry about the lack of variety names - most of these plants came with the house.

Wanted plants:
pretty much anything that does well in the sun. No daylilies, though.

Thanks! pp

Hi guys does anyone have a fairy rose that is at least about a 1 gallon size? I moved mine and one died. I am also looking for limelight Hydrangea and a Penny Mac. If so email me and I will see what I may have from your "wishlist" A lot of what I have is stuff I can steal a little of if requested, but I probably won't dig up for the genral trade. I am really unorganized this year so I still don't have much of a list put together, I won't be bringing a whole lot, but that is my focus for this week, getting things potted up to trade. I have my trades on my page, but I will walk the yard today and see what I can add and hopefully update it again tonight. Here are the things I would like that you all have offerred let me know what you would like in return if you have any of this left.

Danielle, is it too late to get one of your 'Tardiva Pink' Hydrangea -- rooted cuttings and a varigated wiegelia? Also is the Walker's Low catmint still available? I have honeycomb butterfly bush I could bring you a couple of cuttings if you tell me what you need exactly, I have never tried rooting one and since we are so close to the trade it would probably be pointless, I will cut them fresh that morning for you. I can also bring you some burgandy bearded iris if you think it won't hurt the clump for me to cut off a section right now, they are still blooming so I don't want to dig up the whole thing.

Pins do you still have any of the variuos rooted hydrangea cuttings? I would love a Penny Mac as I mentioned as well as an Annabelle and if Marcy doesn't have a Tardiva still I would take that as well. Beautyberry would also be wonderful.

Glynis do you still have any of the wierd Euphorbia you mentioned? Also interested in some of the Van Sion Daffs and Santa Barbara Daisy, I can bring you some various camelia cuttings and Becky shasta daisy as well as a baby red tinged hens and chicks.

Linda Gail I have some lemon verbena if you still need it and I think you mentioned hostas, I have some unnamed varigated ones. I would love any of the following that you still have available Spanish bluebells, minature iris, Strawberry Shamrock, Ninebark, Jasmine "winter Beauty"

Farmer Pickle is the Blackberry Lily still available?

Barb still have extra Mazus? I would love what you can spare.

RDhanson-- If they are still available I am interested in magnolia saplings and oakleaf Hydrangea cuttings (any really but specifically Pee Wee)

Hey Kathy. I still have the 'Tardiva' Hydrangea, variegated Weigelia & 'Walker's Low' Catmint for you. I also have a small Weeping Willow cutting that rooted just last week if you want it. The Hydrangea & Weigelia are small but well-rooted from last year. The Walker's Low catmint "cuttings" are easily 1 gallon size now or bigger. I should have probably listed them as plants rather than rooted cuttings lol. I was outside today and just noticed how big they actually were.

I already have some 'Honeycomb' BB but thanks for offering it. As for the Irises I'd love them. I'm no Iris expert though so I don't know how to advise you about dividing them now. I'm probably more brutal on my Irises & daylilies than some folks and will pretty much divide them year-round if the need arises. I don't recall ever losing one but then they're my plants if something goes wrong. I wouldn't want to damage the rest of your clump if this isn't a good time. If anyone else has experience with this please chime in.

I think you traded me some of this last year too, but I'd also be interested in more 'Chicago Royal' daylily if it's still available. I loved the blooms on the one I received last year and I have an area I'm doing in purples so the more the merrier.

Please LMK if there's anything else you'd like. Thanks!
Sincerely, Danielle
