Hi Dessa!

I can bring yarrow summer pastel, triple bloom kwanzo day lilies, broken color iris purple yellow and white bearded,possibly a few different types of sedum, cuttings of variegated porcelain berry vine, a bromeliad, delphinium blue butterflies, lady bells, white lilac, purple lilac...I'm sure there will be more.

Just in case.... I'm on the hunt for white/green variegated iris, mini iris (would love yellow) burgundy bloom iris, pink bloom iris, peach bloom iris, handkercheif bloom iris.
I would love some honeysuckle and the red dogwood tree! Also looking for double fernleaf peony (the one I got from the previous swap is really struggling), and wild flowers cone flowers, black eyed susans, etc.
If anyone happens to have a philo pink princess house plant, I would love some cuttings from that as well. :-)

I look forward to another great swap!
Thanks Dessa!!!!

Blessings, Tina

Oh, I am also in search of some variegated garden phlox, and hardy lavender. Id anyone has any flower pots for houseplants, I could use those as well.

Ok! Look forward to seeing everyone again...this is so fun!
I'll be keeping an eye on this thread as I am so excited about the plant swap. :-)

Blessings, Tina

I will bring larkspur seeds from this year's blooming.
I also have an abundance of pots - what sizes are you looking for? plain or fancy? plastic or clay?

I also have:
 large flowered white shasta daisy (Alaska? but I got it so long ago that I'm not sure.) for sun
 unnamed purple phlox
 some Star Gazer lily bulbs
 achillea 'the pearl' = tall leaning type of plant with lots of little white blossoms in July
 lavender/purple bergamot

 hosta 'Guacamole'
 unnamed hosta, varigated - it's in deep shade and about 3' across and 2.5 ' high, lavender flowers in June & July
 hosta 'Plantaginea' (sp?) - a large green one with big, sweet scented blossoms in August

Looking for white bearded iris and surprises, mostly for shade or part shade.
I could also use a really huge plastic pot - the size that trees come in - for the greenhouse this winter.

I will probably think of some other things later.

may be able to do hosta trades too if anyone is interested.

Guess will have to look and see what all colors i have. my watering bill will be high. Got 1/2 inch yesterday-but was able to dig spuds in the afternoon. Putting more and more mulch and use soakker hoses. Think might hook old sand point and water for free. Also red-stello daylily I'm bringing

Ok, WOW!
I would absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the variegated iris!!!!
Would also love to trade for some of the blue toad lilies, Black Eyed Susans, creeping thyme, cone flowers, the hardy passion vine, star gazer lilies, yellow honeysuckle, and a dogwood. As far as the flower pots go, plastic or clay is fine, also plain or fancy is fine as well. I am not too picky, smiles!

You all are always so very generous! I hope I bring plants and seeds that you will be able to enjoy as well.

Be back soon,
Tina

I will be sure to set the blue butterfly delphinium off to the side for you Dessa

I've never been to a swap. Do we just pot up what we have to share and bring it? My neighbor and gardening pal may be interested in coming too.

I don't have a lot to share yet but have a few things. Purple coneflower, balloonflower, lily of the valley, yellow stella-d-oro daylilies, asiatic lilies in a variety of colors, seeds for yellow centurian (I hope), and globethistle and white malva seeds. May have some pink and red poppy seeds and yellow columbine seeds - if I run out to the garden and collect them now.

I have native daylilies if anyone would like some. I won't dig them unless somebody wants them. I planted them along the fence line they keep the weeds down. I like them, they remind me of when I visited grandma's farm.

See you soon!
