You know, if you join the JC Raulston Arboretum over by campus (Friends of the Arboretum) you would be able to snag a few of these guys at their numerous plant giveaways. They have lectures throughout the year with about a dozen plants handed out as door prizes at the end and a huge give away in the fall where you can haul out all that you can carry. They have in their collection just about everything on your list.

I have some Florida azalea and sourwood seedlings -- they probably can't go into the ground until next year though, they are tiny. I have a spare Prairie rose seedling (also small), and will probably have rooted cuttings of swamp rose this fall as well. I am going to try to root some winterberry, beautyberry and blue mist shrub so there will be extras. I dug a sucker of a Carolina rose -- if that doesn't work I'm going to try to grow more from seed, if this drought doesn't keep the hips from maturing.

RE: WANTED: Wanted: Native trees shrubs

Alicia, will you be bringing any Florida azalea seedlings to the fall swap? I'd love to put my name on one for a swap to be determined later, if you're at all interested.

RE: WANTED: Wanted: Native trees shrubs

Yes, I can bring some to the swap. They need to go ahead and grow though, they're small!
