Two large Yaku rhododendrons for trade. Lovely fuzzy gold coating under the leaves. They're healthy specimens and bloom profusely. About 5' tall and 5' wide each.

I can help dig them and lift them, but you'll need to take them from my property yourself.

Or, free to a good home, if you want to come get them.

RE: HAVE: Two large Yaku Rhodies, pink blooms

Did anyone take you up on your rhodies yet? If not, I am interested. I have a few things on your list including:
Ocean spray.
Ribes sanguineum
Native mahonias
possibly some red penstemon
possibly some agastache
viola labradorica

Please post here if they are still available. I'll check the thread frequently.

They're still up for grabs, so they're yours. I'd be interested in any of the items you have to offer. I'll try sending you an email through Gardenweb, but let me know here if you don't get it.

RE: HAVE: Two large Yaku Rhodies, pink blooms

Super! I haven't received a message from you, but I don't do much on gardenweb so I'm not particularly savvy about how to use all the features. You can email me at Pixydish58 at yahoo dot com.
I am attending the plant swap in Redmond on November 3 from 10:00 to noon or a bit later. Since I will be that way already, I'm hoping that would be a good day to come by in the afternoon. I have to contact the person I'm carpooling with and make sure she is available, but likely it will not be a problem. If you'll email me we can work out the details. If that isn't a good day for you, we can work something else out.

I will definitely be able to come by the afternoon of November 3 if that day is good for you. I'll have a friend with me and we'll both have shovels.
