I can't speak for everyone but I would say that a lot of us are in the same predicament, and that if you're pretty sure that it's alive under all those dead leaves, bring it and trade it anyway, because it will come back next spring. After all, it's not like we're paying money for these plants. The whole point is that we're trading for free plants. They don't have to be picture perfect, in my opinion. We all know that most perennials go dormant in the fall or in periods of stress. I think we can deal with it.

I hope you marked them before they went dormant, though!

I, for example can't give you the variegated buttercups this fall as they are dormant. They like moist shade apparently, lol. However, I will make sure you get them in the spring. It happens. Nothing we can control! Just email your people and work it out.

My Colocasias all wilted and looked like caca but, now they have all sprouted new leaves and should look great for trade time. Amazing what a little rain does.

It has been such a bad year that my varigated blue lace cap reverted. I have one stalk of non varigated leafness.
