So far, I've got:

Columbine Nora Barlow
Thyme Silver (variegated thyme)
Russian Sage
Black eyed susan
Knautia Red
Blue Flax
Lots of iris
Obedient Plant
Several different cranesbill geraniums
Woodland Phlox
Garden Phlox (several different varieties)
Lots of heirloom tomatoes including Opalka, Rinaldo, Rose Beauty, Fantome du Laos, Sunsugar, Sungold, Ultyonok, Snow white

That's just what I have after my initial pass through. I'll have more when I start potting in full force.

The main things I'm looking for are any unusual rudibeckias or coneflowers or anything with a late june/july bloom time.

This is what I have to start with. Hopefully I will have a few more things if the heat doesn't wipe out everything.

Phlox paniculata (deep rose pink flowers)

Weigela florida (2) rosy red flowers

Petunia exserta (Brazilian Petunias) Grow about 2ft. tall and maybe nearly 2 ft wide ... not your typical hanging basket petunia

Bignonia capreolata (1)(Crossvine)spring blooming cousin of Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans)but not aggressive. Both of Mine has been in the same spots for 4 years.

Cuphea ignea 'David Verty' upright form of Cuphea ignea. will get about 2ft x 2ft. in the ground. It a container it will stay a little smaller

Heuchera sanguinea starter plant (1) Will have red flowers

Agastache rupestris Starter plants (2)

Rosalinda, I'm not sure I like that one. I've never seen it in person (or even heard of it for that matter), but when I googled it, I'm not sure I'd like it. Got anything else that blooms during that time? Anything you can think of that I have that you want?

Also, I happened to come across a few of other plants I'm looking for...

Heuchera Midnight Rose
Mystic Illusion Dahlia
Gaura Siskiyou Pink
Trollius Golden Queen

Ooo..russian sage! I would love some of that!

I just posted in the invites thread, then noticed that little "echanges" link. Oops.

I am looking for Rosa Rugosa. Not too fussy about color (red, pink, white, whatever) but prefer a repeat bloomer. Otherwise, anything with "lake" or other nautical words in the name-I am starting a theme garden (see thread linked below for list of plants I've come up with to look for so far).

anything cottage garden-y or from my list on my theme garden thread

I have (nothing exotic, I'm really just starting a garden back up where one was MANY years ago-we just bought the house this past fall):

Japanese Quince-red (I know everyone here probably knows this but-its has thorns and spreads via root sucker, so plant with that in mind)
glad bulbs I didn't get planted
white wild violet
rose of sharon seedlings (color unknown, these are volunteers from some very old parent plants on our property)
deep purple spiderwort
small green hosta with red in the stems (name unknown)
possibly some large green hosta if I can split them in time
day lily (colors unknown)
poppy seed heads
lily of the valley

Here is a link that might be useful: theme garden plant list thread

Eclectic cottage, I'll set aside a Russian sage for you. I also have an iris called "Dover Beach", I can set that aside for you too.
