Now that we know we are having a swap I figured I would start the list here.

I have Devils backbone (I believe it is Pedilanthus variegatus, the leaves get pink with sun).
Lemon Grass
Dwarf papyrus

So far that looks like all the cold has not touched. Everything else looks a bit tiny or brown right now :-)

Trini, I would love a start of the Devils backbone! I have a nice size Plumeria jamaicensis (in the ground...maybe 5 feet) - it's just in the wrong place and I have another, so if someone wants it I'll dig it up and bring it. I also am planning on cutting back my plumeria pudica if anyone wants some cuttings. I also have a bunch of landscape-type (i.e. big and sharp) bromeliads. And some gingers that need dividing, along with some other plumeria's I'm planning on cutting back. I have a list of ID's of my broms, plumerias & gingers but have long since given up trying to keep track of what's what. I can always provide pictures and the list if you want to try to correct id.

I'll look around tomorrow and see what else I can bring.

If anyone has tithonia diversifolia or alpinia purpurata or hedychium (sp?) I'd love a start...

Hi everyone :) I was wondering if anyone has Clerodendron Paniculatum ( Pagoda flower). I know it grows like a weed, but when Scruffy died we planted a very small one over her grave and then we got hit by Decembers frost. Steve loves the plant , and I need to replace it.

I am looking forward to the get together !

Helen, I actually have tithonia diversifolia. It looks like a big sunflower and the leaves are exactly the same. It seems to be coming back from the freeze, so if I have some you are welcome to a piece.

RE: WANTED: Jupiter Swap page

D'Ann, I could only see one little plant of the C. paniculatum coming back, but I have C. Speciosissimum (also commonly called pagoda flower)which is one of my favorite hummingbird magnets. I also have C. Splendens (flaming glorybower) which is the solid red, winter blooming vine. If you or anyone else would like either I will bring to the swap. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Ginny , yes please save the C Paniculatum for me :) I have the others. I should have some coleus for you :)

RE: WANTED: Jupiter Swap page

D'Ann, I potted the pagoda flower for you, but I have to tell you it's a puny little thing, so not sure how it will do.

I have 2 trades of Solanum Seaforthianum (purple potato vine)if anyone wants.

Would love Solanum jasminoides (white potato vine) if anyone has.

Abutilon flowering maple tree - rooted (1)
Coral honeysuckle - rooted (1)
Jasmine sambac
Orange cosmos - seedlings or seeds
Blackberry lily
Scented geranium with lavender blooms (not sure what scent)

So its settled . April 30 th at 10:00 . Looking forward to seeing everybody. I thought I would have some coleus to share , but gephart didn,t seed me my order till yesterday. And the others arn't big yet.
Maybe we can have a playdate in the summer.
I'm still thinking about what to bring. I got a few recipes I would like to try out .

Michelle,
I would have loved to come, especially since I live just around the corner. I had already made plans with the Jupiter Orchid Society to have a repotting event at my house the same morning. If you end up not going to a nursery you are all welcome to swing by my house. I know you haven't been to it yet, but some of the others have. We have added a lot since the last swap I had, including a pond with waterfall. And if anyone is interested in an orchid repotting lesson, I can leave something to demonstrate while you are there.

I also have a few plants I would like to donate to the swap, just to get rid of stuff I have sitting around in pots. I'll make a list and post it.

Let me know if you guys want to stop over after your swap. I may do a swap later in the year, maybe Fall.

D'Ann, is that the Pagoda flower we bought at Tropical Acres? IF so I have lots of them that came up last year and was going to pull about half of them out.

Cherie,

You just sold me. I would love to see your place. I did not know orchids really needed re-potting....I guess that means I need a lesson or more :-)

Ginny, that is very nice of you. But I am very easy. A true Gemini I have no favorites...or can't decide. I really do not need anything special. I am just looking forward to the swap, showing off the work I've done (to people who appreciate it) and now to seeing Cherie's place as well.

RE: WANTED: Jupiter Swap page

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. The yard is not in great conditon right now, still in winter recovery mode, so keep your blinders on. And hubby has a work project going on that is not complete but you will see the "before", and hope to have a swap in the Fall so everyone can see the "After".

I will have a few plants to donate plus others that can be dug up, if anyone wants one of the Pagoda flower mentioned above, I have lots, we can just dig them up when you come.
