HAVE: Brandon's Fall 2008 East Tn Plant Swap Items

brandon7 TN_zone(7)August 23, 2008

Until the easttnplantswap.com's swap forum gets up and going, I'm going to post a few of the item's I may bring here. I may post more in a week or so, so check back.


Asclepias syriacus (Broadleaf Butterfly Milkweed) - showy, lovely smelling, invasive-like (it's a native), drought-resistant perennial

Asclepias tuberosa (Orange Butterfly Milkweed) - wonderful, drought-resistant perennial

Asimina triloba (Pawpaw) - native, drought-resistant fruit tree

Baptisia australis (Blue Wild Indigo)

Belamcanda chinensis (Blackberry Lily)

Crocosmia seeds from 'Lucifer'

Cryptomeria japonica (Japanese Cedar) - awe inspiring tree

shrubs and trees:

Callicarpa dichotoma (Japanese Beautyberry) - pretty shrub

Clerodendrum ugandense - Not hardy! Must be given protection for winter!

Ginkgo biloba baby trees (note that these are UNSEXED SEEDLINGS)

Illicium floridanum 'Alba' (White Florida Anise Tree/Shrub)

perennials and succulents:

Aristolochia fimbriata (White Veined Dutchman's Pipe)

Dyckia (unknown species) - not quite hardy succulent

Iris 'Little Red Devil' - This little baby is growing like wildfire for me.

Manfreda (unknown hybrid) - drought-resistant, completely hardy succulent

Opuntia (Prickly Pear Cactus) - completely hardy, nature's version of razor wire

Sedums (multiple types)

Sempervivums (multiple cultivars)

Ooo, I'll take a coupla your Manfreda. Do you know that they're native to cedar glades? :-) I think I have at least one back there already, but I'd love more!

I'll put you down for a pot of them. They're seedling I grew last year, so they won't be very big yet.

It's looking like I won't make it to the plant swap, but I would love to have a dutchman's pipevine if you have any left from the swap. I'm not sure what if anything I'd have to trade you - if you can think of anything let me know. I do have an evergreen tree that Mom bought at beavercreek, and ended up not planting. I need to look around and see if I can find the name of it, or take it back there and get them to ID. When she got it, I'm thinking they said it was from pacific northwest and that it would get really big ... but not in our lifetime. If that'd be of any interest to you, I would definitely pursue getting an ID.

If Brandon doesn't have extra Dutchman's Pipes, I have TONS of seed that I have saved off of mine.

You just gotta come! Can I tempt you with a free Variegated Dutchman's Pipe? (-;
They are little right now, but I'll save you one. If you don't make it to the swap, maybe you can come over to the farm and check out my new flowerbed. When/if the stuff grows, it's packed with neat sun loving stuff.

Are your's Aristolochia fimbriata or another species?

The new swap forum is up and going at www.easttnplantswap.com, so I'm transferring this post there. Check it out if you haven't already!

Mine are Aristolochia fimbriata. As this is one of the smaller pipevines, I grew mine in a hanging basket so that I could enjoy the pipes at eye level. As it should be hardy here, I am pondering where I could plant more in a bed.

I gave Frances a couple of the pipevines the other day. I have three planted in my new flowerbed. They seem very well manored, so I'd think you could always tuck them in somewhere in just about any bed.
