Hi there! I am looking to make a few large trades! I have several wants. i was lucky enough to trade with some generous traders last spring but i fear the plants i got might have died. a family member has fallen Ill and i was the one whom had taken car of him and i feel that my neglect in waterings may have killed them. so im starting over this year. i am in need of some large trades for woodland plants. Ive already purchased a good number of plants off of people on e bay but there are still soooo many plants i want and im hopeing to trade for them insead of buying them. here are some of my newer wants that may not be on my list just yet:
* Mayapple
* Jack in the pulpit
* yellow bells
* TURKS CAP (not michigan lily)
* wild blue phlox
* Trillium~ yellow, pink and purple
* Fire pinks
* here are more from my list:
* Early Meadowrue
* Verbascum, 'Jackie' or make an offer
* Rosy twisted stalk, Streptopus Lanceolatus
* Swamp Candles, Lysimachia Terrestris
* Hardy beard tongue
* Apocynum Androsaemifolium, (Spreading dogbane)
* Viola Sororia "rubra"
* Viola Conspersa ( dog violet)
* Viola Sastrata

Some of the plants i trade for will also be donated to a non-prof organization called the opacum land trust at which they protect endangered species and land in my surrounding area. Each year I donate plants for their annual plant sale. so lets make a trade and help me as well as the cause!

Also If someone out there doesnt have the plants im looking for i may consider a trade for CLEAN nursery pots that are black preferably green is ok too. Quart sized up to 2 gallon size. For a few of my not sure whats fair to trade for these so lets talk. Should anyone have any pots available for shipping let me know IM INTERESTED! I must have more pots to put the plants in that i am to donate! Lg plastic drinking cups just wont cut it! Thanks everyone! PLEASE SEE MY TRADE LIST FOR THE PLANTS I SHOULD HAVE COME SPRING! Missa

Do you have any terrestrial orchids? Which pink one do you speak of? I also have many erythronium species such as E. oreganum and americanum and rostratum. I have an abundance of Trillium ovatum. I also have hundreds of dk green 6"x5", #3 and #1 pots, but I fear the cost of shipping from Washington State would be prohibitive.

The following are plants I would like to obtain to complete my species' garden:
* lady slippers (what is your pink species?)
* Trillium Undulatum (painted trillium)
* Trillium Viride
* Lg. purple fringed orchid (Plantanthera Grandiflora)
