HAVE: Books and Cuttings

paintergurlMarch 27, 2006

Hi all,

I'm not new at roses, although my present garden is only a couple of years old. I'd love to trade for cuttings or rooted cuttings...I don't have much to trade at the moment in terms of rooted cuttings (see below), but I can try to root some things for you if you'd like. I also have some non-plant items available for trade. I know it's a little early in the season here in Z5, but I'd like to at least get some trades set up for the warmer months :)

What I have in Trade:

Rose cuttings I'm trying this year (I have about a 50% strike rate):

-John Cabot


-Austrian Copper

-Jacques Cartier

-Mme de la Roche Lambert

-Desiree Parmentier

-Harison's Yellow

-Cardinal de Richlieu

-Tuscany Superb

-Persian Yellow

Other plants available this summer (rooted cuttings):


-nepetea (2 varieties)


-Agastache (several varieties)

-Epiphyllum 'White Splendor'

-Maximillian's Sunflower (divisions avail)

-Caryopteris (Blue Mist Spirea)

-Penstemon x mexicali

-Possibly some babies of Penstemon virens and Penstemon strictus

Books I have to trade:

-Garden Pools and Fountains (Ortho, softcover)

-Landscapiing with Stone (Sunset, softcover)

-Indoor Water Features (Walter Garden Handbooks)

-Bird Gardens (Better Homes and Gardens, softcover)

-Roses love Garlic (Louise Riotte, softcover)

-A Gardener's Directory of Orchids (Rittershausen, softcover)

-Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady (softcover)

-9"x12" Canson Field Sketchbook (brand new, hardcover, spiral binding)

I'm open to almost anything Z5 hardy (especially stripes), but these are the ones that come to mind first...

Wish List:

-Albas - any

-Alain Blanchard


-Centifolias - any

-Comte de Chambord

-Crested Moss

-Indigo (damask)

-Marie Louise

-Rose de Rescht

-Rose du Roi

-Stanwell Perpetual

-Gallicas - almost any and all, specifically:

+Brooks Purple

+Charles de Mills

+Duc de Guiche

+Duchesse de Montebello

+Gloire de France


+La Belle Sultane


+Orpheline de Juliette

+Tricolore de Flandre

-Moss - any

-Rugosas - almost any

I'm also looking for interesting daylilies and bearded iris...

e-mail me if your cuttings root or if you want to trade some cuttings of what you have listed,do you have the actual roses listed in your garden? I have several of the roses you want but I don't have any rooted they would be cuttings...I have other roses too...if it's cuttings I'd rather trade in the fall on hardwood...:-)

I'm still working on rooting cuttings. Yes, these are my roses. I'll repost when cuttings are safe to ship.

BTW, Austrian Copper got nailed by gophers before I could get cuttings, so that one won't be available this year :(
