RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

I've looked around and come up with a few things that I can list now, but should have more by swap time. All of the ones I am listing I will have at least 2 trades each, but probably more:

Blackberry lily seedlings
Cannas - Indica Orange & Intrique
Swamp sunflower - (I think this is Helianthus Angustifolius, but not positive). Tall perennial.
Fatsia Japonica - likes shade
Louisana Iris - Purple
Guara seedlings - could be pink or white
Salvias - have several - will root cuttings
Dianthera nodosa - shade, hummingbirds
Shrimp plant 'fruit cocktail' - will root cuttings
Purple or White Beautyberry - will root cuttings

This is just a partial list. Will add more. Two things I am looking for are:

Cuphea 'candy corn' - the orange one with big or small blooms
Solanum Seaforthianum - potato vine (I think I lost mine)or
Solanum Wendlandii - giant potato vine.

If you see anything you want, lmk so I can get it potted.
Looking forward to seeing everyone.

RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

jupiterplants, thanks for the candy corn. Did you see anything from my list for you? I'll add more later.

Tanya, I'll put your name on a white beautyberry. I would love some of your Asian hollyhock seeds.

I think the plant I keep waiting to see the blooms is your blackeyed susan. It did so well for me and I really am amazed how it grew through the hot summer with no watering except the rain. I don't have many plants blooming yet, but they are coming to life in the butterfly garden and it won't be long. Is your blackeyed susan blooming now?

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

ginny no the BES are waiting for my garden swap to bloom!
I have other blooms I wish that you could see but they will probably be done but that is ok!


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Tanya I have tiles for you. I'd like your "Cracker Rose" if it's still available.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny

I got the candy corn in a pot for you . I agree with Tanya ,it is hard to get started. I bleached out a clay pot and I gathered a " bokay" in my hand and planted it. The rate of rooting is poor but with 30 or so cuttings, something takes. Queens wreath is also a bugger to root.

I was wondering if you ( or anybody) has some amaryllis bulbs to share ? I have the common orangey red , a very common red and white ( not the clown) that is blooming everywhere now. I also have a smith and hawkens black pearl .

My rosy dawns order is big enough to start about 18 named cuttings. Are you interested ? I will start some today if you are.

Steve buildt me a indoor growing rack with lights so I can overwinter the coleus next year. Shame to have them die outside for only 8 weeks of winter.

I want to get more yellow in my yard . I have forsythia sage / yellow elder / sunflower bush, but that is about it.

I think we still need some time to see what wakes up in our yard. My variegated starburst clero is showing a hint of green. I thought it was a goner.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

I agree as we get close we will know more and you can bring whatever as any leftovers will find a good home .

Ms Marion I love that you have tiles for me!I will gladly set aside a rose for you!


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Jupiter, I have a lot of Amaryllis and some are blooming now and more to come. I'll put your name on a couple as I see which ones I have multiples of. I've moved them all around and not sure what's what - plus, I don't have names for all of them. Has your 'black pearl' bloomed yet? I googled it and the picture looks amazing!
Tanya, I can't wait to see your purple path.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny , the black pearl bloomed last year and is sending off a spike now. It is the deepest red ....... almost maroon color. I love it. Ill take pic of it when it opens. I know that you can divide the bulbs by cutting into them. I have never done this before. Ill get you one in the future. Remind me. :)

I think the coleus has lost its charm , I don`t have any takers. I guess I am a glutton for punishment. I still love them.
I will root some up anyways LOL !


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

No! No! The coleus has not lost it's charm!! I want some!! lol. I bought 4 at the nursery and I was going to take cuttings if possible to bring to the swap. I still love them and they just fill in the bare spots so well. The 4 I got are the more common ones, but I lost ALL of mine. I'm sure there are others that want them too, but haven't seen your post yet.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny the coleus are yours. I will take cuttings tomorrow. You can grow them out and share with everybody up your way.
Kat has cuttings / plants also. So everybody will have some. Thanks for the amaryllis :)


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny and anyone, do you want a goatweed start? It is supposed to be a butterfly nectar plant I believe. It is a native with a sweet little white flower, not showy but I like it. I also have a native mint, I grow in a container which doesn't drain as it is a bog plant. It is so pretty now with all the little white flowers on it.
Kat


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny , I just looked up Fatsia Japonica and I am interested in it if no one esle wants it. :) I have some veggie seeds. If anybody wants some email me for the list. I am going to trim the yard soon. I will start cuttings. Its starting to look like spring :)


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

jupiterplants, I'll pot you a Fatsia. It's a great shade plant.

I have another if anyone else is interested.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Remind me of the date please.
Kat


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Kat , Its on Sat May 22.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

You asked how the black eyed susan was doing from last year's swap, here is mine with the first bloom this year. It also provided me with 2 more seedlings, so I am very happy. I wanted to get this thread going again as I have lots more to add to my list later. Anyway, here is Tanya's black eyed susan I got last year.

Tanya's Black-eyed Susan

Photobucket

I'll revise my list later. Looking forward to the swap.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Don't they just make you smile! They LOOK Great.
thanks Ginny for letting me know how they thrived for you.
tanya


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Yes, they definitely make me smile!! I especially love how just about every plant in the B'fly garden came from friends and swaps and a lot are still recovering from the freeze. Some of my biggest plants - cherries jubilee, yesterday/today/tomorrow, blue butterfly bush, and abutilon chittendebi are just now getting growth from the roots. On the other side of the bed 3 big firebushes that were about 8 ft are now about a foot high. I can't wait to see it all come together.

Here is my revised listing of plants for the swap:

Blackberry lily seedlings
Cannas - Indica Orange and probably others
Swamp sunflower - (I think this is Helianthus Angustifolius, but not positive). Tall perennial.
Fatsia Japonica - likes shade
Louisana Iris - Purple
Dianthera nodosa - shade, hummingbirds
Shrimp plant 'fruit cocktail' - will root cuttings
Purple or White Beautyberry - will root cuttings
Thunbergia Battiscombeii
Petrea Volubilis 'queen's wreath' (hopefully rooted)
Clerodendrum Wallichii 'bridal veil'
Clerodendrum splendens vine 'flaming glorybower' (bright solid red clusters in fall/winter - hummers love it)
Colocasia 'coal miner' elephant ear (this is a runner, but beautiful for a pot)
Mexican sage
Big Blue Salvia - not sure which one.
Red salvia - riverside sage
Hibiscus acetosella seedlings - red leaf hibiscus
Coleus

Have only one trade of some, but most at least 2 or more.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

I know this is not a plant, but I am looking for an old aluminum colander. It doesn't have to be perfect, just needs to work. If you find one at a yardsale or thrift shop for a dollar or two I will gladly pay you for it. I've been looking for 6 months with no success.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Tanya , what do you need us to bring for food ?


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Oh yes it is getting to be time to think about food. Well, Jim said he will gladly grill and take care of meat so start adding your specialties here!
tanya


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Where is everybody?? Only 2 weeks until the swap and not many responses. Is it still on?

I'll bring Deviled Eggs if that's ok.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and Tanya's garden.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny they must be out in the garden potting up things to trade. LOL

I have a partial bag of Osmocote if any one would like it. I also have a ton of 4" pots.

I have 6-7 small pots of Scilla Violacea (makes a great house plant, although I grow it in dappled shade).

I'll bring bottled water and a dessert.
Can't wait to see everyone. Iris will be joining me and is just thrilled to be asked back! LOL


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

I believe there 4 of us coming from the north palm area . I always love this time of year and and look forward to another swap.

I will bring a barley and veggie salad that changes every time I make it :) I looked at Tanya's wants , and I really don't have what she is looking for.
My aroids are just now starting to perk up. Unfortunately they are real puny. I think allot has rotten in the ground because of all the cold rain we had this winter. In fact, I plan to dig up all my caladium next winter for safekeeping. Same with my gingers.

I will go thru my flower seeds and post soon.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Marion - I know that's what I've been doing - potting plants and planting too. I'm glad Iris is coming to the swap. I know she will miss them when she moves, but she will have family around. Maybe they are gardeners too.

D'Ann - was there anything else for you besides the fatsia?

Anybody want purple horsemint? - I think!! It's not blooming yet, but it smells good, so that's what I think it is. Hope it's not a weed. lol

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ill take some horsemint.
the bees love it :)


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

I love the horsemint too, but I had 3 big clumps come up and I think I pulled a lot out thinking it was a weed. I'm still not 100% sure. lol. Anyway, I'll pot some.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Tanya, I sent you an email for directions. Hope it went through.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Hi , I have someperennial peanut that I am going to remove for my new veggie bed.

Looking forward to the swap!


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Hi,

Please, please count me in.
Just got back from a 1-mth trip to Asia & my garden is a mess! Not sure what I can offer yet, plant or seed wise. But I can bring Asian style chicken wings as I've brought some fresh spices home with me ~ no worries, spicy but not hot ~ & Achar (Indonesian pickles) made from homegrown radishes & carrots.

Plus I would love to see Goldenpond's garden again.
Plus I've become a mint lover - Ginibee, may I request a horsemint cutting please?

fern

tanya


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

fern - I was wondering about you too - hope you had a great time in Asia. I'm potting horsemit tomorrow and putting your name on a pot.

Tanya - I do have another small fatsia and I'll put your name on it. The intrique is dark leaves with orange blooms. I got it in a trade last year and she was overly generous.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list. and..

Kat - I would love a goat weed if still available.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginny-I will get a goatweed potted up for you.

Tanya-I would like another start of the black eyed susan if you have one you can spare. Mine didn't come back.
Is there anything I have posted on the Jupiter Farms swap that you would like?

only 3 days away!


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Jupiterplants, can I take up your offer of spanish moss please? I've been trying in vain to grow some on my 'old oak tree' but it's still bald. :(

My garden is still a mess after our 1-mth absence but I've got Asian vegetable seeds - Kai Lan, Pak Choy & Choy Sum, lantana seeds, seedlings of Coreopsis (tickseed with buds) grown from seeds given to me during the last swap, lots of rooted Lemongrass and 2 little seagrape seedlings.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Kat - thanks for the goat weed.

Fern - I'd like a lemon grass if you have enough. I can bring you apple mint if you don't have that one. I got it from a friend, but I'll get more later.

Can't wait to see everyone.

Ginny


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Small fern.. the moss is yours :)


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Ginibee - Lemongrass coming you way.

Jupiterplants - thanks.

Also found 4 Asparagus plants which survived. I can pot some if anyone is interested. It's supposed to bear shoots which are edible but I'm not sure when and/or how many.


 o
RE: wanted: treasure coast haves and have nots list

Butterflygardener do you still have any , african blue basil, everglades tomato?
Also,,,, does anyone have the tall red cannas?
