HAVE: Cleaning out beds....

Hey guys! I went out today and started cleaning out beds, and for the first time ever, I started throwing PLANTS in the compost pile. Then it hit me, you guys might want them. I am looking for someone who would like to have these plants who would come and pick them up. I have lots and lots and lots that need to be cleaned out that you may have. A trade would be nice but not necessary. I am easy to trade with. I usually look for things like craft supplies, school supplies, everyday items that you may have in abundance, etc... Let me know...

Some of the things that went in the compost are:
Pink Beauty Cannas
Pink Hardy Hibiscus
Two types of perenial sunflowers
Three types of Brugmansias
Indian Shot Canna
Garlic chives

I still have among the many:
Cameleon plant
Pink Yarrow
White Butterfly Ginger
Umbrella Palm
Burgundy Hardy Hibiscus
Bridal Wreath Sprirea
Mixed dwarf canna
Yellow Louisiana Iris
Water Celery
False Indigo
Lavender Iris
Colocasia Chicago Harlequin
Colocasia Black Magic
Colocasia Illustris
Colocasia Violet Stemmed
Colocasia Esculenta
Colocasia Unknown
Xanthosoma Sagitifolia
Helens Dianthus
Etc, etc, etc...
Get the picture?

I will be composting throughout the season the above. It has to be cleaned out, and I do not have the time to pot them up. If you would like them and are able to come and pick them up, please let me know.

Also, keep in mind that Fall is the best time of the year to transplant in the south. The Colocasias and lantanas would need to be potted up and kept inside for the winter, but the rest could be planted now and would thrive. Take a look at my trade list and see if we can trade, but like I said, a trade would be nice but not necessary.

I have plenty of liriope that I want to transplant. What is the best time of year to do it? I want to do it now if possible. Also, I see you have vinca. Will it grow in the shade and is it an annual or perennial?
