Hi Darlene, I do have clammy weed. They are small seedlings but do grow fast. I will be glad to pot some up for you. I checked your list. I like Queen Anne's lace or lamb's ear if you have any left.

sylvia - I have some red dragon sedum and one that looks like Sedum reflexum - this one was a volunteer out of the red dragon, so I am not 100% positive of the type. Interested?

sure!
sounds wonderful!

Please let me know what you'd like in return;
(my poor much-thumbed list just shows I'm to bring you some fabulous iris whose name I don't know but it's a huge brilliant purple ruffled thing.)

& I do have more stuff, I've been "potting" today; got some
blue mistflower & a
box elder seedling started, plus some
Paprika (red) yarrow settling in, & I'll be potting up some
orchid-blooming obedient plant tonight or tomorrow.

Barefoot,
I spoke to Lisa my other next door neighbor & she, her freind & her DIL are bringing plants with them. I don't know what they are - she's supposed to be checking in here with her list.
Donna is bringing plants too.

Still not sure if my grands -Melody, Brianna & Jay will be able to make it as they seem to have plans for that day.

You haven't made any requests from me. Is there anything your looking for?

Sylvia, I'd LOVE a fruiting mulberry seedling (do those need 2 to fruit? If so, would you have do for me??). I've got some ghost plant and some succulents in my greenhouse that I'll grab for you if you'd like them... the others are already in Quitman so would have to wait for another week.

THANKS!

Hi Darlene - I meant to tell you that either the St. John's wort or the tansy are fine with me, whichever you have.

Had a scare today - the Avalanche narcissus was hiding from me (again!) - I moved everything and found it - WHEW

Question for those getting water plants - are you bringing containers of water? The small ones I have will be in baggies (duck weed, water lettuce, water hyacinth starts) -but the others will be in communal buckets till you take them out. I can bring newspaper and plastic bags if that's okay...

sylviatexas1

to clarify just in case it's needed:

April's posting the "trade value" is to facilitate a value-for-value trade & to prevent misunderstandings & maybe hurt feelings.

Had she not posted, we'd have had no way to know that the shea butter with aloe vera oil is worth twice as much as the lip balm but half as much as the goat milk lotion,
so a trader would want to offer their bigger or more unusual plants for the more valuable things & their just-as-desireable but maybe smaller things for the less expensive.

barefoot--what would you like for food?
element--I think that I have some black eyed susans (I thought they were yellow, but these are white--you can tell I just started). Do you want some?
sylvia--I have hostas if you still want some
toadlily--the bird of paradise isn't the tropical one is it? if not, do you have a spare cutting?

I have somewhat of a list posted where other people have posted what they're bringing.

I don't have a whole lot (and certainly not many big items). I think that I need to add daylilies to that list.

I'm looking for:
brugs
bleeding hearts
peonies (do they do well here? If not, I may take them off my list)
fushia

anything else is a bonus

Carrie, I do still have plenty of polonasia(clammy weed). The seedlings are several inches tall. Pretty small but they are fast growing.

Toadlily, I will bring you Polonasia, lizard tail and dollar bonnet, Again I am not exactly sure thats the name of it.

I am glad that there are people interested in the polonasia. Although the plant smells yucky if you brush by it, it is a favorite of swallowtail butterflies and the snowberries(clear wing hummingbird moths.)

Alley: the Bird of Paradise is not the houseplant, is hardy, it looks tropical:), its a 5' to 20' sparse tree that blooms crazy orange and yellow blooms on top of mimosa style leaves. Probably kin to a mimosa. Has pea like seed pods. If your interested in cuttings-how about a trade of desert willow (which looks alot like my bird of paradise growth wise), OR butterfly bush, OR balloon flower? (Notice the 'ors' whatever you have)-akas: Pride of Barbados, Red Bird of Paradise, Dwarf Poinciana, Peacock Flower, flamboyan-de-jardin

alley and planopondnut - I'm not picky and I promise no one will go hungry. Water plants would be great and alley if you have enough black eyed susan (only white) that would be good.

dannab - do you have me down for volcano plant?

Also, just found out my sister in law, brother, neice and her two kids will be coming from Oklahoma. They are not bringing many if any plants but are bringing cookies - brownies. They are not expecting to take home a bunch of free plants just want to attend to see how it's done, and if anyone has something to share thats okay but if not that's okay too.

Carrie,

No, I didn't bring any with me. I was so tired of having to tear it out of the flowerbeds that I never wanted to see it again! I had tons of beds at the old house, but only 2 here, so there wouldn't be room for it, anyway.

Brenda--
I have you down for volcano plants, tadpoles, bee balm and I would be glad to bring your family anything they would like off my list if you let me know. I can easily get bee balm, volcano plant, purple iris, reseeding native red salvia and tadpoles!!

Carrie--
I looked at the Lyre leaf sage info but all I could find showed large blue blooms. This came from Lowes and was labeled volcano salvia it has pretty small whiteish pink tube shaped blooms on a tall spike (wish I had a bloom open I could take a picture!) then after the bloom stalks are done it lays down flat and isn't disturbed by being walked on. The plants in the shade are more greenish purple and the ones in full sun are dark purple. I will bring one of each to show and hopefully a bloom. It seems to reseed freely but doesn't spread from the roots. I guess you could consider it invasive!! I am just happy it multiplied so quickly but.......ask me next year I just got it last year!! The way it grows it seems like it would be easy to just cut the bloom stalks before they seeded if you were worried about it going crazy. It is really doing well under my oak leaf hydrangeas and lantana as it is very active early and then just makes a pretty purple carpet under them when then begin to kick in!

Sylvia--
dug up a few evergreen little sprouts of some type to bring this weekend --wisteria sounds great. Pines to come later.

HAVE coral honeysuckle-- I think I forgot to put it on my list, I will go dig from the woods if anybody wants any. Since it seems to raining endlessly here it should be easy to uproot but I may need to borrow the neighbors rowboat!!

You guys are so smart. I don't know the names of many of my plants. I am bringing several plants but I had no idea you guys were exchanging sooo many plants. When Debbie said you guys had lots of plants I had no idea. I think I only have 7 or 8 plant to trade. A friend of mine recently passes away and she had sooo many plants I was going to bring but by the time I got to her house some had died and many were taken. I will try to get the house trees to bring. Those are doing well and are available. I guess my plants will be a surprise sine I don't know what they are called.

Lisa, just take I-30 west past downtown Ft Worth & exit onto University.

The University exit is a little odd in that it's a U-turn.
I-30 goes over University, so the exit is just past University;

You take the exit & it takes you around 180 degrees so that you find yourself facing east at a traffic light.

Turn left, then almost immediately turn right into the park.

Follow the little trail or lane around til you see a bunch of nutty people with plants all over the place!

(& I'm making signs this year, will place them starting at the park entrance).

Deb, I didn't word that well; it's just an obedient plant whose flowers are orchid in color.
I have plenty, will be happy to put your name on a batch.

I potted up some of my black eye susan and they don't look that great at the moment. I'll bring them and see if they make it. If they look too puny, perhaps I'll have something else to trade (barefoot and element)

I guess my email wasn't working very well, so here is my list as I have it at the moment:

Planopondnut-daylilies (for fall aster)

fairysoapgirl-hosta (for coreposis)

element--black eyed susan (I think) for rose if you have one left.

debbiedo7--chinese lanterns, torch lily and hostas (for tag and something else that I don't remember at the moment--I need to stick to one list :)

toadlily--shasta and/or lanterns (don't remember what I said in my email) for bird of paradise cutting.

tina--canna and medalian for brug (and I emailed you about the mock orange)

mommyfox--balloon flower for lantana (my gingers aren't looking good, so I'm holding off on them until possibly the fall)

mikeandbarb-desert willow for salvia (just some small seedlings at this point).
weldon--pomegrante for brugs (I emailed you that one)

sylvia--hostas for blue mist (I thought I read you didn't get them rooted--that's ok if you don't have them) and la iris

dirtmamma--rock rose for turks cap

seamommy--cleomes (they are white I believe) for brug (I don't care about color)

carrie--torch lily for ??

barefoot--black eyed susan (or something else if they get too puny) for food.

I hope I have it all straight.

kay75052(z8, TX, DFW)

debbiedo-this type doesn't require two to produce fruit. I orginallly just bought one and it did just fine fruiting. It took awhile though. I just love the deep burgundy leaves and the beautiful flower show it produces at the beginning of spring. I really don't eat the fruit b/c its very small. If you still want both of them, I will put you down for them. I already have some stellas, so will just have to check with you at the swap.

Carrie - I don't believe it's perilla magilla. I just love the deep purple and green colors on it. I also use it as an herb. It's great for salads, springrolls and curing a common cold. The scent is very strong so it does help to keep away some bugs. If you are still interested I will bring you some.

Barb - I would like to have one of your texas gold columbine for the purple leaf perilla.

Carla - the white rose is more like a sprawler, it will only get about one feet tall and semithornless. I would love to have cutting of your yesterday, today,tomorrow plant.

Darlene - I'm interested in your cannas. PLMK if there is anything you would like from my trade list or my table at the swap.

Attention Debbiedo, Weldon, Planopondnut, Barkingdogwoods and dcarpenter....

I just found out that what I thought was Persian Shield is actually Perilla frutescens. The original seed that I started with was labeled incorrectly. I am sooooo sorry! Now I am feeling even more stressed about the swap!!! First, I am worried that my seedlings are too small and now this. Ugh!

I will competely understand if you don't need/want the perilla and it won't hurt my feelings one bit! I just want everyone to me happy!

Again, my apologies.

Hi Necia - I had persian shield one year and it didn't do well for me. Waaayyy too finicky of a plant for me.
You got me wondering.... So, I looked up the plant that you have.
Actually it sounds a lot easier , than the p. shield.
Here is a pic. if anyone's interested in it.
It is a lovely plant and for full sun, can't beat that!
By the way - If you have enough , can you bring me a few?
I, just love the striking color of them!
I will have several xtra plants at the swap and you can browse- pick something you like. Okay? Let me know.

Necia,
don't fret it's not the first time that happened & won't be the last either. haha
I have sprouts that the paper name label got wet & well I have some guessing to do & so will anyone picking them up from our table.

Cheryl,
If you don't have murphy oil - use lemon dish soap mixed 1 tsp to a gal. Spray on plants wash off the next day - do that for a few days til ya don't see any critters. (this will also kill bees & butterflies so be careful & don't get to soap happy) you can also spray your yard for fleas with this method.

See ya Saturday - TOMORROW - OH MY I GOT WORK TO DO

Y'all got yer "mommies" backerds:

mommyfox is Julie,
seamommy is Cheryl!

I've been clearing out space by the Tradescent (Tradescant?) roses for artemesia or some such;
plopped a bunch of cannas & daylilies in there a number of years ago, thinking "gold goes with burgundy".

Bleah.

I've given *vivid orange* next to burgundy chance after chance to look better, & it just don't work.

+ I thinned the canna indica Indian shot (coral flowers, attractive to hummingbirds),so I have *boxes* of that as well as green-leaved Wyoming (7'tall orange), lemon yellow Conestoga, & then another box of Kwanzo daylilies.

I'll look at any trade at all;
whatever is left over, I'll take to Ovilla next week, & then it's off to my sis-in-law's in the country.

Make me an offer.

(what a rush it is to talk like Donald Trump!)
bwaaaa haaaa haaaaa

I am a pretty new gardener and all my cuttings failed... the only thing I really have to offer is a few "Moon & Stars" watermelon seeds. Should I even bother coming to the swap?

Weldon, I e-mailed you before I saw your post. Thanks! What else can I bring you?

AprilinTx, I would like some of your dames rocket if you have any left. My tradelist is listed under yesterday's posts. Let me know if you see anything you like.

Kay, I have plenty of cannas. Just drop by my table.

Necia, don't worry about it. I would be happy to share my plants with you anyway. I've already got them packed and ready to go. Thanks!

Sylvia,

I would take some more kwanzo's....I will be bringing lots of nursery pots you are welcome to. I also found a ice plant in the greenhouse (we always called them fire and ice) succulent leaves with tiny hot pinkish red blooms. Would you like a pot of it??

rebeccaindfw- I sent you an email....come see me at the swap!

Ooooh, Necia, Perilla - that's even better than Persian Shield - something that's not in the garden centers. SCORE!!! That sounds (and looks) like something I'd really like, so I'm all for this trade. I looked it up, and one of the web sites said, "Rub leaves on your skin and clothes on hikes to repel ticks." I can use that in my 15 acres of woods!!

Kay, I put you down for some Texas gold columbine

Boy, y'all have been busy LOL....I'm tired after all the work I did today and still have to load up my truck.

The best I can hope for is that I've kept everyone straight with who get's what.

I have a list so I should be ok and those that are getting more then 2 plants have their own boxes.

See y'all tomorrow

Thank you, Everyone, for your kind words! I was just a little stressed out earlier. I have all of my plants labeled and boxed up into April's car. Now, it's time for a little Kahulua and Cream!

Tina, I put you down for the last Perilla!

Erin, so glad that you can come! I think that a bag of worms would be really cool. Maybe you can do a little, tiny talk about how to raise them.....! Like Debbie said, just check at my table tomorrow to find something for trade.

Rebecca, thanks for posting your phone number. April and I will be leaving at 8:00 in the morning (right after I stop and buy the donuts! We can never take a road trip without donuts!) Hopefully we won't have any trouble finding our way. Will there be bathrooms at the park?

See you all soon!

Dannab1, I have a few coral vine seeds if you want to try them. I don't know anything about getting them to germinate, I haven't tried them yet. Let me know

Hope

Hope,
I will try the seeds! We had the vine in Austin and it seems like babies came up around it that weren't attached.

CASTINGS--Not sure if anyone will see this but a friend gave me a quart ziploc bag of fresh earthworm castings with lots of eggs. If you are interested in a trade she would like something that attracts butterflies or hummers.

danna, believe me, I have enough Kwanzos to go around!

Tina, I have bunches of coral Indicas (April is taking some, & there are still about a million!)

Rebecca, come on out! I my own personal self have 4 o'clocks, cannas, Kwanzo daylilies...easy stuff that *grows*, & you can take quite a bit home!

ecovert, welcome & thanks for the wonderful article!
I will bring you some lamb's ear; it looks only a little bit depressed, so it's on its way to getting perky (lamb's ear always seems to go into a decline when you move it;
it does recover & grows well.)

sylvia
signing off for the night, I hope!

Hi Erin - glad you're coming! I would love some worms, but I really don't know if I have anything (not already spoken for) that you'd want. Maybe you can stroll down to my table - I'll be the frazzled one with the big dog - and look through my "mis-count" stash!
