HAVE: For Issaquah

I'm starting to feel like I'm the only one out here, but, here goes!

Does anyone want any Leycesteria formosa (Himalayan Honeysuckle) for the Issaquah trade? I've got lots of babies, but I'm not going to pot up any unless someone wants them. Here are pics:

I'm here, but I already have one!

RE: HAVE: For Issaquah

Dear Doris,

I got a seedling of Himalayan honeysuckle a couple of years ago and it's grown well. Does it propagate from dropped seed? Cuttings? Does it volunteer, or should I deliberately sow it in pots? I'd like to grow more of it.

If you are coming to the GreenElephant in Nov at the church I'd like to get about 5 of them to plant along a path on the property. Otherwise, I'll take them now. But I personally feel that things like this transplant better later in the fall.

Hi Jim,

It self sows, but this is the first year I've had babies. And I do have a lot, so I can accommodate your need for five or more. I also layered a plant last fall. I don't think cuttings would work. The stems are hollow, I believe.

Oh, and the birds and bees love it. Another plus.

If you nag me, I will go to Green Elephant in November. I live close enough. I just need a little prodding!

I'm still pulling out babies of that by the thousands... It's a gorgeous plant but it was just a bit TOOOO happy at my place and I gave mine to someone with more room. I can probably also dig up some babies if anyone else wants any.
