Thank you. tina_2

Hi Tina_2
I know you posted this a LONG time ago and had a reply over a month ago BUT ... Do you still have Cannas to offer?

I have plants. I am a few planting zones behind you so my planting material growth will be a little behind what you have in your area.

Just skimming over your list of wants for your trade I would be able to offer Asiatic Lilies, Hosta, Daylily, 'variegated something' (I forget the name of this but will look it up ASAP) or ferns, and who knows what else out there in my 'run away garden'. I started amassing plants a bit over 10 years ago. Than I was diagnosed with a couple of degenerative back conditions and now I am thinning out the plants I love. I can no long weed the massive plantings I put in. I wasn't able to get my Cannas dug a couple of years ago before our zone 5 frost froze them out and I thought I would do without them. I miss them.

Thanks ...
Happy gardening!

RE: HAVE: have ; cannas to trade......

Hi Tina,
If you are still up to trade, I'd love any dwarf ones I don't have, plus "Tropicanna".

I have "Richard Wallace" -yellow with some orange splashes in the center, another yellow with more orange over petals,dwarf yellow with orange splashes, semi-dwarf red ( bought at Park Seed a while back as " The President" which it isnt but is pretty with larger flower heads than usual.
Have a light yellow-ivory, about 3 ft tall.

Hoping to make a trade.
Have pics I can email you.
