I have heliconia rostrata and red yellow gyro to trade. I am interested in edibles suitable for zone 10, orchids, other gingers, pink sunburst canna, key lime, handmade items, newer garden books, etc.

I have yellow King Humbert canna, Varietas canna, small peach brugs, and butterfly ginger. I might be able to pull out a Roi Humbert or City of Portland canna rhizome (I just got them this season, so they haven't spread too much).

I would love one of each heliconia for my balcony in New Orleans!

Hi Lady,
I have shell ginger plant and the height is almost 6 ft tall. I'll trade you for the shell ginger rhizomes for the Heliconia rhizomes.
I'm in Bonsall,California.
Hope you still have some to spare a couple rhizomes.

RE: HAVE: heliconias

I have been dying for a heliconia rostrata for years. Do you still have any to trade?

I have lots of exotic plants, many of which I don't know the names for. Amongst them I have at least six gingers, a heliconia which I believe is a velloziana, lilies of variuos sorts, fuschias, a philodendron with , some strange and obscure aram, and a number of bromeliads, some more common and some rare 3 colors of daturas, and a lot more. I can try to take pics or can send you a surprise packet. Let me know. If you have any flowering bog or pond plants I am also interested.

RE: HAVE: heliconias

yvonne you have no email on your page for me to get in touch with you. This post is 5 years old! I do have some rostrata I can trade. I have a large collection so I would need names or pictures of your gingers and philos.
