HAVE: Lamium orvala and Geranium palmatum

Hey Gardenwebbers---

I have a few of the above-mentioned plants for trade:

L. orvala is a BIG clumping perennial---mine is about 2' high and wide. It doesn't run, doesn't seed aggressively and with its' dark green foliage and rosy pink flowers, it's eyecatching and just a great garden plant. It likes partial shade and a fair bit of moisture. Mine is in dryish soil, and it sulked in the recent heat. I have 7 of these to trade.

The other is a BIG tropical looking geranium from the Canary Islands. This bad boy is almost 4' high when flowering, and has medium pink flowers with a darker eye. It's been in flower for a long time in my garden...
I have 3 of these to trade.
All plants are in 4'" pots.

I'm looking for Epimediums, interesting groundcovers, vines, alpines or cool/unusual plants. Whatcha got?

I'm leaving tomorrow for vacation----
If anyone replies to this post, don't worry if I don't get back to you before the 7th.
I'll talk to you when I get back, and hope to see you at the Poulsbo trade!

Lisa: Wherever you are going, have lots of fun. Looking forward to the trade. I am tempted to ask for the geranium but we will talk about a trade later. Take care

Geranium palmatum

Thanks Flora! I had a wonderful time, and now I'm back and starting to focus more on the trade...
I'll put your name on a Geranium palmatum.
See you soon!

Directions will be forthcoming---I'll be sending those out shortly...
