I have the following plants for trade (none for postage at this time). Plants will be well-rooted (not cuttings or seeds). They may be small since it's early in the season, but they've all been grown in ground for a year or more and roots are well developed.
I'm looking to trade for other zone 7 perennials (no cuttings or seeds), roses, etc as listed at the end of this post. I'm always open to suggestions but I usually do not grow tropicals anymore since I'd have to dig and store for winter.
DAYLILIES: One trade is one Double Fan (DF) unless otherwise stated below with TF (Triple Fan):
You can look these daylilies up in the database at http://www.tinkersgardens.com to see what they look like and how tall they get. If you need to see some that aren't shown there, let me know and I'll post pics from my gardens here.

In return I'm looking for plants that are hardy in zone 7.
I also do not accept cuttings or seeds in trade. The plants I send you will be well rooted and I need the same please. I have no time or skill to deal with cuttings or seeds.
I'm looking for the following, but I'm open to other ideas too, and I'd consider something non plant as well if it's something I could use.
a climbing rose, preferrably The Fairy climber, the Iceberg climber, or some other climbing that rose that blooms most of the summer. Something with a romantic name would be nice too since it's going in the wedding garden on an entrance arbor.

Non-Plant items I could use:
Molds for making concrete garden decor

I'm open to other suggestions. I'll add other plants to my haves list when they pop up.
