New supply of plants

I got the lot next door. 100x200. The house had burned down. There was about 1000 bushes growing on the back side and poke berries growing everywhere else. I have cleaned it up and planted things all over, it looks a little like a small park. Now that I have got it down to size, new plants are popping up. One place has 4 O'clocks, there is English Ivy, Winter Creeper, Heavenly Bamboo, Cherry Laurel, Roses, I just found two China Berries, Big blue and running Monkey Grass. I have fun just walking around to see what has popped up. If anyone wants any of this, just come get it, or tell me and I will bring to Fall Swap.
I forgot, oak trees, pecan trees, pine trees, cedar trees, moke orange ect.
I am looking for more sedum, shade plants and of course Elep. Ears to fill it up. Bring me some to the Fall Swap.

Tony, that's really cool! The property next to us on one side is abandoned (also burned, beyond repair, in 2011) and we fantasize about even being able to do something, like mow it ourselves, let alone buy it. The dweeb who lived there had debris of all types all over, it will have to be bulldozed before it's ever mowed again. So glad you are able to do something so wonderful with your "next door." Good luck turning that jungle into the beautiful spot you envision, cheering you on!

if you don't get enough EE's @ swap and consider Colocasia esculenta "naked" species worthy of postage, I'd be happy to send some. I've got as-yet-homeless Hydrangea (ground layered) cuttings with roots too. And Gardenia although you mention shade plants. Common but available. I'd love to donate some to your cause if that's stuff that interests you.

Thanks for the offer of plants. I am glad to get the Tea Cup.
It seems that if I think I need anything, it shows up. As of right now, I have lots in pots needing planted. I can always find a place for another Elep. Ear that I don't have or another sedum.
In the area that I just cleaned the underbrush(100x50) is where the plants are showing up. I am digging and potting what I can. If no one wants them, they will be cut.
Purple, the lot on the other side of me is owned by the city. They told me I could use it as I liked. It wouldn't hurt to check on the lot next to you.
I am on my way outside to play some more.

The lot has been abated and the house is due to be torn down. Hoping the date will be in this week's paper. I don't know what will happen with the jungle and junk piles in the back. We've got a front row seat though!
