I've got several big leaf plants I could trade for a start of Tetrapanax papyrifera, especially. var. 'Steroidal Giant'. I understand that it suckers profusely. Any cultural information would be most welcome too.

Some big leaved things I have to trade:
Gunnera manicata
Darmera peltata
Darmera peltata (dwarf variety)
Petaistes japonica 'gigantia'
Rheum palmatum (mature rootstock)
Hosta Sum-and-Substance
And a host of perennial flowers and foliage plants.

Give me a call

Hi Jim,
I don't know of anyone with them to trade yet, but I just bought a couple of Steroidal Giants on Ebay for $12 ea., $35 for 2 incl shipping.
There is also a guy in the Olympia area that is selling them out of his garden for $20 ea. ( Jay at thepalmhouse@comcast.net ).
They also have them at Molbecks which is not far from you, but I think they want a premium for them.
I'll have some in a couple years. ;)
