HAVE: iron clad hosta

Posted by docgoose 5 NY ( on

I have bunches of hostas I am willing to divide and exchange for those who want them.
I am not exactly sure of their names but I was told when they were planted that they are "iron clad" that is extremely resistant to bugs and other problems. From what I have seen they have lived up to this.
The rest of this post is the standard post I have been saying on this site:
I have a Purple Wisteria and would be willing to trade it for just about anything.
The whole mailing procedure sounds a bit complicated so it would be nice if I could find people close in NY (I live in Yonkers). I would be willing to do all the transplanting.
I would also like to practically give away my grape vines (red flame air layered and ready to go!) and strawberry plants. I probably should get rid of all my forsythia and hosta in the side corner of my house but I dont see why anyone would want any of that. I also have some red trumpet vine its just too big for the places its in now and would like to be rid of it.

The plants I am interested in are but not just limited to:
Creeping Phlox, Magnolia Niger, rhubarb, blueberry, any clematis, any dogwood, any azalea, any smallish flowering perennial.
I certainly would trade all of the plants I listed if I could find a PERSIMMON!

Check out this website to see if your host "iron clad" is one of the ones listed. I am a hosta collector and will take about any hosta known or unknown. I have looked on the website and check my reference book, The Hostapedia, and cannot find it listed. I have lots of native NC dogwood seedlings and would be willing to do a trade. I will try to have it identified by some of my buddies in the hosta industry. Look forward to trading. My trade list is under my GW name jmclaurin.
