Have: Aristolochia gigantea or trilobata. Want: Issai Kiwi

I have rooted cuttings of Aristolochia gigantea and A. trilobata. These are among the more dramatic Aristolochias:

Not my plant, but the mother plant of my A. trilobatas:

An A. gigantea photo from Logee's (I should my own photo soon):

My A. gigantea is the typical form (flowers up to 10 inches or so), not the one which is generally considered to be A. brasiliensis.

These are very small cuttings with strong roots. They haven't really put out new growth yet.

I'm looking for unrooted or rooted cuttings of Actinidia arguta 'Issai'. I'm not interested in any other Kiwi species/varies, unless they are dwarf and self-fertile.

A few other things I have:

Passiflora 'Lavender Lady' (aka Amethyst) rooted cuttings--one even bloomed immediately.

Alyogyne (Hibiscus) hakeifolia: Hibiscus close relative with needle like foliage and tulip-like flowers. Unrooted cuttings.

Brugmansia 'Dr. Seuss' unrooted cuttings

Epiphyllum chrysocardium (fernleaf cactus): rooted cuttings.

Tiny, tiny Passiflora edulis seedlings. At some stage I'm going to have to get rid of these, and I have far too many to transplant. Free even without an exchange.

Cerinthe major purpurascens 'Kiwi blue'. Also free if someone wants a few.

Unrooted cuttings of a fuzzy kiwi (A. deliciosa) of unknown sex. It came up as a volunteer.

Here's a photo of my Aristolochia gigantea plant--currently blooming. Two flowers are open, with 2 closed buds:


The flowers are about 8 inches; I believe they would be a bit bigger under ideal conditions.

Here's the correct link to the picture of the A. trilobata mother plant. Again, it's neither my plant nor my picture.
