HAVE: helleborus foetidus seedlings for hosta seedlings

Posted by claysoil z6 PA ( on

Anyone have extra seedlings to trade? I'm looking for blue hosta or golden hostas.

My foetidus has red in the stems and the 1 -2 year old seedlings from these plants have inherited this redness. I presently have lots of new seedlings under the parent plants, but of course there is no guarantee of what their mature coloration will be. I'd be happy to email pictures of the parent plants.

I prefer to stay in the eastern half of the US because of shipping rates, and will only trade with someone who agrees to ship in a small box (not envelope)

Keep in mind, they just sprouted this spring! It can take 3 years before they bloom for the first time.

RE: HAVE: helleborus foetidus seedlings for hosta seedlings

I don't know if you'll be interested in this, but I'm trading off all my generic (read: lost the labels) hosta. I have some nice variegated ones (green/white) and several medium, upright, avocado colored variations.

I'd be very interetsed in the hellebore seedlings, because hosta and hellebore are the only things that seem to survive under aggressive maples with roots that kill everything.

I understand if you're not interested, but if you would, please just let me know?
