Plant is a Callisia but would appreciate help with the name of the flimsy nodal structures. Thanks. Yale

If you mean the silky white fluffy areas, those are the stigma of pistillate (female) flowers.

Thank you very much as this did not occur to me. I had assumed that the prominent flowers they produce regularly with stamens were the only flowers produced. The plant shown must be Callisia repens(?).

On another subject, I checked your Garden Web page, and want to check to see if you are interested in a trade. I might have a few seeds for you, and some Sedum (although all are grown inside, so no idea about cold tolerance). Have many succulents with the same problem.

Again, many thanks. Yale

RE: Sructure name?

Very likely Callisia repens, but without consulting a Callisia key, I wouldn't say 100%.

Right now I'm not really looking for more seeds. I have racks and racks full of seedlings that I am just barely going to be able to take care of this year. If however you are wanting something from my list, shoot me a message and we'll work something out. I also have a lot of different tree and shrub seeds left over that aren't on my list. I'd have to look to see what might work in your hardiness area though.

RE: Sructure name?

Actually, some of the stuff that was on my list was from last year. I just deleted the stuff I no longer have on my trade list, but didn't have time to add all the new stuff. LMK, if you're interested in tree seeds.
