This is the spot to put the plants you have to trade, and what you'd like to have, for the Spring Roundup on Saturday,May 26th!
Spring Roundup Plant Trade List
For trade, so far I have
1. Canon Wentworth Linaria
Tall, about 3 feet, with grey-green leaves and light pink flowers. The flowers resemble teeny-tiny snapdragons (to me-- you can tell I never took a horticulture course in my life.
Here's a link to a DG photo that looks like mine. Self sows freely.
2. Summer Snowflake
Bulbs. Like a snowdrop on steroids. Once again, a handy-dandy link to real info. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/53286/
3. Sweet woodruff ground cover.
Ric- Summer snowflake
Celene-- linaria, lady's mantle
Marcy-- Summer snowflake.

I'll claim a spot here.
Many many different Aroids
I've been looking for Summer Snowflakes.
Count me in!

Ric: A. elegans
Fallopia Japonica 'Variegata'-couple of plants
Sedum "Love and Tangles"
Pot of Kentucky Colonel Spearmint that *someone* wanted
Aristolochia Elegans--Ric, was this for you? I think so?
Possibly Basella rubra, if my seedlings mature as planned
Ipomoea indica plus some mixed JMG--not sure what they'll be since they're cross-pollinated, but they'll be different and cool.
Brand new iron skillet (not the shape I wanted)
Tall metal bulb planter, the kind you use your foot to sink into the ground, turns out I'd rather use a trowel.
Sedums/Sempervivums I don't have
perennials with yellow or grey foliage, if they'll fit in my bed
Begonias or gesneriads I don't have
Other stuff I don't know I want yet
Helenium Tie Dye

It's round, it's just shallower than I need, I wanted it more for baking, it's about 1" deep. It's a Bobby Flay brand. (so embarrassing, what can I say)
I needed one for baking also. Those are good for steaks, but we don't have steak too often. LOL Lou
I can text you a photo if you want. Or post it here, if everyone wants to see.
Lou, I still have a small start of Aglaia odorata--was that for you? Did I send you yours?
I got one from you , I just don't remember when.LOL It is doing good and blooming. Thanks! Lou
Could I have Begonia convolvulacea and Sinningia sellovii? I have you down for lady's mantle and linaria.
I'm interested in purple coneflowers, variegated Solomon's seal and pink coreopsis.
I should have more idea what I have soon. I've been out there potting up, most of the day. I know I have some stuff to add. :)
Lou could we get some Coreopsis 'Zagred'?

We're heading out to start potting and dog proofing....lol!

Marcy, I added some more plants. And LOL about the ferns.
I'll go ahead and pot you some of the vines. The seeds came up in like 2 days. I have to keep some put back for a sale but whatever isn't ordered by the 12th, will be added to my list.
Please beg Dave to drive! PLEASE! You are more than welcome to stop here again. I know it adds to the trip for you but it also gives you a break and puts you back on 68 which I thought wasn't a bad drive for you?
I'm not opposed to renegotiating a meeting site for next year so long as the 'elders' from the 4 corners agree. ;) I had mentioned Cowan Lake a couple of years ago and it was shot down but I don't remember why. My 8 year old went to a sleepover party at a cabin there last weekend. They are really nice.
Celene I have a pretty varied bunch of Aroids now.
Mostly C.e. varieties, Alocasia and some UnK Xanthes.
Lime Zinger, Black Coral, Diamond Head, Black Magic and Runner, Mojito, possibly Stingray, Big Dipper......
Hmmm...I have other aroids, the philodendrony indoor ones. I have real skill at killing the Colocasia/Alocasia and similar over winter. Though this year I wintered over one of the black foliaged ones successfully.
Someone wanted a Plectranthus ernstii...the bonsai plectranthus, it gets kind of a caudex. Was it here?
NOID hosta and i do have some hacksaw hosta ,
Ferns Jap painted ferns and some Ostrich
NOID Coral bells
astilbe's amythyst , gloria,gladstone
clethra alnifolia sixteen candles
campenula la belle
that stuff called Hot Lips ? Joyce knows what it is .
Liriope big blue
still digging :)
Please be patient with me as my mind is still in a fog ,but i will do my best to make sure i remember who gets what.
Tobasco. ferns, coral bells, campenula , clethra
Chelle hacksaw hosta
Ester clethra sixteen candles

What I have:
glass flowers, glass mushrooms ( I made these today I hope they don't break in the annealer) maybe a few other glass things I don't know. plastic window boxes orange and grey. The flowers and mushrooms are different colors pink blue yellow purple red etc.
What I want
red day lilies
purple or blue siberian iris
blue flag iris (for pond)
astilbe (amythyst preferred Not white)
perrenial aroids that like shade
allium (purple or blue)
wake robin (red trillium)
lily of the valley
lenten rose (dark red preferred)
soap (lilac or lavender or any old thing)
Shadowgarden, I have garlic chives if you are interested. They look like chives, but have a distinct garlic flavor. I cut a bunch eacvh year and chop them and store them in the freezer for all my Italian stuff. I never learned to cook with herbs and spices , so they and green onions are the only ones I use. But then, I don't cook much.LOL I can also bring red day lililes. Pretty, just no ID.
I have plenty if anyone else is interested.
I also have miniature hostas, rose campion magenta, creeping thyme, hardy hibiscus(Pink),and one rooted start of akebia vine.(Chocolate vine).
I'm looking for a not to invasive agasthe, salvia, any except purple, any elephant ears. I also have walking onions if anyone is interested. Lou
Yes I'll try the garlic chives and the red day lilies would be great. I am fighting back against the deer who eat my lilies and I read that if you plant chives around them they will leave the lilies alone. Would you like a mushroom or a flower of a particular color or would you rather pick out one I bring.
Shadowgarden, what cranesbill would you like? I have some biokovo with a light pink flower and a low growing habit. I have some bluish purple that is much taller than the biokovo, but it was here when I bought the house so I don't know what type it is.
Rebecca we have plenty of Lily of the Valley for you and purple Siberian Iris.
Yes, Yes, I will take everything. I would like the purple cranesbill more. That black gamecock is georgous! I am so excited!!
Celene, I am interested in your aglaia odorata and Coccinia indica.
I can give you something I bought as golden majoram, and I find it is also called Gold Crisp oregano. I also have a dwarf Lady's Mantle which I can probably divide.
I am potting up stuff as I prune and thiin in the gardens. I seem to have a lot of the stuff Dispatcher already mentioned. Plus:
Lots of Tri-color Variegata ornamental hot pepper seedlings - Celene, Chele
Bleeding Heart Dicentra formosa - Rebecca, Lou
Hardy begonia - Chele
Black mondo grass - Marcy, Chele
Green mondo grass

I'd happily trade for some dwarf lady's mantle and a tricolor pepper.
The coccinias are sprouted, and hardening off outside. I can't wait to make oil pickle, in that "counting my chickens before they are hatched" kind of way.
Esther...I would love some black mondo grass! What can i bring you?
I have about everything there is i think...lol! Except contorted hazel...lol.@ Chele!
I have this chimney tower/pot planted with blood grass...and want to put black mondo around it...saw this in a magazine ...or somewhere...and really liked it.
Rebecca...I have one hardy geranium that will spread like crazy....if thats what you are interested in...and it loves the shade too. It has pink flowers....dont know the name of it.
Marcy yes that sounds good. Esther I would like some bleeding heart. Thanks.
Good to see you Esther! Are you getting my emails?
I'm interested in:
Tri-color Variegata ornamental hot pepper
Black mondo grass
Do I have anything you need? Was it you that was looking for Oakleaf Hydrangea a year or so ago?
Ok, I am making a note of the requests and will be editing my list above. Marcy, you wouldn't happen to have any Pulsatilla (also Pasque Flower, Anemone pulsatilla) do you? I seem to have lost an old plant and 2 new 2011 purchases.
Chele, when did you email me? Last time was August 2011 - I just checked the gmail address (which I hardly ever use). I was looking for a "Little Honey" hydrangea last year. I can probably dig up volunteer trees and make cuttings of various shrubs for you just before the RU.
I can bring contorted hazel cuttings if anyone wants to try starting them. I have failed to make new plants after trying for many years.

Ok..after making the statement I have about everything...lol...no..Esther...I don't have pasque flower...im sorry!!
Name something else!!
We have 8 Colocasia 'Diamond Head' to trade.
It's the second blackest Aroid out there. Actually have electric blue veins in the right light.
It gets HUGE w/ the right conditions and overwinters dormant quite well.
'Black Coral' is the deepest black but it's just not pupping at this point.
