HAVE: Houston exchange

I have:

Two sago palms, both growing happily in 1 gallon pots. ~5-7 fronds, planted about 2 years ago from pups, 4-6" diameter.

One red oak and one black oak in rootballs, each is about 2-3 feet tall and dormant. These could probably ship bare-root.

Shasta Daisies in pots, biennials bloomed last year and should grow in 2010 for 2011 bloom. ~4-6" tall now, lots of new growth.

Pine tree, unsure of exact species (red pine?)...~2' tall in 5 gal pot.

Mint: aggressive evergreen ground cover with purple flowers.

Unidentified evergreen ivy, grows aggressively and has nice purple flowers in spring and summer.

Okra seeds, plants grew to 12 feet tall this summer. I usually plant Okra in March or April.

I am looking for Texas Gold and/or Hinckley's Columbine, Bird of Paradise, Lakos Bamboo, and/or evergreen shrubs/hedges such as gardenia, holly, boxwood, etc.

I have mexican bird of paradise pride of barbedos (seeds).

RE: HAVE: Houston exchange

How big do you want the box wood plants and how many ?
I have pulled several 4-6 inch ones out of my flower beds and thrown them in the trash. The birds plant them for me.
I could possibly dig up some in the 3-6 ft height range. They are trying to take over my garden area. I cut off a 5 ft stick from one last year (Spring) and stuck it in the ground to support another plant and the darned thing rooted. If you are interested LMK and we could meet half way. I live in belton, thats next to Temple TX
