Red best way to launch a naked garden is with some seeds, lots of perennial seed can be started in the fall and flower the following year I will check my seedbox to see what I have for you, SUN or SHADE?

Hey Frances!!
I have mostly full sun. My porch area gets morning shade...but after about gets the hot sun. lol

I would love to trade with you!!!! You had me at red holiday cactus! lol
I have brazile, monstera and heart leaf philo and the peony is pink.

I have some seeds you are looking for Aster and Cosmos!
I would love some of the honeysuckle! I love that stuff! hehe
I see a lot of stuff I'd like! hehe You did good tempting me!!

RE: WANTED: Have and wanted list for the Charlotte area plant sw

Frances, A friend of mine that lives in Gastonia has Heavenly Bamboo and has taken some cuttings for the Greer Swap. I have Nandina but I know for a fact it isn't Heavenly Bamboo because that is the variety I was looking for and settled for the closest thing to it because I couldn't find it.

I just put in some of that pink/orange/yellow Lantana this year so I have a bunch of babies but I may have some seed some time soon.
