WANTED: Desert Willow Seeds

lmieke(NW TN)October 6, 2007

I've started these before but all have died after they get about a foot tall. Don't know what I've done wrong, but I'd like to try again. I live by Bastrop.

Hi Linda,
I just wanted to pop in and say "hi" when I saw your name. I swapped with you long ago at one of our first central texas swaps. It may have been at Zilker park, or another one of our locations. You gave me a citrus that is still doing well. Your name is on it, so I think of you often and have wondered where you ended up. We don't see you at the swaps anymore, so maybe we're too far away. Anyway, I'm glad to know that you're still playing in the dirt ! ;-)

Hey, Patty! After I got in with the Texas Rose Rustlers, I had to cut back on the other swaps, I was going to four meetings a year with them. But didn't I get cuttings of a rose you said was like Eglantine? (among MANY other things) Well, that thing is HUGE!!!!! I love it and took cuttings with me when we moved up to Tennessee. Now I have one in both places. I think it was at one of the San Marcos swaps that I got my first Desert Willow seeds. I gave a bunch of seedlings away after that and I guess I should have kept two for myself. Looks like I can make two swaps here.
See ya!
Linda

new_in_texas, I would love some desert willow seeds and can trade some Mexican bird of paradise (casealpinia gilleisii) seeds. This is a desert plant and has yellow blooms with red (I call them tendrils). Maybe the link below will work to let you see a pic. WELCOME TO TEXAS!! and a long and loving marriage.

I had planted some seeds from "Bubba". Then, was told that they might not come true since Bubba is more than likely a cross. So, I dug them up and gave them away.

So now I'm looking for 8 "Bubba's". I need them for $10 or less. Anyone have any suggestions of where I can get them?

Thanks for any tips you can offer.
