HAVE: Garden close-out (moving out & can't take it all)

Hi Everyone,
Well the good news is I'm finally graduating. The bad news (for me anyway), I have to move all of the plants in my garden. Here is the list of what I will have available:
Lavendar native (Maypop; Passiflora incarnata)
Yellow native (P. citrina)
Red tropical (P. coccinea)

Roses (rebloomer = blooms all season)
10gal 'Giggles' miniature pink rebloomer
30gal 'Marie Daly' short mid-pink rebloomer
30gal 'New Dawn' climbing light pink rebloomer
30gal Chestnut rose (Rosa roxburghii) pink rebloomer
30gal 'Seven Sisters -Red' climbing darkpink/red spring bloomer
30gal 'White Dawn' climbing white blend rebloomer

Cannas (from mixed bed - pot luck on color/hybrid)
Indian shot(6ft, red bloom), 'Florence Vaughn (4ft, yellow/orange blooms), 'Miss Oklahoma' (4ft, watermelon blooms), 'Pink Futurity' (5ft, pink blooms), 'Yellow Futurity' (5ft, yellow blooms), 'Yellow King Humbert' (4ft, yellow blooms), 'Omega' (10ft, yellow? blooms), canna musifolia (12ft, yellow blooms)

30gal peach tree (seed grown), 'Alma' fig (2 year-old plant in 30gal container), Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia - 3 year-old seedling), Floss-silk trees (Chorisia speciosa - 3 year-old seedlings), jujube tree (ziziphus jujuba - 5 year-old clump), loquat (Eriobotrya japonica), trifolate orange (Poncirus trifoliata)

Water plants
Waterpoppy (Hydrocleys nymphoides), native Cabomba caroliniana, horsetail (Equisetum hyemale), umbrella palm (cyprus alterifolius)

paperwhites ('Ziva' and unnamed types), chasteberry tree (Vitex agnus-castus), honey leaf (Stevia rebaudiana), 'Rosborough' blackberries, prickley pear (one w/ mid-sized pads, spines, and yellow flowers; one w/ mid-sized [5-7in] pads, only tiny spines, and yellow flowers; one w/ large [7-12in] pads, spines, and yellow flowers), unnamed fruiting banana, upright clock vine bush (Thunbergia battescombie erecta)

I would like to make larger trades. I go to most of the central Texas plant swaps so a face-to-face trade this spring (without monsterous postage changes) is definitely prefered. I'm looking for antique roses (fully double, scented, and relatively disease-free a plus), bonsai-able trees (small leaves, 1-2 inch trunk caliper), or something unusual. If you're interested in just about anything, just let me know.

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving,

Hi Storey,

Would love to get your P. coccinea and thunbergia clock vine but don't have any of your wants.
I do have some white fragrant crinums, yellow flag iris, blue/purple with yellow beardless iris, red pine cone ginger, EE "Chicago Harlequin" and amaryllis, not Red Lion, but they are dark red. If you want more cannas, I have tall yellow with orangy splashes around throat, perhaps "Richard Wallace".



RE: HAVE: Garden close-out (moving out & can't take it all)

If you have any of the yellow passion vine left i would love some cuttings would be fine. Look at my list when you get time. I will post later for the swaps in the spring. missed you at the Fort Bend Co fall swap. Where are you moving? Shannan

RE: HAVE: Garden close-out (moving out & can't take it all)

I had given up on this post, but perhaps all is not lost.
I know it's late and I'm too far away, but would it be possible to get cuttings of Giggles and Marie Daly. I have Monsieur Tillier or maybe an Archduke Charles that were rooted in Sept. that I would consider a trade. I also have Belinda's Dream--a workhorse bloomer. e-mail me if a trade is possible.

RE: HAVE: Garden close-out (moving out & can't take it all)

Is it too late to get any of your Yellow native (P. citrina),
Red tropical (P. coccinea) and the water poppy.
I will be at the Ft. Bend plant swap if you want to avoid mailing.
