RE: WANTED: Raleigh Swap Follow Up

I'm so excited! That was my first plant swap and I absolutely LOVED IT!! I brought my mother-in-law with me and we just had the best time meeting people, listening to facts and opinions about plants, snacking and the thrill of the grab and run! The hardest part was choosing which plant to 'stalk' (ha ha!) for the next bell-- so many beauties to choose from!

I can't wait for the next one... this is only twice a year...?!? Thank you all for a great event and to TriangleJohn for organizing this.

RE: WANTED: Raleigh Swap Follow Up

John, thank you again for all you did to acquire the shelter and make this swap happen. It was great to see everyone again, and I am really excited about all the new "stuff" that I brought home. I am really excited about one plant that I picked up during the "grab session". It is a Red-Leaf Hibiscus acetosella 'Haight Ashbury' that has multi-colored cut leaves that makes it look like a small Japanese maple. I have been growing H. acetosella 'Red Shield' this summer against the west wall of our brick house and love how well it has done during our record heat. But this new cultivar 'Haight Ashbury' is stunning. To top it off, we recorded Bryce Lane's program on UNC-TV Saturday and watched it Saturday night. He always selects a plant of the week and guess what it was? H. acetosella 'Haight Ashbury'. Whom do I have to thank for bringing this gorgeous plant?
