Would you please save me some of that Phlox? Looked it up...that must be a really tough plant! Would like to try it. And would like to have the blackberry also, if nobody else has already asked. Could trade you a Brazos or Kiowa Blackberry if you'd like one. Or whatever you'd like that I have.

Ok, Linda tx8, the blackberry is your's and some of the phlox.

I will also have starts of yellow butterfly vine. Notice the green seed pods that resemble a butterfly.

Ooh, is that the native Texas Columbine?

Pretty pretty!

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Sylvia. I had native TX red and hinkley's and they cross pollenated....or what ever they do.


 o
RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Well...

I'd heard that some kind of oaks (post oaks maybe?) are "promiscuous", but "columbine hussies" are a new idea to me!

it's just gorgeous!

When I get the chance to go to the Ft Worth Botanic Gardens, I always make sure to see their columbines.

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

These are so easy to grow. Would you like me to save you seed?


 o
RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Yes, please!

I've had only one columbine to return in the past (a nice light blue one), & I haven't seen it yet this year.

(*After* I got 3 or 4 at an end-of-season sale one year, I read that our climate is too harsh & that I should stick with the hardy native columbines.)

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Kathy, I sure wish I could come. You have lots of pretty plants.

I know you'll have a lot of people come. Most people don't like to commit until a few days before it starts.

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Hi,

I, also, will have native mealy blue salvia.

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Y'all must be in full "spring mode" now, with your gardens just bursting.

When I take things to the swap, I always think I've cleared out enough space in the garden to allow for the growing season, & I always think I'm not going to bring home very much.

Hah!

Heed this advice from a plantaholic with pots & buckets all over the place:

You really will need space in your gardens for all the wonderful things you'll bring home!

If any one wants red spider lilies, I will bring some to the swap.

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Kathy, I would love some of your spider lilies. I will bring some bulbs that I planted for you last November. Barb

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

I would love some spider lilies also...I posted what I most likely will bring in the main texas forum

RE: WANTED: Have March San Antonio Plant Swap

Would one of you San Antonio gardeners please take a look at the thread in the link below and try to tell us what the name of this plant is?

Or would one of you be willing to run by the hotel, take a picture and post it so we can try to figure it out?

Dear Natvtxn,

I stumbled onto this website tonight and what luck that a trade is happening this week. I would like to pre-trade with you columbine seed or plants, spider lilies, your aster and your wealth of knowledge. I'm very new to gardening but have amaryllis belladonna "naked ladies" pink bulbs the size of a Texas Sweet Onion that I can trade with you or my homemade oatmeal cookies. My husband just built me a 10 X 20 foot planting bed that is a blank canvas for new plants.

Email me at cestbellevie@yahoo.com. Thanks.
