I am not getting any response on the Plant trading forum. So I thought I might try here. Would anyone have a few Bengal tiger or Tropicanna plants for trade? I would also love a few calla, blk EEs or Illustria, upright bulbs too. Maybe a double brug. Mandevillas, hibiscus. Let me know. I have lots of daylilies, hosta and iris to trade. I am to far away to make the RUs so maybe someone could send me a box. I also have a small Japanese maple I could send.
I am pretty sure that I have some of the bengal ... will need to see how much is down in my far bed. I did have tropicana but I can't remember if that is one of the ones I lost or not. Will have to find my sheet to look. Sorry I know I don't have any of the other things you listed...
Genna, just 3 or 4 would be great. What are you interested in? I have trouble overwintering tropicals here. I just love them and cannot help myself. I would love to be in a warmer zone. Maybe someday :) My DH retires in about 4 yrs.
Oh, I didn't realize they were not hardy for you! I have a MAJOR remodel project going on this weekend - we are redoing a hardwood floor in a rent house, but I will try my best to get some dug on Monday evening so that I can get them in the mail to you. Teresa I LOVE daylilies and Iris too... I have maybe 20 - 30 of each. But would love to have more! I can't do hosta yet because the only shade I have is used as a deer bed and I think they would just EAT them!
No, sorry, I can never get enough time to get a list caught up! :) But I have about 12 from Dan Hansen due to Lampchop's coops and about 4 of the Westborne DLs - actually I really think I have lost almost all of my Westborne's; and I have several unnamed Westborne seedlings...then the few others I have came from friends at Roundups. I love almost all of them, but I don't have any Ufs because I was partial to the traditional kind when I first started. I love yellows, or purples, or reds,,, well - actually ANY color! LOL I do love the Spacecoast ones and I only have one of those but I know they are usually more expensive... and one of those for a Bengal would probably not be a fair trade. I am easy to please...
I am also looking for any dark yellow or golden iris if you happen to have a pretty one of those. My beds are more of a cottage look with everything thrown together. I started out trying to have a plan then I would kill something - so I just started planting things to see if I could get stuff to live... :) Now, it is living but no distinct plan... but I am not a formal person so it suits me fine.
We have another long hard day ahead of us on our flooring project - it is taking even more time than expected and has not been going well - one problem after another type project, but I hope to get home tonight in time to dig the Bengals. It would be great if I could find my list so I would know if Cleopatra is the one I still have - I will TRY to find it and let you know. I have a yellow with red streaks blooming right now that I THINK I remember was Cleopatra, but I need to find my list... I have 6 other cannas too.
I don't have anything your asking for but I do have a double pink daydreams brugmansia cutting, I can send you it's been in water quite somet ime and has quite a few roots on it already, send me a dmail with your address and I'll get it in the mail for postage.
I have the box ready to go out tomorrow. I got your address off the exchange so I hope it is right. I have a nice selection boxed up of colocasia's and an upright. Most are named. If you mulch them good in the fall ( we use leaves) and cover them good I bet they will come back.
Thanks so much! I will be in great shape now! I may lift them this year and after they have babies experiment with leaving them in the ground. I had a 90 yr old uncle that left them out but put bags of raked leaves over them.
