I prefer to grow native (non hybrids) plants from all over the world.
Although I already obtained quite a lot of seeds, I'm still searching for new ones.
I would like to grow perennials that are at least hardy to zone 6, or annuals that can be grown in my zone.
You can have a look at my website to see what I have for you in return www.seedsite.eu ALL my seeds are available for trading.
Not everything I grew this year is listed there yet, so please let me know what you're looking for. I'll also have a look at your want list to see if I can offer you anything in return.

Hi Annette,

The plants you name in your mail are beautifull, but unfortunately not cold hardy here.
But I had a look at your have list and there are seeds on it, which I can (try) grow here:

Abelmoschus moschatus (red)
Berlandiera lyrata
Browallia americana
Pycnanthemum pilosum
Salvia verbenacea
Salvia virgata
Scuttelaria tournefortii

From your want list I only have Cuphea lanceolata. And I will be for sure be able to harvest seeds from the Salvia roemeriana and the Salvia columbarieae. The Salvia patens Royal blue might be a problem. It's setting hardly seeds and collecting at the right time is very difficult. Every year I have the same problem with this plant. I can hardly save enough seeds to grow them myself the next year. In Australia it's a perennial, but here I have to grow it as an annual.
Maybe it will set seeds better in the 2nd year.
I can also save seeds of the Salvia microphylla and the Salvia sclarea turkestanica if you're interested.

And just harvested, but not on my website yet:
- Androsace lactaea
- Anthyllis vulneraria coccinea
- Aquilegia caerulea colorado
- Arctotis fastuosa Zulu Prince
- Campanula thyrsoides
- Centaurea cyanus red
- Cerinthe major Yellow gem
- Chrysanthemum paludosum
- Corydalis ochreuleucum
- Corydalis sempervirens
- Dianthus deltoides Arctic fire
- Dicentra spectabilis Alba
- Draba sakurai
- Emilia javanica
- Erodium trifolium
- Geranium sikkonianum
- Geranium rubescens
- Geranium striatum Splish Splash
- Globularia repens
- Heuchera Greenfinch
- Horminium pyrenaicum
- Lamium galeobdolon
- Lamium garganiucum laevigatum
- Lychnis yunnanensis
- Malcomia maritima
- Mertensia pterocarpa
- Nemesia cheiranthus
- Phacelia campanularia
- Phacelia purshii
- Phyteuma scheuzeri
- Saxifraga umbrosa
- Scorzonera suberosa cariensis
- Silene dioica
- Silene orientalis
- Thermopsis caroliana
- Trifolium incarnata
- Vaccaria hispanica
- Viola papilionacea

Let me know if you can find enough on my list to trade for.

I still have the Cuphea firefly.

The Lamium garganicum laevigatum is a native from the middle and east part of Europe. It's not cultivated, so you can hardly find it. The picture is made in my garden.

Yes, it's a beauty. It's my favourite Lamium. It can be used as a ground coverer. If you cut them of after flowering, they will flower for a long time.
Don't know how this one will do in your climate. Keep it in shade (here it's in partial shade).
Most Lamiums prefer shade or partial shade.
