This stunning plant brightens up the late summer/early fall garden. Self sows. If you don't want it to self sow just cut the plant before the seeds turn brown/tan. Euphborbia Marginate Pursh -

Here are to links to the plant. I will trade for sedum starts, Hummingbird Vine seeds, chicken/hens that are not the basic C/H, or white cosmo seeds. The number of seeds I trade is what ever is fair to you - DMAIL please. They are not ripe yet but I want to plan ahead.

http://www.visoflora.com/images/original/euphorbe-polichromia-visoflora-19954.jpg
Snow-on-the-mountain, Euphorbia marginata, which was new to science when collected by Lewis and Clark in 1806, soon became a common annual in 19th-century seed catalogues. Although its natural distribution is along the west side of the Missouri River in North Dakota, it proved adaptable to a wide range of soil types and growing conditions and likely escaped from cultivation into farmlands from Minnesota to Texas and New Mexico. Still other adaptable western species like the Western Jacob's ladder (Polemonium pulcherrimum) and even Lewis's prairie flax, the North American subspecies of the common European blue flax, never managed to captivate American nurserymen, even though they grow with equal vigor and beauty. Catalogues generally offered only the traditional garden-variety counterparts, probably because it was easier to acquire these perennials from seed sources abroad.

The seeds should dry this week. We had rain for 3 days. I've collected a few but they should brown quickly...

I owe one already from a trade and will get your seeds out as quickly as I can.

Jonna, I have no idea how to ship outside the U.S. what are the regulations?

Please let me know what you would like in return.

I would like to trade for a start of 'Purple Emperor' sedum. My seeds are not ripe yet. I have a few that have browned but not enough to start trading. I am building the trade list for these seeds and thought they would have dried by now - crazy weather. If that would be a good trade for you I will send as many seeds as you want once they are ripe.

Celene,
I didn't see anything that I needed from your trade list. Do you have anything else that's not listed? I can do postage if necessary but trying to find a few things - do you have small house cactus?

Jonna,
Let me go look at your trade list.

I'll post back when seeds are ripe...another week or so and I should have cups full.

I don't have needly cactuses, just some epiphytes, like ric rac cactus. I have a bunch of sedums that aren't on my trade list, but they're petering out for the year, I'd hate to send them to you now. I have a bunch of seeds as well, if there's anything you're looking for, let me know.

Diamond,
I just took a glance but your trade list is different than any I've seen. Do you have pictures of the pink/red peony poppy? That was the first thing that struck my mind in 3 seconds - so I need to review your list when I have more time.

Amanda - sold deal - I will let you know when seeds are ready for shipping.

Hey Kathy,

I don't have anything you are asking for. In fact, I haven't even collected seed this year - they are still outside on the plants. I will look around and see what I have and hope to tempt you as I would love to have some of your euphorbia.

Hi Kathy - just about ready with 2 maybe 3 small starts. They're green! But they did come from the purple emperor. I guess we are experiencing the same weather pattern. I'll let you know when they're ready to ship. Maybe early next week (oops! Thanksgiving!!!). Keep you posted. Don't want them to get stuck anywhere over the holiday. ;)

do you think we should wait until spring to send the sedum? The seeds can be sent now or when your sedums get out of the ground in Feb/March. Whatever is easy but I don't think they will do so great here because the weather has gone down hill so quickly - snow yesterday. I will have seeds for you either time.

kathy I'll be happy to keep them in pots till spring. I was wondering what you would do with them as well. I am probably getting to a point where I wonder if it's too late to be shipping living things anyway.

My cuttings are inside and ready to pot up. I think they'll be fine. If not, there will be more sedum outside in the spring. If you need to wait to send the seed that's fine too. Just easier to have all your seeds lined up and easier to plan the garden in advance. Whatever you feel best. ;)

This isn't Bishops Weed. They sell these in a few of the seed catalogs but pricey. I've only seen them called names like Snow on The Mountain, Old Man on The Mountain (which I think another gardener said was the name of this plant but in the seed books it's not called that).

They self seed here. Not invasive for me but they are beautiful plants. They really brighten up the garden with their cool colors - refreshing color. They look good around evergreens or Joe Pye Weed, something dark to really make the contrast pop.

Enjoy and I have a few more seeds that I can send out to the few I missed.

Ha - my joe pye is dependent on conditions, but it takes a year or two after sowing to get that high!

I don't cut my plants down till spring and new growth - I leave most of my plants up for wildlife use as shelter or for seeds.

I also leave my dead stalks for the birds. Joe Pye grows wild here but I would never start that from seed. I purchased or traded for the plant. You should post on the plant trading that you would like Joe Pye for postage or trade. IF I see them in the summer I will dig some but it will probably be then before I can find them along road sides. This is one plant I wouldn't want to wait on to grow from seed because it's so beautiful.

I didn't clean the seeds but the green pods will break open to little brown seeds. They germinate very easily so each little packet will give you many plants. It's just to much effort to clean some of these seeds - at least for me. I don't mind getting chaf in my seed trades because it all can go in the ground too.

Thanks- and I'm in the address exchange.

As for stratification on these seeds I don't have an answer - Alday sent me a question about these seeds but in my zone they self sow. Now that I will be planting seeds in another part of the yard I need to know if they need to be in the refrig (or back porch) before planting.

Is there a list of seeds that need stratification?
