Judy, I have butterfly vine, will get some going for you.
I have Mexican flame vine too if I can find the end of it!! I think some is rooted around the back.

Jim, lycoris is up so I'll dig them for you. I would like a chalice vine & an eyeball plant. Anything in particular you want from the island, besides lycoris?
I'm going to work on my list this weekend! I swear!

Thanks Jim. I looked it up and found 3 different types. I wonder why they would call this beautiful Allamanda a rubber vine.

Judy, I'll bring you cuttings of the double white brug

Jim, you got the rubber vines, I dug up sprouts throughout the garden, they are looking good so I'm hopeful. It does got dormant though.

Margie-called a rubber vine cause the leaves look like small ones from a rubber tree and it has that white latex sap.

Tally HO!

Hey Jim. I would like to try another white bleeding heart vine and your mystic salvia if you have it. If you don't have the salvia then maybe a Skullcap 'Red Fountain'?

Is this scullcap the same as the pink one except red? I can't find anything on the internet about it.

I have a almond verbena for you. It smells so goooood.

Hi Margie, I didn't grow any 'Mystic Spires Blue' for the swap this fall, but will put your name on a White Bleeding Heart vine and a Skullcap 'Red Fountain'. The Skullcap has a mounding habit. I got it at Maas last spring. The tag says Scutellaria suffrutescens 'Red Fountain'.

That's alright Jim. I didn't get around to taking any cuttings from the one you gave me a couple of swaps ago.

I will bring you your sweet almond for the Skull cap red and bleeding heart vine. Is there anything else you may want?

Hello Everyone,

Just a note to all I made pre trades with. My Apolagies to you. I planned on being at the swap but I thaught it was better to stay home than get out amongst people & spread my bronchitis to everyone. As soon as I get over this I want to get with everyone because I still have all your plants here. Thanks for your patience. Judy
