HAVE: Spring plant trade

Marcy72(z7/8 Atlanta GA)April 14, 2006

Hey all, I thought it might be a good idea to start a new post for trades, since the other one is getting kinda lengthy and I'm sure everybody's sick of scrolling down through all the posts.

Anyway, I have 2 boston ivies to trade now, and 2 eucalyptus. We're starting to change out all the plants at work now for summer ones, so I'm sure I'll have lots more in the next few weeks. Oh, and I have a couple of cannas, and some akuba (however you spell that).

am looking for a little germander, and as always am looking for lots of mazus, pachsandra, creeping fig, strawberries, neat shade plants, native azaleas, and good perennials for sun (especially that tall blue veronica). and paving stones for a path.

wenny, i'd love to trade for your japanese anemone, salvia guaranitica, and new dawn rose.

Can't wait to see everyone in two weeks!

hey y'all, HOPING I can make this one...

i have:

Several August Beauty gardenia, small, but solidly rooted from cuttings.

2 flowering plum, about 3 feet high, rooted from cuttings. they bloomed this year.

Rudbeckia, nuff said:)

Pink indian hawthorn seedlings, teensy.

An ice-green sedum I think is probably Pink Chablis, if not it's close.

4 kinds of canna: knee-high yellows with green leaves, 5 foot reds with purple leaves, 2 foot coral with purple leaves, and some Praetoria.

Creeping euonymus, to be dug by request.

Sweet autumn clematis, seedling volunteers and very vigorous.

Dwarf nandina, probably about quart size. 6 or 8 of them.

White flag iris to be dug by request.

2 yearling rose of sharon seedlings, teensy.

Pink oxalis, mondo, liriope, blue spiderwort can be dug by request.

I have a cherokee rose, about a year old, originally rooted from a cutting, now about 3+ feet long and starting new shoots from the base.

Pink african violet and a couple of small citrus plants (no, I have no clue which, but they make pretty houseplants:)

Also I have seeds for 4 o'clocks, zinnias, morning glory and marigold, all mixed colors and quite vigorous.

I have yet to get through all the posts to see what I want, but probably one of everything I haven't got yet:) Especially herbs and antique roses.

this sure sounds like fun if nothing else!

Hi Mairenn. Glad you're gonna' make it! Your list looks wonderful. I would be interested in one of the flowering plum tree seedlings and a sweet autumn clematis if they're still available. Please feel free to check my list near the top of the other swap thread. You can also check out my member page. It's fairly up-to-date.

I'll be out of town until Tuesday if anyone needs to get ahold of me. Thanks! Squirrellypete

hey squirlie, if I can make it you can have those. i also have the blue spiderwort if you want some of that, i have a huge clump.

there were a number of things on your list I really want, but I haven't finished sorting through the 125 previous posts to find out which ones are spoken for:) Black magic elephant ears for sure, and butterfly bush are my top two, forsythia next, and the verbenas and Mainacht salvia.

should I make a list of the things i'd be willing to do cuttings of, as well?

I would be interested in your ice-green sedum or Pink Chablis sedum & the japanese mondo. I have hymenocallis, creeping thyme, tulbaghia.

I need the mondo to cover a slope in my back yard that goes from sun to shade. I want a uniform groundcover under the shrubs that are planted there. Then I don't have to use pinestraw all the time which is expensive in that area.... plus green is a nice backdrop. This stuff just looks neater than lioripe!!

Please let me know if that is a good trade for you.

EVERYONE! We need to hear feedback from each other if you want us to bring stuff to the trade! I have offered things to people, and not have not heard a yes or no from them. If I don't hear from you I assume you aren't interested and I won't be bringing it. That could be a bummer for you if you want it!!!

kay. The sedum I have already rooted is a small one, but I can dig or cut a bigger one. I have to move the mother plant anyway. I will bring all the mondo grass I can spare, probably not enough to cover your slope but enough to get it started.

definitely the creeping thyme, society garlic and hymenocallis. one small each would probably be a fair trade. depends on how much mondo i end digging up.

mairenn, the small sedum is just fine. That's no problem. It will be a nice size by fall so any size is great. I will have the items you wanted for you.

Brad, I don't have as much as I'd hoped to get ready done...there are a few special seeds that have not come up yet, and I need to plant a few others....I do have a pretty hosta for you and I will have many more special hostas in the fall. They are all slowly coming up from seed :)

ooops. nix on the mondo grass. i went back and looked - it's hiding in deep shade behind some shrubs - and it isn't the right kind. it's either the dwarf stuff or a weird liriope. oh well. anything else I got that you want? I can double the sedum offer....

if you have dwarf mondo, I will need more if you want to dig it. I have a fair size area in the "hell strip" around a storm drain, then around the fire hydrant that I can not plant flowering plants. I'd appreciate more of that.

Well, I got back a day early so...

Mairenn --

That would be great! Blue spiderwort would be appreciated as well.

From my list, the black EEs are no longer available unfortunately. I had some extras early on but my Uncle remembered seeing them last year in my garden and would like some for his landscape so I guess family comes first. Wish he was swapping me something for them lol!

I saw your want list and I do have 'Foothill' Creeping Phlox for trade as well as a more magenta variety (don't know the name). I'd also like to add a creeping gardenia cutting to my want list from you if available.

The Butterfly Bushes, Forsythia, Verbena & Mainacht Salvia are all still available. Just LMK which varieties you want or if there's anything else you're interested in.

Thanks! Squirrellypete

squirrelly, one of everything, please:) I can definitely cut you some creeping gardenia, it's trying to creep on to my porch. I just have to cut it before DH can do it:) It roots in water almost immediately if not sooner, so you could probably have one potted up big enough to plant out by this fall. I will also bring the spiderwort.

definitely you can have the plum and the clematis as well. On the butterfly bush, anything except yellow and white, which I don't need. Black Knight first preference. Verbena bright magenta if you have one. I don't know the other varieties by name. I think Marcy said she had some forsythia for me, but I don't know how many of what is reasonable to ask for.

The plum is about 3 feet high, but it has no branches yet, having so recently been a branch itself. the clematis are small, but guaranteed to be big by bloom time, trust me! (its parents are swallowing a fence at the moment:)

ggg, I am currently trying to identify this not-a-real-big-ophiophogon. if it is dwarf mondo, I will bring as much as i can spare. if I can't ID it i'll bring one just so you all can tell me:)

looking forward with glee

you know you might be an idiot when......

so i went and picked some of the maybe-mondo from the back yard, and some definitely-monkey-grass from the front. I do appear in fact to have the mondo. the blades are about half the width and half again the length, and they are much softer and a darker green. I think what had me fooled is that it is busily putting out new growth at the moment, and all the new stuff is vertical and paler green than last year's growth.

so yes, ggg, there will be mondo grass after all. let you know as soon as I know how much, but probly quite a bit. how big is your fair-sized area?

Hi Mairenn. OK, sounds good. I'll have the following for you:

'Black Knight' BB (dark purple)
'Royal Red' BB (not actually red but magenta/purple -- go figure)
'Nanho Blue' BB (also purple but more toward the blue end of the spectrum)
'Ron Deal' Verbena (bright magenta)
'Homestead Purple' Verbena
'Taylortown Red' Verbena (bright red)
'Mainacht/May Night' Salvia
'Foothill' Creeping Phlox
Magenta Creeping Phlox
And bringing you more Forsythia is no problem at all. I have quite a few. They'll be small rooted cuttings but they are well rooted and grow like crazy for me.

The plum, clematis, spiderwort & creeping gardenia cuttings would be excellent. Thanks!

Ok, here is my pitiful little list of what I will be bringing to the trade. Maybe I'll have more in the fall, but I'm really behind on getting my vegetable garden going this spring and have been focussed on that and on several neighborhood issues, so I haven't had time to prepare other plants.

Creeping raspberry - two pots of this.
Creeping veronica 'Georgia blue' probably 3 smallish pots of this.
Some plain old orange daylilies in a 3 gallon pot which ordinarily I would never think of bringing to a plant trade; I just rescued them from a developer but didn't want to put them in my yard; but someone has posted that they or a relative want them.
Chocolate mint - 3 pots of this.
Eucomis or pineapple lily - one or more plant, not sure how many.
A sweet autumn clematis I noticed has resprouted although I thought I had gotten it all out from where it is; I see some people want them so I will dig it up and bring it.

Prearranged trades: Kolkwitzia amabilis or Beautybush for Lindabeth.
Chocolate and pineapple mint and eucomis for Rose Bianco.

Special trade possibility if anyone is interested: I have a muscadine grape vine, the dark purple self-pollinating kind, that I purchased last summer for our community garden for $12 or $15, but then the garden manager decided we didn't have enough room for it. It needs 20 linear feet of space and a 4-foot high trellis. I later joined a second community garden and attempted to plant the muscadine there, but that didn't work out either. I know it doesn't want to live in a pot, which is where it will have to live at my house. Does anyone need or want a muscadine vine and have room for it at their house, or have a community garden that would like to have it? If so, I would be interested in either trading it for something or in donating it to another community garden. Let me know in advance, as I won't bring it April 29 unless I have a definite trade in place.

oh, westender, I didn't even put that muscadine on my list, but it's on my garden site plan. i already even have the site for it, 100+ feet of 4 foot fence....what can I offer you?

also, vroomp, if i have anything you want, i would love to have a passiflora (again, already on site map:) and a Turk's cap.

Have to redo my offerings.

Bignonia Capreolata (2) about ready to bloom or it's seeds
one large creeping rosemary
star Jasmine (2) (from cuttings) or (Seeds()
Ajuga (just digging up)
Butterfly ginger (just pulling it up)
Some white with pink calla lilies (just digging up)
White Balloon flowers small from seed. (3)
Pussy willow (2) should be well rooted by then

Ok I believe that's it.

I'll bring the muscadine for you, then. It sounds like you've got a good home ready for it, and that's what it needs. I'd be happy to get some seeds from you in return: snapdragon, sunflower, and dianthus barbatus, maybe?

Also, in the fall I should have lady banks roses ready for trade. I have both yellow and white ones, I think the whites are the ones that are rooting now but to be honest I'm not sure. I probably should wait until next year when they bloom to make sure what I'm giving away, but if you want both, maybe you wouldn't mind? But I don't think they've got enough root on them right now to move from the large tub I've stuck them in. They'll be better off sitting there through the summer.

I'm also going to try to take cuttings from my alabama crimson honeysuckle this summer, so I might have some of those to give away in the fall as well. Or certainly by next spring.

And I've got lots of yellow louisiana iris that I wish I had time to dig up for you now. But I'll bring it next time, I promise. It's very nice, can get 5 feet tall or even more if it likes the spot and is pretty much evergreen. The flowers are spidery and very nice. They like a moist spot. Have you got one?

Marienn: I can use as much mondo as you have, either dwarf or longer leaf. I have a large slope probably 100' wide by 50' deep...at least. Dwarf mondo I still have a large area!!!

You are asking for plants of Marrien's WANT lists. Check up top for her HAVES list. I can bring you a SMALL number of Spanish Bluebells, and a small number of pink rain lilies. The bluebells, if left in a pot for a few months and let to get bound will very VERY quickly multiply. So leave 'em potted until fall and you'll get loads!!

ggg, you can't have all of it, my husband is planning a black meditation garden. so you can have half, because by the time he gets to it, it will have replaced itself:)

rain lilies....just even one? you can have one of my kids. the oldest one studies botany for fun (at 15) and the younger one (12) likes to dig. and dig. and water. and dig.

westender, you can have said seeds. and I definitely have a moist spot, i have a water meadow down by the creek that stays pretty much flooded for a couple of days after every rain. looking forward to the other items this fall. my oak tree needs climbing roses, and my fence needs kid-friendly climbing roses and honeysuckle:)

oh, and anybody wanting the shortish yellow cannas, holler now, because I just had to dig up a half million or so yesterday, and your holler will mean the difference between putting them in the ground someplace else or putting them in a pot until next weekend. right now they're all piled every which way with enough dirt to keep them from drying out until they get new homes. It's okay though, I don't think you can kill them. they were sneaking under the fence into my neighbor's yard, so they had to come out of there.

Does anyone have any truely red, really red (not orange red, not burgundy) daylilies? I'm STILL working on my red/white/blue garden. I'd love it if the daylily was evergreen. I don't know if there is a red evergreen daylily out there? But I need some mid-season reds. Fall reds I'm good on, but mid season is a toughy!

squirrellypete, after I nearly messed up on the mondo grass, I went back and double-checked a lot of my ID's, and I made another boo-boo. those flowering plums? aren't. Probably pear, Not Otherwise Specified. Still pretty, still prunus:) white early bloom (march 13 or so every year), nice vertical, open habit. NOT bradford. light bright green leaves, very shiny and healthy. good fall color.

however, if you don't want, please say.

sigh. oops. sorry.

I just wanted to let you all know that I won't be able to make the swap. My world has been crazy & stressed. Patsy has been pretty ill and I just put my mother into an assisted living home. As a result my garden has not been even started. All I've got out back is what came up on its own. I have cooked almost all the seedlings I started in December, the greenhouse got up to 128 degrees a couple of times. Looks like no garden this year. I hope to make the swap in the fall.

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

Vroomp I'll take either color Astilbe. What can I bring for you?


I will bring you some iris and some Chicago Royal Daylily also I can see if any of my huecheras can be divided yet, are there any you don't need/want? I would love those things you mentioned in the other thread including the weeping willow.


My neighbor just told me I can take a bunch of his mondo grass, but I ahve no idea what kind it is, definitely mondo not liriope though. Do you want some? Also the chicago Royal Daylily is pretty red, not sure if that would work for you, I can bring you one. I can also bring you one fan of Red Flag Daylily but just one is all I can spare since it is a new aquisition, I haven't even seen it bllom yet, but it is supposed to be a big one. I would love some of your wood poppies and snowdrops if there are any left.

I would LOVE the creeping rosemary if it is still available, what can I bring you?

I think if Danielle's cutting is rooted I will take that instead, thanks though.

Hi Kathy. That all sounds great. Yes, I'd love some extra heucheras too if they can be divided, the variety doesn't matter. I'm trying to spread everything out between my place, my father-in-laws and my mothers lol!

Thanks! Sincerely, Danielle

Marcy and fellow gardners . . . I'm new to GA. Lived in IN for 40+ years. Have had a garden since I was 13. Now, no place for a garden. We moved into a house with NO FLOWERS planted in the yard. We're struggling to find suitable plants. My husband loves flowers, especially plants that flower all season. I'm wondering if you can send me directions to your Plant Swap? What time is it open? I won't have anything to swap but hope to get some ideas of what to plant and where. I'll bring a sketch or pictures of our yard. We have a "hill" behind our house that is erroding down the driveway every time it rains. We especially need help with some ground cover to keep the soil in place. Any suggestions would be great.
Hope to meet some of you on Saturday.
Thanks in advance for your advice!!

Sounds great! How much would you like of each? Since I'm looking for several of each of your other trades, I want to make sure I bring you a good trade amount! Do you have more than one May Night also? If you end up with any extra ones that you don't trade away, I'd be interested in a couple of those too. I have terraces that stretch the width of my yard & try to avoid the 'polka dot' look (you know, 1 plant each). Anyway, let me know how much of each of mine you would like for a good trade. (except the oriental lily, I think that has 3-4 young plants in the pot).

Also add to my Have List:
Black shepherd hooks (with double hooks), brand new with tags still on. Purchased from JoAnn's but never used. If someone wants to make a nice trade for 1 or more, I can bring them to the swap. I'd like something more than cuttings for these. :-)

Hi Diane. One of each of your plants will be just fine. I checked the garden again today and I can bring you:
2 May Night Salvia
1 Taylortown Red Verbena
Several Homestead Purple Verbena
1 Pandora's Box Daylily

I'm going to the AL trade in a few weeks as well so I gotta' save some goodies for those folks too. Otherwise I could probably offer you more but that taylortown red is an excellent grower in full sun. You'll be able to propagate it before you know it and then spread it around your beds -- it roots in about a week!. If I'm able to come to the fall swap I should have more of it to bring you by then.

Thanks! Sincerely, Danielle

Kathy -- I'm embarrassed to say I can't find the rooted willow cutting I planted last week lol. I have to write locations down religiously but I neglected to do that one. It's lost amid the perennial bed somewhere.

If Mairenn's is still available you might want to go ahead and get that one. If I find mine by swap time I'll bring it for you anyway in case you'd like it too.

So sorry bout' that. Sincerely, Danielle

dianega, my gardenia is facing southwest with nearly zero shade and is attempting to take over the front yard.

kathy, you are still welcome to weeping willow. it isn't rooted, but it won't take long. let me know so I can cut it. i thought squirlie's was pussy willow anyway?

anybody else wanting anything off my Have list, top of this thread, and not already spoken for, had better holler, because I'm digging on Friday, and I'm not bringing one of everything....only, probly a million of some things:) Like August Beauty gardenia and yellow Florida canna, because those are already dug and I have no place to put them.

also if anybody has chamomile that would be great.

Far from it, we probably all know how it is trying to fill large areas and make it look more natural with multiples of the same plants instead of that patchwork quilt effect hehe. I only meant I wish I could bring you more -- if it wasn't for the other trade that wouldn't have been a problem. The Taylortown seems to be surprisingly popular with folks.

Don't feel obligated to bring extra plants. Trades don't have to be perfectly even anyway. It's just fun to share anything.

Can't wait to meet ya' and thanks for the trade.

diane, you can have some August Beauty. Don't know my count right off the top of my head, but you can definitely have 3 or 4. They're babies, 6 inches or so, but solid rooted and already trying to bloom.

I'd love to have some of the ice plant and the creeping sedum, and maybe a lamb's ear. what is a persian coneflower? is that centaurea dealbata? (like a purple shaggy thistle-thing?) if so that would be nice too.

kathyga, cool, can I have bluestar creeper? and I have some little blue-purple crocus, maybe tommies (honestly I don't remember) if you'd be willing to trade for the myosotis.

marcy, do you want some dragon wing begonia for your shade garden? i have one bit rooted already. i also have oxalis to spare, pink, and then a dark-leaf one with white blooms.

pins, i have a mum you could have some root divisions of - not hot salsa, I don't think, but peach with darker orange centers. hoping to trade it for a hydrangea and/or italian arum.

farmerpickle, if you are still out there, i have 3 different small to dwarf canna and some sweet autumn clematis. would you be willing to trade for the Paul's Himalayan? if not, maybe the grape hyacinths, lycoris, or alabama crimson?

plants4meuc, I have lunaria seed but not plants, and the ubiquitous sweet autumn clematis. love to have a pussy willow and/or butterfly ginger.

Hey guys! I am still hoping I'm not too late. I've been without an internet connection and was freaking out thinking I was going to have to miss this trade afterall. Please everyone forgive me for jumping in only days before the trade. Can you guys still work with me?

fpickle, it's a go! i think that email went to my old addy before I updated.

all, my 15 year old would like to know if she sends some of her purple-leaf white oxalis, can she have some herbs? perennial would be good, she wants to do a window box. she can't come herself, she has a journalism event. she divided and repotted it herself, I'm so proud:)

heather, would you be willing to trade mahonia, amsonia, obedient plant, ginger, and/or any of your other stuff for any of the following:

Firepower nandina (still small but will get around 3 feet and like full sun - definitely in the red spectrum:) I have several.

Giant purple-leaf canna with red blossoms - heavy clay, full sun, leaves as big as your hand:)

empress tree - either a huge tree with purple flowers, OR you can cut it back every year to make a shrub of your desired height, with leaves as big as your head. which prevents it from seeding, if you are worried about invasive tendencies.

yellow Florida canna - full sun, spreads quickly, about 3 feet high with bright green leaves, will handle any soil you got:)

blue spiderwort..

it's almost saturday, it's almost saturday....(doing happy dance:)

After our plant trade on Saturday I'm planning to keep driving east to Crawford Georgia to the ninth annual Old Timey Seed Swap at Agrarian Connections Farm. I also plan to make a pit stop in Winterville, Georgia at Thyme after Thyme (it's on the way). The seed swap starts at 3 pm and goes until 8 pm and includes a potluck and BBQ (donations needed for the BBQ)as well as music, storytelling, log cabin raising, dancing, and other activities. I've never been to it before but I'm very interested in learning more about the Southern Seed Legacy and meeting some of the people involved in collecting heirloom farm plants and seeds. If anyone would like to ride with me, I'll have room in my car for 1 to 3 people, depending on how many plants y' all force me to take from the Gardenweb plant trade. My plan right now is to take very few. We'd be getting back to Decatur/Atlanta late, maybe not until 11:00. But I think it will be fun, so if anyone else is interested in just making a day of it, let me know.

hdmchandler - would you like to trade for the sea oats? I have Christmas ferns, daylilies, and I could part with an elephant ear.
If anyone has rosemary, I would love to trade.

And...can someone send me directions? I posted on the directions post, but I haven't gotten a response - maybe my email is putting stuff in spam.

I'd be interested in your white phlox if it's mildew resistant... that's why I'm looking for David. No time for spraying with a baby & toddler. Do you have more than one? Also, I'm interested in 4 or 5 impatiens if you have that many. Do you like anything on my list?

Yes, it's centaurea dealbata. I was out looking at it & it's an awfully big clump, so I'll take a division from it if that's ok. And I'll bring some ice plant, sedum & lamb's ear.

BTW, I think the sedum is the same as what I saw at Home Depot yesterday. I didn't have a pencil to write down the name, but it was something unusual like Katschmican... or something like that. Any sedum lovers know which one? Else, I'll bring a pencil on my next HD outing.

Vroomp, did you still have any Black & Blue? I drowned mine last year... but I have a drier spot to try.

Lindagail, did you still have Endless Summer or False Blue Indigo (if it's the dark blue)?

Did anyone winter sow herbs? I forgot to start mine & would love any teeny sprouts you can spare.

EVERYONE: since I am running around Sat. AM before the plant trade (I may not be there until 11:30, sorry in advance for that!!), I need to know all trades to give by Thursday PM since I need to finish all potting up and organizing my boxes to go out on Friday.

Hello all and thanks for working me in so last minute.

I have sent email to the following folks since jumping back in. Some went directly to you and others went through the GardenWeb form thingie...it's the latter I especially want to make sure have gone through.

Squirrellypete, GGG, marcy72, garisha, Kathy_z7, mairenn, dianega, and patienceplus.

Also, in case I forgot to mention, all my stuff for trade is currently in the ground. I usually dig the day before the trade and put the plants directly in those plastic Wal Mart type bags for transporting. Hope that is ok with everyone.

See you all soon.

whoopie, i'd love some turk's cap lilies, hostas if they're not the super-common kind, campanula, bee balm, spiderwort, phlox, cranesbill genaium, and/or any pond plants that would live in shade. (i don't want much, do i?) i can give you a few baby raspberry plants; anything else i have that interests you?

and then, i also have to trade away: several rosemaries that need a bit of tlc; 2 matching palms, maybe 3 feet tall; a few of The Fairy rose; 2 boston ivies; and if there was a very very good trade to be had, a large camellia bush, potted, in maybe a 7- or 10-gallon container, with bright pink flowers in the spring.

All those I'm trading with, your plants will be in boxes with your names on them. Anything I get in trade from you, please ask Marcy where to put it! Hopefully all together in one spot- I know it get busy and crazy!! I will pick up your trades next week sometime.

I'm also bringing for free trade about 15 potted-up Wood Poppies and a box full of loose Creeping Jenny, with some plastic bags- just take what you want- even sprigs w/o roots will grow. Only get 1-2" high and bright yellow in sun.

Have fun- I'll miss ya'll!

I looked up your trade list & am interested in: heliotrope, lemon thyme, petunias (in that order). Want to throw in some of those along with the candy tuft? I can bring the items you requested.

Whoopie, I'm interested in cranesbill geranium & white phlox (is it creeping or tall?). Do you see anything on my list that you'd like?

Heather, I still haven't received an email from you. If you still want to trade, better post it here as I will be digging tomorrow.

Carmen, I would love the Itea cuttings, Annabelle cuttings, snowdrops and Japanese Anemone and I'll bring you the red salvia (but I found the tag it is actually "purple knockout" but the foliage is rather burgandy tinged, rose campion, balloon flowers and some myosotis)

Glynis I will bring you the mondo if I can get ahold of my neighbor tomorrow to let me did it up.

Marien I will bring you bluestar creeper and some myosotis and would love the blue-purple crocus.

Also I posted some of these requests on the old thread after this one had started and never heard replies on some so I am reposting it here--

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." 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.

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 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"

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)

Almost forgot I have some orange trumpet vine seedlings and some kind of cool succulent that is not hardy and I have no idea what it is called. Marcy gave it to me at the fall trade and I have many babies to offer. Marcy do you know what it is called (they were in 2 1 gallon pots)

ack! Westender, I can't find my sunflower seeds. found every other seed i've ever saved, so I can only think....well, I do have a teenage boy in the house.

no, that can't be it, because then I would have found the empty bag crumpled in the corner on the floor:) so who knows.

i could double the dianthus...or?

Marcy72 - both colors coming right up - the rosemary would be appreciated very much. If it's okay, the iris will be bare root, in a bag - that way they won't rot.

Diane, from your list I'd like the 'Big Blue' liriope, as much as you can spare. Just want to verify that this is the one that gets BIGGER than plain ole' liriope, right? The red dianthus would be nice also if still available.

I have you down for 'David' phlox and some impatiens.

Hope you get this in time!

Diane, I just rooted a couple of 'Purity' perennial Candytuft. It's supposed to be evergreen or semi-evergreen. Cuttings are only a couple of inches long but have nice roots. I can bring you one if you'd like.

I have Monkshood if you want some. I haven't dug it out of the ground yet but I can dig out a hunk today and bring it if you still want it. I'd accept a passionflower in exchange. I'll email you directly in case you don't look back before the swap.

Danielle, I'd love some rooted candytuft! Thanks!

Heather, I don't know what size "plain ol' liriope" is... but you can google Big Blue & see if that's the size you want. Let me know soon... I'll check back before digging.

Sorry, Diane,
Endless Summer and baptisia are gone. The baptisia was a medium blue. These winter sow wonderfully. I will save seeds this year and have plenty at the fall trade.

Wildflower and Snoogie, bad news. The Dutchman's Pipe Vine seeds I had saved do not seem to be viable. I had thought the pods were a bit small when the first frost hit them but I left them a little longer to see if they would develope further. All the seeds I have started have failed to sprout and the remaining seeds grew some kind of fungus or mold. I will try my hand at cuttings this year to see if I can propagate them.

GottaHosta, my Spider Lillies have yet to show their faces. Amaryllis are mixed with them and they have come up only in the past week or so and I have the uncanny ability to shear bulbs in half when digging them up unless I know right where they are. I will happily dig you a couple when they show themselves. I travel all around Metro Atlanta in my work so I can deliver to a wide range of areas. See me at the trade.

For everyone else I have your trades ready to go...........

I think!

Nuts, I don't think I will be able to make it tomorrow. I will figure out another way to get the plants to the people who asked for specific things. So sorry.

Diane, yes to the Big Blue.

Snoogie, I would take a Monkshood if you're going to drop stuff off anyway. Otherwise do not sweat it. I have a source I can take cuttings from.

And Kathy, I did locate some of the stuff I had previously said was unavailable. Lucky you.

And Marcy, I will bring the stuff I was supposed to take pics off and you can take it or nix it on the spot. I have no problem paying it forward.
