WANTED: My roses for your hardy & long-blooming perennials

phylrae(z5a/centralNYS)August 13, 2010

Don't know if this is the right forum to offer this (I mistakenly put it on the other forum)...but my husband and I are wanting to downsize some of our rose collection again (tired of spraying for blackspot!) & want to plant perennials that make good cut flowers in their place (mostly sun in our yard). We live just outside the Syracuse area (Baldwinsville). We want some really colorful, long-bloomers that are a little unusual....NOT your typical Home Depot/Lowes varieties! If you're interested, please email me & tell me what you have. I may or may not be interested (have enough of some perennials already) but please don't be afraid to ask. I am especially wanting the following:

Phlox David/Starfire/Shortwood/Bright Eyes/Blue Paradise

Lilies: Dizzy or Tiger Woods/Black Tie/Rio Negro/Nymph/Luminaries/Quintessence/Pizzazz/Scheherazade/American Spirit and Tangos other than Dot Com

Delphinium grandiflora (short, bushy varieties like Blue Mirror, Blue Butterfly, Summer Nights etc.)

Achillea (yarrow): Paprika, Summer Berries (dark reds) etc, good yellows & oranges

Geranium Rozanne

Persicaria Red Dragon (chevron)

Lobelia Monet Moment

Centaurea montana (mountain bluet) & purple varieties too

Centranthus ruber (red valerian)

Campanula persicifolia (peachleaf bellflower)

Campanula Sarastro

Fritillaria meleagris bulbs

Gaillardia Burgundy/Oranges & Lemons/Tokajer

Rudbeckia Cappuccino/Cherokee Sunset/Solar Eclipse/Maya

Buddleia Lo & Behold Blue Clip or Honeycomb

Ladybells (adenophora)

Hydrangea Pinky Winky

Veronica Goodness Grows/Crater Lake Blue/Sunny Border Blue

Aquilegia(columbine): Hose 'n hose types, Barlow etc....

Roses I have & am sad to say goodbye to:

Well Being
