Don't know if this is the right forum to offer this (I mistakenly put it on the other forum)...but my husband and I are wanting to downsize some of our rose collection again (tired of spraying for blackspot!) & want to plant perennials that make good cut flowers in their place (mostly sun in our yard). We live just outside the Syracuse area (Baldwinsville). We want some really colorful, long-bloomers that are a little unusual....NOT your typical Home Depot/Lowes varieties! If you're interested, please email me & tell me what you have. I may or may not be interested (have enough of some perennials already) but please don't be afraid to ask. I am especially wanting the following:

Phlox David/Starfire/Shortwood/Bright Eyes/Blue Paradise

Lilies: Dizzy or Tiger Woods/Black Tie/Rio Negro/Nymph/Luminaries/Quintessence/Pizzazz/Scheherazade/American Spirit and Tangos other than Dot Com
Delphinium grandiflora (short, bushy varieties like Blue Mirror, Blue Butterfly, Summer Nights etc.)

Achillea (yarrow): Paprika, Summer Berries (dark reds) etc, good yellows & oranges
Geranium Rozanne
Persicaria Red Dragon (chevron)
Lobelia Monet Moment
Centaurea montana (mountain bluet) & purple varieties too
Centranthus ruber (red valerian)
Campanula persicifolia (peachleaf bellflower)
Campanula Sarastro
Fritillaria meleagris bulbs
Gaillardia Burgundy/Oranges & Lemons/Tokajer
Rudbeckia Cappuccino/Cherokee Sunset/Solar Eclipse/Maya
Buddleia Lo & Behold Blue Clip or Honeycomb
Ladybells (adenophora)
Hydrangea Pinky Winky
Veronica Goodness Grows/Crater Lake Blue/Sunny Border Blue
Aquilegia(columbine): Hose 'n hose types, Barlow etc....

Roses I have & am sad to say goodbye to:

Well Being
Baron Girod d'lain
Hot Cocoa
Veterans Honor
Garden Party
