OK ok so I figres since I missed the spring swap I would start this post 2 months early. Remember you can always trade early.

So I have Plenty of Basjoo's so anyone who got one from me last year that didn't make it through the winter be sure and speak up. I also have Musa Velutina Pink and Purple. I have Chinese yellow banana, Saba, Orinoco, Ornata, along with plenty of different types of colocasia (elephant ears). I am always looking for tropical plants so feel free to make an offer.

RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Hey Chris, my Velutina (pink) didn't make it from last year, but not sure what I'll have to offer just yet. I've tried to behave this year with the drought. Is your Orinico the dwarf type? I've read that they do really well.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Rootdigger, great to hear from you again. I wasn't offering Velutina's last year but would be more than happy to trade you one this year. My Orinico's are the full size variety, last year the pop was 13' tall and should be alot taller this year as I stored it in my crawl space over the winter. It has 2 pups currently so find something tropical to trade and your on. I also like hybrid daylilies.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Thanks Chris Once we find something you'd like of mine I'd love both the Velutina and the Orinico. I do have a rooted cutting of Mars Rose brug if you're interested. I'll look tomorrow and see what 'named' daylilies I have.

What kind of elephant ears do you have? I know I have some of the Remusatia vivipara or hitchhiker (they're finally coming up). They're hardy but really struggle some years coming back. They might do better in your area and you can grow new ones from the little hooked bulbils they produce. I also have some Xanthosoma jacquinii lineatum but they still haven't come up. Gorgeous EE's but I winter that one in a pot in the greenhouse or under the house.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Rootdigger What I would really like is Xanthosoma Lindenii Magnificum, Xanthosoma Atrovirens Albo Marginata Monstrom as far as Xanthosoma go.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Chris - does your M. veluntina ever fruit? I really want to grow some from seed.

I need very little in trade but have tons of stuff to find homes for - Tibouchina (big leaved form and the normal); Pondranea (pink flowered trumpet vine, hardy for me in Garner, also called Port St John's Creeper).


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Hey, John- can i get a tibouchina or 2 for the fair plot? They should be blooming by then.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Tammy - I've got plenty of the normal leaved one. They may not be full sized but they should be blooming. I've got a few of the T. grandifolia but they bloom earlier and only bloom once.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Great, John- I like the regular one better for flowers anyhow. I don't care how big they are as long as they bloom come fair time. That purple sizzles!


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

John,

I already have Tibouchina, but if my Velutina gets fruit you are more then welcome to some seeds (it's flowering right now). Just keep me in mind for future considerations.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Topher - I have some Mickey Mouse EE pups / Xanthosoma Atrovirens Albo Marginata Monstrosum (I LOVE these guys) that should be ready for the swap - I'll put your name on some. If you'd rather have it before the swap, just know the pups aren't huge yet. I though I had lost the Basjoo I got from you, but two sprang up in it's place! I am always open to more Mexican Petunia.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

magick,
You sohuld swing by as I would very much like to see the size of your Xanthosoma Atrovirens Albo Marginata Monstrosum. Perhaps there is a different type of Banana I could trade with you. I'll be around this Sunday, feel free to call me during the day 473 0115 or night 854 2666 to set up a time.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sunday works for me. I'll bring the parent plant as well so you can see what it looks like.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Hi Chris, The patio peaches you gave me are thriving! Thanks! I too, would like to have a couple of bananas. I have basjoo and orinoco. So maybe some of the others. I have tons of Hybrid daylilies. Is there anything you're especially interested in or a certain color? If you don't have 'Alna Pride', that's one you really should have. She's gorgeous and increases like crazy. Tall scapes and heavy branching and buds.

John, what else you need a home for?

magick, I would love a Xanthosoma Atrovirens Albo Marginata Monstrosum. I have mexican petunias. mine are just beginning to bloom.

I'm also going to have a ton of stuff that I'm going to have to thin. Especially my daylilies. I'll try to list them for trades this weekend.

Thanks,

Vickie


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Vickie, I do have 'Alna Pride' already, but would definately like to see what else you have (looking forward to seeing the list). Regarding other Bananas do you gave Veluntina or Lasiocarpa?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Vickie - I have one tiny one left - it grew up from some roots that were left behind. I'll warn you it's TINY - but too cute for words, and I'm sure it will grow some before the swap. I'll put your name on it and update you as to the size status closer to the swap.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Chris, I emailed you a list and I checked those daylilies I have 'Jumping Jehoshaphat' and 'Siloam Amazing Grace'..... the others I either can't read the tags or they are gone. A couple of them are hybrids that another gardenwebber crossed themselves. Another no name is a pale yellow with a burgundy eye. I don't do a lot of daylilies, but the ones I have were from people that collect them. I also have some pots of tuberoses that are growing gangbusters and some Princess Lilies. The PL's have wintered in a pot outside with no protection, so I know they are winter hardy.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Rootdigger, I never received your emails I really like hybrids, spiders and doubles. The ones you mention 'Jumping Jehoshaphat' and 'Siloam Amazing Grace' I already have a similar one. What type of Princess lily do you have, I have 2 types but am always looking for more.
my email is csmith@slickedit.com


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

magick,
sounds good. little will grow. especially if I put it in the greenhouse. :-)

Thanks!

Chris,
I still haven't gotten that list together, maybe when it cools off some. NO, I don't have either the Veluntina nor the Lasiocarpa.

Later,
Vickie

RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Hi all!
Are there any rumors of the date of the fall Raleigh swap yet? I'm planning a swap in Charlotte for September and would hate to miss the Raleigh swap if they're on the same day! Is it usually in October? Thanks!

-Elaine


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

usually mid to late september, Lainy.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Swap....swap....swap....swap....Swap....swap....swap....swap....Swap....swap....swap....swap....Swap....swap....swap....swap....SWAP!
Date.....date....date....date.....date.....date?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Have you ever thought you had done something and then realized that you hadn't?? oops. Guess I need to post all the info about the swap, huh!


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

and we REEEEALLY need to get brenda some help..... LOL


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Yep, I need some help. And I'm willing to trade a Rehmannia elata seedling for therapy. This plant is just the cutest sinnigia-like blossom, and reseeds all over in dappled shade, thru dry spells. You want it. I'm rooting up some Fchsia 'Sanihanf' and Salvia 'Maraschino.' What else? I have agastache 'Honeybee Blue', Prunus mume seedlings, and lots of different tiarella seedlings. The Tiarella are crosses between 'Iron Cross' (originally from Reba) and native - I get pretty color combos and leaf shapes, and all look great thru shade and dry clay. (I have baked some to death, but it isn't easy.)


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Brenda, I have some therapy I'm not using and would love to trade for Rehmannia elata. Always in the market for your tiarella seedlings too.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Brenda, can I bargain for one of those Rehmannia seedlings?

I have several hardy red amaryllis, some canna Stuttgart, hardy tapioca, white Texas hibiscus, jewel of opar, and white calla. Surely you need ONE of those! ;-)

Sally


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

I am looking for some echinacea, any color is fine, and some gaillardia as well. I also have an area that has become increasingly shady as some trees have gotten bigger, so some part-sun to shade plants would be great.

As noted above, I have several hardy red amaryllis, some canna Stuttgart, hardy tapioca, white Texas hibiscus, jewel of opar, and white calla.

Sally


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sally, I've been looking for white Texas hibiscus. I probably have some Echinacea purpurea seedlings I can dig up, or I can find something in the shady parts of the garden you might like. I haven't had much time to think about the swap yet, but will go see what's out there next weekend.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

I'm updating my swap list and my want list this evening. I dug out an entire bed and where I thought I might have a few hundred bulbs, I have thousands. However, my daughter's boyfriend was so kind to dig it out for me. Therefore, I have a wheelbarrow load of bulbs, and 3 - 5 gal buckets full. I know what they all are and will try to separate them, but it's bulb time with no cultivar names. I know which are daffodils (mixed cultivars), which are lycoris (all the lycoris are th radiata), I have tons of muscari (all americana - the plain purple), crocus (mixed cultivars), lilies (mixed orientals and asiatics), daylilies (mixed hybrid cultivars - no ditch lilies), etc. So, depending on if Rootdigger wants to ride with me or not, (maybe we can tone down some on the getting and split the gas costs, we can get there - root, maybe we can take Terry's truck, not as comfortable as the car, but easier on gas and more room in the back for plants - email me).
topher, I'll still have some named daylilies for you. Do you have Lee Pickles? Mister Lucky? God is Listening? Laura Harwood? More to list later.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sally, I'll try to get one of my Gaillardia 'Goblin' babies up for you. They don't always make it but the plant is in an awkward place and I keep digging the new ones out(and they keep growing back,lol)


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Vickie,

Lee Pickles, I am not sure I have one that's close, I do have the rest. Lycoris radiata now your talking what type of growing conditions do you find work best for them? Count me in for some. I also love Orientals and Asiatics any idea what types you have.

Hey John do you know when the Arboretum plant giveaway is this year?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sally and Karen, I have you down for Chinese Foxglove, and also Tiarella for Karen. I'd love some white Texas hibiscus, Sally. Vicki, anything you'd like to trade for either some lycoris or muscari?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

topher - I don't think the Arb has had their big giveaway the last two years due to the drought. I could be wrong and just missed it but I remember someone saying something about not being able to propagate too much stuff because last summer they were on strict water restrictions (they are not legally considered a nursery so they had to use only handwatering and with limited volunteers it just didn't get done. I sure wish they would bring it back, it was the highlight of my summer. I'll ask around and see what I turn up.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

John,

I met you there last fall remember? I came away with 7 plants.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

John and Topher, the JCRA plant giveaway this year is scheduled for Oct 11th. Last year it was the same day as our plant swap if I am not mistaken. Since the propagated plants are in pots and many are kept in the greenhouses, I believe that they are allowed to water them as needed.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Well, boys, what are you going to come home with? Better yet, call me while you're there and I'll tell you what to pick up for me. Hahahahahahahaha

I'm not even sure I'm going to be able to get there yet, but Brenda, I'll have some lycoris and muscari for you - Chris, I'll have some lycoris, lee pickles and some lilies for you. Sorry, don't know what they are since Jenn's boyfriend dug them up for me and didn't keep the bulbs with the labels.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Hightider, the grasses are doing great and withstood last year's drought better than most things. It sounds like you have picked up some interesting stuff since the last swap that we attended together. I have been concentrating on propagating just a few things this year including fig trees (Celeste and Brown Turkey). I have a lot of rooted large flowered bi-colored Portulaca which can be wintered over with protection from freezing and a new multi-colored Tradescantia which makes a good, spreading ground cover. I have multiples of a hardy perennial Impatiens arguta, but I am not impressed with its flowers. I also have several kinds of Salvia which might tolerate your salty environment better than most. I will look around at what I have and email you further.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Brenda and Karen W, I have your white hibiscus put aside. Shari, thanks, I would love the Gaillardia! What can I bring for you?

I am also looking for Gaura, more Mexican Petunia and some blood grass or other short grass that turns orange/red or bronze.

In addition to my 'haves' from an earlier post, I also have daylily Inniswood and also daylily Point of View, and canna Intrigue.

Sally


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sally, I would love a start of Canna 'Intrigue'. I'll try to get more than one Gaillardia for you to make the trade more even.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sally, I should be able to get you some blood grass. I'll know for sure when I get out there this weekend.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Sally, I may have some Mexican Petunia in pots that you can have. I know that there are several "sprouts around the ones in the ground. How many would you like? I may still have the pink flowered ('Chi-Chi') as well as 'Purple Showers', if you are interested.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Shari, sounds good.

Ralph, I would love some pink, too. I need a good sized chunk for one area I have in mind in my garden. What can I bring for you?

Sally


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

vickie, I would love some of your bulbs, especially the lycoris. My trade list hasn't been updated but most everything should be the same.

I also have rainbow pineapple for anyone interested.

Tanya


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Tanya- i'd love one of your pups. What can i get for you in return?

Tammy, did I see somewhere that you are growing stevia? If so, is it the variety used as a sweetener? I don't see it on your trade list, so maybe I'm confused. I'd love some of that or solidago 'fireworks'. I'll pull out my leather gloves and bring you a rainbow pineapple pup.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

I'd be happy to bring you some of both. I have stevia seeds from last fall and a big plant i can most likely divide. Yes, it's the kind used as sweetener. I always have lots of the fireworks so getting some of it is no issue at all. :) My fault- i haven't updated my trade list for this fall yet. However anything that's on that bottom section i pretty much always have extras of to dig.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

topher, which Colocasias do you have to trade? I was wondering if I may have a daylily to trade you for an EE. You mentioned you like spiders and doubles- do you have a preferred color?

Shari


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Shari,

Where do you live? As I would prefer you swing by and see what I have available. Some of them I get confused on as I pay more attention to my bananas. Do you have pics of your daylily's?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Chris- I live in Johnston County and I doubt I would be able to visit you before the swap. I would be happy with any of the colocasias with dark stems but especially the Fontanesii or black stem one.

I've put a link to my photobucket page here. There are many albums with pics of the daylilies but I would only be able to trade a few of them since I've only had most of them a year.

Here is a link that might be useful: daylily pics


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

TriangleJohn,

I know have your pink Veluntina seeds, I will have enough for anyone else as well, just speak up.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Shari,

I may be able to dig up some maroon stem or back magic for some Helix, just let me know which ones you would like.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Shari,

ok both for Let it Rip and Helix


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Chris, the maroon stem for Let it Rip will be fine. I have plenty of Black Magic.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Shari,

Ok what would you like for Helix then?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Chris, I don't want to trade Helix since it's in the ground and hasn't increased from the double fan that I planted last Fall. It needs time to settle in before I dig it back up.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Shari, OK I understand

To everyone else I still have Colocasia Black ruffles, Chicago Harlequin and Cranberry stem


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Topher hi again,
What would you want in trade for any of those? I don't have everything on my page but if you will get back to me I will see what I can do.

Ok, ya'll I am as of now planning on making the trip for this one...YEHHHH...

Tammy, hint, hint..lol.

:) Fran


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Fran,

Ok I am getting back to u what else do you have, also what are u looking for?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Hey again topher, I don't know if you have these or if you'd be interested but I can offer you:
Tropical White Canna
Colocasia esculenta 'Nancy's Revenge'
Colocasia Fontanesii Black Stem
That's the only good stuff I have except for baby Mexican Bird of Paradise. They are babies really, and 1 baby Musa Zebrina.
That's it.

:) Fran


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

I have several white to apricot-white potted climbing roses that need more light! These are named varieties (I'll update names on my page when I get home). I also have one more Mickey Mouse EE that I am willing to part with - 2 are already spoken for. I also have plenty of wild ginger. Let me know if anyone is interested.


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

I would love a Mickey Mouse EE. I will look at you page and email you with an offer.

:) Fran


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Magick
Wild Ginger? Do you have Pics?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Topher - I can snap a pic tomorrow after work.

NCGardenGirl - How about Mickey Mouse EE for Colocasia esculenta 'Nancy's Revenge'?


 o
RE: End of Summer Raleigh Swap Special Trades

Does anyone have any Caesalpinia Pride of Barbados they waould like to trade?
