Anybody interested in Alamo vine seedlings (Austin area)

blue_turtleNovember 11, 2011

Four years ago I finally got my hands on Alamo vine, which is our native perenial morning glory. Despite the fact it is a morning glory, it doesn't seem to be aggressive or invasive. I saw it first in a few older gardens downtown, where it was well-behaved, and its been just as well-behaved in my garden.

It also sailed through this year's drought even though it's on a west-facing fence. It didn't bloom much this year, but I am not going to hold that against it - I was just impressed it was healthy and happy!

I have some seedlings I need to pot up, maybe 5 or 6? and am wondering if anybody would be interested?

here's more info:

I would love one, but I don't think I can make it to Austin in the near future. Would you be willing to mail one? PM me if you are and we can figure it out.

Or maybe someone from Houston who's picking one up can snag one for me in exchange for lunch?

I live in Austin, near Braker and 35. Trying to get some life into my not so live yard. Would be great to have one of your little gifts. Not sure how to send a private message on this forum, so please let me know how to make contact.

Thank You,

Brian

Well, I've tried a couple of times to tell Gardenweb to send me emails, and it keeps reverting to unchecked.

So please email me at calamitycrow at gmail dot com

sigh. **goes to kick the system some more**

Okay, so I just unearthed a PM you sent me that my inbox sent straight to junk mail (I can't seem to get it to stop doing that...). I responded to your email. Sorry it's so late, I blame technology!
