Right now I have goji berry rooted runners to give and I have quite a few lilies of diff varieties , such as orientals , asiatic and orientrump don't know the names or colors. Their all in large pots and I'll dig and bring the bulbs if anybody wants any. I will have to cut off all the green on them though. Their pretty big right now.
I also have these things I can share:

Dragon tails pinella this is no longer variegated though.
Pineapple lily bulbs, different shaded colored leaves, maroon and green, I have not enough sun to make them bloom any more. will dig the bulbs and bring them if anybody wants them.
Can root or bring cuttings off the red or purple fire spike
can root or bring cuttings off about 9 diff varieties of sedum.
variegated solomon seal
I also have a few of the californea ee's

Just saving my spot.

1 clerodendrum bungei (also known as Rose Glory Bower, Mexican Hydrangea) already growing in a pot. It can be invasive but I have a nice bunch growing in a large pot to keep it from spreading and it is very pretty.

2 pink hardy begonias

1 salvia/sage (not sure which - came from Pine Ridge and I've forgotten what it is) The bloom looks a lot like hot lips but a totally different type foliage. Has a woody stem and the plant stays green year round. I accidentally broke a piece off early this summer and rooted it - so only one is available

1 anemone

1 small hosta
Y
Tall mexican petunia

I have a pretty begonia with pink flowers that cascades - this is not hardy outside - can bring a couple of cuttings

Hardy EE that will spread

1 White ginger

1 Confederate Jasmine

2 maybe 3 NOID brugs in pots

What I've promised
1 pot of hot lips (to be shared between Marilyn and Elaine)
1 white ginger (Trish) (actually bringing you 2)
Elena EE kathy ann
Salvia/sage marilyn
Hardy begonias Kim
Small hosta marilyn
Persian shield trish and friend
Japanese iris - Sandra

What I've requested
1 heart of the Jungle EE - Kathy Ann

I'm not going to be able to post a list since I'm not sure how much digging I will be able to do. I am laid up right now with a sprained ankle, torn ligament and having trouble with my achilles. On crutches.
I wish I could bring a bunch. I have another big bed I am doing away with this fall plus I am cleaning out many of the the others beds to streamline them. If I can get to that I will bring some of the big things that I know people will want.
If you know of something I have in particular that you want, let me know and I will get it dug.

I have some goji berry rooted runners i can dig and pot if anybody wants some, but just an fyi it takes 3 to 5 years for these to produce berries, there are also conflicting stories on weather or not they need the pollenator plant to get fruit, I have the pollenator but it's not producing runners, and i'm not getting berries yet either, my plants are 3 years old this year. so with all that in mind if you still want some I can dig for you . ;0) I have to clear them out anyway, their getting too close to my blueberry bushes, and seems they like to put off runners, 3 feet away from the plant for some reason. I'll look around to see what else I have out there, I lost alot this year. I just know I have the goji berries because I saw them when I was watering them the other day.

I have a few hot lips started too that seem to be doing well, so there should be plenty of those! :) I had started mine for Marilyn and Crissy before the last get together at Kim's but they were not established enough to bring then. I had several other things doing well too but Leigh missed some pots while I was gone to Dallas and that 106+ temps did some of them in quickly!! I hope to get out this next weekend once we get the kids moved in and see what else I might can root.

I have lost all my monardas, my phlox (except I still have the purple from Sandra) and so if anyone has any of those to share, I would love to have some. KA, I will gladly take Lilies too because I have PLENTY of sun!! :) Sandra, I would even love another start of the purple if you have plenty... I love it but it doesn't seem to increase much...I guess the mulch keeps it from doing so. I thought I could put a start in a different bed.

Here are a few things I can bring if anyone is interested

purple tall phlox
pineapple mint
dwarf fountain grass
sea oats grass
some mini daylilies, these are named, but names are not attached--I had to dig my whole mini bed up to get the grass out of it, and had a few left over when I replanted. I know I had Apricot Sparkles, Rosy Returns, When my Sweetheart Returns in there and a few more-but I did not even try to keep them separated, the zoysia grass was so bad, I had to seperate all the clumps to get all the roots out of the plants. Threw them all in a bucket.
Bulbs from a hardy glad-I call them apricot color
a few bulbs from the peruvian daffodil
ivy, variegated and solid color

So far on my list to bring
Genna --- purple tall phlox. Glad bulbs--daylilies
Marilyn --- purple tall phlox--dwarf fountain grass
Elaine--daylilies
Kim--hardy glad, daffodil
Trish--glad fountain. Grass, daylilies

OK, my garden isn't that big or great yet, but I do have a tropical bleeding heart (clerodendrum) I will try to root and pot up to bring.
You do have to overwinter it, and it looks like dried sticks sitting in your garage, but in the spring it leafs out and has the most lovely white and dark red blooms. It's mostly a shade plant too.

I forget what else I have to divide, but know I can bring cleome seeds if anyone wants them.

Elaine the pot of hot lips I have is enough for two people to share. You and Marilyn can share it. It's going to be a couple of weeks before I have time to dig anything. I'm like you all a lot of my stuff is just not as healthy as it usually is this time of year.
Some things I do know I will be able to bring are: white ginger, two different kinds of aguga, cloredendum (sp) bungii. The clorendendum can be invasive. I have a big clump in a pot and it does not spread that way. Do have some more that is not in a pot and it is spreading but is in an area that I don't mind it spreading. Will have to look around later.

Sandra I don't have Jacob Cline but I do have Raspberry Wine. However it looks pitiful. One patch looks like it does when it first starts coming up and another patch just came up and sort of lost most of it's leaves. I had very few blooms and it normally blooms like crazy, I don't know what the problem is this year with blooms. It's not because of lack of water. My water bill was $300 last month! I'm rethinking some of the tropicals I've been carrying over. I've had very few blooms on my tropical hibiscus. Some are starting to bloom now but not that many blooms. Some don't have any buds at all and they are in full sun. Not worth the effort of saving them. Think I'm just going to overwinter my Cajun hibiscus and buy new hibiscus next year.. I've had hibiscus every year for over 25 years and this has been the worst year ever for them!!

I also have 3 rooted cuttings of stictocardia, (hawaiian bell's vine) it's not hardy but it is beautiful if anybody want s one, they will have to over winter it though. I am also going to try to root some sedum cuttings, have about 9 varieties if anybody wants some, every kind but autumn joy lol

I have some hibiscus seed pods I will bring. Our hardy hibiscus did really good this year--it must be really hardy to have survived this summer, although we did water it. Here is a photo:

Hi guys, What happened with dirt bike I wwas making my first round around my sons track(my first time on bike incidently) was doing ok in the straight away but when i tried to go around the curve I let the bike slip out from under me. I didnt fall managed to stay on my feet but the bike fell to the left and the foot pegs( metal monsters with teeth)managed to grab my Rt leg..The lil one at the front did most damage.The back of my leg had 5 perfect scratches and the front had 4 scratches but it swelled immediately. It barely bleed, but i came in and iced it down for the rest of the day except when I went to church that night. I wrapped it tightly with an ace baandage but the swelling was already there.The first week I didnt go to Dr but it got infected. It feels much better but its still swollen and ugly..I managed t hobble around the mall and get school clothes for the boys yesterday, but it still swells from knee to foot if im up on it to long..The boys call me Ms Kneivil ha...Hard for me to believe the summer is over and school time is here again..I have one starting college and one in 11th grade.

I have enough of the fern to go around so I have those requested down for some..
Ms Marilyn I have you down for the cannas.

I also have a pink woodland phlox blooms in spring 2-3 ft tall really pretty if anyone wants a start of those..I will find a picture(hopefully not very organised with pictures on my computer) when i get in from church today so you can see it..It does wonderful in shaded areas, tho mine gets a lil sun...

Hope your leg gets better soon Trish!! My dirt bike incident when my son was young was not as bad as yours. I was against him having one and got over ruled! They had me get on it and ride to see how safe it was. I knew how to drive a standard shift but didn't know you didn't give a bike much gas as you let out on the clutch. Drove straight into a chain link fence with enough force to totally wrap the fence around the tire. I fortunately was not hurt at all and the bike was not damaged - just the fence! I rode it around the yard and that was my one and only time to ride a bike!!

Hi guys, I hope my leg gets better soon. They went in and lanced the big knot on side of my leg and of course it was full of old blood. They did it at bed side and didnt put me to sleep or give me anything except an injection in that area to numb it so when he cut I couldnt feel it.. He squeezed and poked and pulled out all I could stand. left the incision open to drain and heal from inside out.. Most of the redness has disappeared(IV antibiotics) but theres still quiet a swollen area tho not as bad as before. The surgeon said he thinks my body will absorb what left in the wound but will reevaluate it next week..i think it would have been better to sedate me and clean it out properly, but I dont think he thought it was as bad as it was till he got it opened up..Anyway it does feel better and can walk with out to much pain today if I dont stay up on it to long it doesnt hurt much anymore.. the Lord has blessed several times in the last 3 weeks with a rain so that kept me out of the yard dragging water hoses, you know I was gonna do it regardless of how much it hurt lol...Hopefully im on the med now and can go back to digging soon...


I have plenty of starts on the woodland phlox and the fern so I can bring it to who ever wants it when I get a lil better(to bad that isnt today because we got a really nice rain yesterday and I know the ground is soft and its calling my name)


Kathy I would love to have cutting of that brug..

Kim id love to have some red dragon and peacock fern plz..

I may be bringing a friend with me so I dont have so far to travel alone(DH doesnt like that idea of me on highway alone) I dont know if he thinks im in danger or that im a danger to others lol) She is my gardening partner We divide whatever we grow with each other that way if it doesnt survive for one of us the other has a backup...Tho hers usually outgrows mine, I have sand and its a job to keep things watered and alive because water just drains away.. She doesnt tend to have that problem. Anyway she is plant nut just like the rest of us...Ok I'm headed to church will talk to you all later..Trish

Kim will put you down for the hardy begonia.

Marilyn I really don't know the answer. The salvia/sage I've had for about 10 years and have long ago lost the tag. It does not spread from the roots. Like I said it has a woody stem and is more like a small bush. It doesn't get very tall. Don't remember if it is a sage or some form of salvia. Do you see anyone growing EE's around you? This one is hardy for me. I planted some out at Wildwood and it came back but hasn't done very well and we have an irrigation system there - very short and sparse. I find it needs lots of water to grow well. I planted some more at Wildwood this summer in a bog area we are planting and they are doing very well. It's a great one for a pond or bog. I have one in my koi pond and it is HUGE!

Marilyn in thinking more about the EE's it would probably be a wasted effort for you to plant them this fall. If you were to try them I would suggest starting them in the spring so they have te to get established before winter. Probably very iffy even at that,

We are members of the local county garden club but have only been able to attend one of their meetings this summer due to other obligations. I don't have room anywhere inside to overwinter outdoor plants so I would definitely need the kind that is hardy. I'll wait till spring to do anything about the EE's.

One picture shows the old woody part that a piece broke off from and I've never gotten around to cutting back. Now who can ID???

They are not 'hot lips' but I can't recall right now the name and we are at the lake. I'll try to look up the tags/names in the next few days when we get home. They are bright red. If they are the type you can take cuttings and root, I can try to root some if anyone wants some. I have one in a pot that I was planning to move to the garden this fall. It's gotten too big for the pot.

It was cute, but so many things here are dying, I just didn't have the heart to buy anything. I haven't been out to the nurseries much this summer, have any of you seen them? They also had a clerodendrum that was called musical notes, very cute, but figured it was tropical, I had never seen that one either.

I haven't been back to a nursery since it got so hot in July either. Too busy and it was too hot to plant anything. I want to re-do some beds so if I get some time this fall, I'll go looking again in a month of so.

Terrye gave it to me a few years ago and it has made it through the winter fine here. I have 2 different red salvias already Elaine, or I would want one too, I love salvias, now to see if the "wild thing" will root.

Marilyn, I don't guess you want any tall bearded iris since you have lots now, but do you want a Louisanna iris? I dug and potted you a couple of gaillardia today, not sure what color they will be as they are babies and didn't bloom this summer. I guess you are too far north for any ginger??

Looks like my link didn't work, here is the name to goggle. Salvia greggii. Wild thing

Thanks, ladies, for your help and suggestions. I have looked at a couple of different zone maps on the internet and they each had me in a different zone. The links you posted, Charlotte, make much more sense of it all. As I said, I will have some room in Al's man-cave to overwinter a few things but not a whole lot.

Sandra, thanks for the gaillardia. Yes, a Louisiana Iris would be nice, too. :o) but I better not try the ginger.

If there is a queen of the heart EE left I would like one to if they are gone no worries,
Who ever had salvia(except hot lips) I would love a piece of it if still available..I also would love to have a start of persian shield.. I would like to request a persian shield and salvia if available for my friend Cindy who is coming..Ms Marilyn she will also like some noid irises if you feel up to digging some

Cindy has 3 or 4 orange ginger if someone wants a start of that..Including a picture of it. She also has tall purple mexican petunias


I went back to dr yesterday he scrubbed out all dry tissue, he left the drain in for another 2 days. He applied a compression dressing to force out fluids left around the area so hopefully by the end of the week I will be on the mend.. It is supposed to be cooler outside and I bad need to do some weeding i have ignored the last month..

Trish I'll put you down for the Persian Shield. Can also bring one for your friend. I don't know if it will be rooted by then but I'll go ahead and try to get the cutting rooted. I have found that the leaves will really droop to begin but will perk up and take hold before too long

I keep my brugs in pots and keep in a very well lit building during the winter. I put a lot of my Persian Shield in the same pot with brugs. Only have to bring one pot in and one pot out for two plants and the Persian Shield thrives in with the brugs as both need lots of water.

I also have some dark pink 4 O'Clock seeds if anyone wants any.

KA, is the Heart of the jungle hardy? Or does it have to come in for the winter? If it is hardy, i would love to have one if it is still available...I don't have a greenhouse - no where to really overwinter things. :( Is the Heart of the Jungle larger than your Thailand Giant?? I hear those get huge - been thinking about trying one!

Trish, is the orange ginger one for sunny areas? or shade? I would love a start of it if your friend still has some. I guess assuming it will survive outside as well. I would like a start of the mexican petunias too please.

Due to everything that has gone on in August, I lost more of the things I had rooted. :( About the only thing I have left out of the things I rooted in June are the Hot Lips salvia... I have several starts of it in one pot - does anyone need any of it??

Elaine, I would love a start of the salvia if you are able to root it. I love the salvias and the bees and butterflies seem to love them too!

Thank you Terrye for the Yellow Rose of Texas. I hope to get this one in a spot with a stake or fencing or something around it to keep it from being mowed down! I was so proud of my one little bloom...then the whole plant disappeared :( ...

KA - what is a pineapple lily? I have plenty of sunshine...but not familiar with that plant!

Sandra, i have seen pictures of the Lo and Behold... I just love it! I did have some starts from my pink butterfly bush - but I think those are toast as well...

Well, I have been digging and potting up almost all day today. It was beautiful outside and I had to take advantage of that this afternoon. The other day I also took some cuttings of the Navajo Red woody salvia (3) for the folks that wanted it so here is what I have so far:

3 Navajo Red Salvia (fingers crossed they root)
3 Homestead Purple Verbena (also hope they root)
Daylilly 'Bama Belle' - 2
DL - 'Ida's Magic' - 2 or 3 I think
DL - NOID - light yellow - 3
Sedum 'Autumn Joy' - 1 very large and blooming and 2 very small
Penstemon 'Husker Red' - beautiful red/green foliage blooms white in summer - 1 large clump but can dig more if anyone wants
Penstemon - purple - can't remember variety - have 1 large clump dug and can dig 1-2 more if interested
Crocosmia - orange - have 5-6 or so bulbs, they spread pretty quick so this will be a good start, bloom in summer and the seed pods are interesting
Clematis 'Sweet Autumn' - 1, but I have a large plant and I'm sure I can root this if anyone wants.
Echinacea 'Rubinstern' (purple) - 1 small one dug so far but I can dig 4-5 if wanted.
Clump of Yellow Canna. I also have some coral, almost red canna if anyone wants it (plain green leaf) and I'm thinking of digging/dividing my tiger stripe leaf one (forget the name) that has an deep orange bloom if anyone wants some.
Does anyone want some hosta or some cleome seeds?

Seems like there is something else out there I potted but I can't remember now. The only thing I think is spoken for at this time is the salvia & I think Marilyn wants sedum so I'll give her the big one since she spoke up first. If I missed somebody speaking up, please let me know and I'll put your name on it so I won't forget when we get there.

Yes, and I have some 1 gal pots too if anyone needs. I used a bunch today and some small ones too, but I have a few of the small ones if anyone needs those and a few 5 gal. I always keep a few just in case. Can't wait to see you all!

Elaine, I would love some of the penstemon if you have enough, and I would love a start of the tiger striped canna... I had it but it was one of the ones in the far bed that I lost last year when I couldn't breath and couldn't drag the hose that far!! I would also be interested in some of the cleome seeds...never tried it but I think it is pretty.

I don't want to be a pig - but I would love some of the Rubinstern too if you have plenty. I had already asked for the salvia so if someone else needs some of the above that is fine!

After digging out grass all day yesterday, I think that my Crimson Flood DL is large enough to share if anyone is interested. Also, I know that my wedding feast DL had been really large, but there is barely anything showing now... would it already be dormant due to the heat???? I had planned to dig some of it to share...but I wasn't sure what was going on with it. IF anyone is interested in either of those DLs please let me know.

Genna, I have plenty of the penstemon, so I'll dig a good clump for you. You want one of each (purple and white)? I also can dig the echinacea. Just ran out of steam yesterday and wanted to see who wanted what before I went any further. Will also put your name on one of the salvia's I'm trying to root. There's plenty of cleome to go around. I'd probably just winter sow most of it so it will come up next year. Then you can move the seedlings where you want them when they are about 2-4 inches tall. It grows tall and re-seeds, so you'll never have to worry about it again except for transplanting the seedlings. And I'm happy to dig some of that canna too! I'll have to start my list, lol!

I'm always in the market for a new DL, so yes, Genna, I'll take a start of your Crimson Flood. If it's a small start that's ok. I think Sandra is planning to bring me some DLs too!

Thanks!

I won't be. I am digging judiciously!! I have let the penstemon spread to where I want it. Should have plenty for next year and I am thinning where I don't want it. When I dug some the other day I noted where I could dig another clump or 2 maybe if needed. And the Elizabeth Salter I had not touched yet so I'm good on that one for sure.

The Husker red with the white bloom is very plentiful. The purple one is much smaller. It is also in a more compacted clay-like soil that I can't seem to get to do better where it's planted. I'm just glad it's finally decided to take off.

Ok, Cindy's name will be on one of the calla lilies. I only have two dug and potted right now but will try to get some more dug up, as they need to be separated.

Hooray, I love zinnias! White, pink, red--all are beautiful!! I will have some moonflower seed pods and also some hardy hibiscus seeds for any who want them.

Anyone interested in any fushia 4:00s? I have several young plants that I can dig if anyone is interested? I might even have a couple of yellows...

I will have to check my hibiscus, Peppermint schnapps and see if it has any seeds... do they come back true from seeds??

Does the moonflower spread badly? I would love to have some seeds, but I didn't know how hard they were to manage. I don't need anything else that I have to fight - the weeds and grass are enough!!! I would like some of the hardy hibiscus too...do you know what colors they are?

Headed out to see what else I can find in the jungle that I might can divide...

I do have several seed pods on my peppermint schnapps if anyone is interested... just let me know. it has really been a great bloomer this year - it started sometime in May and is still blooming although today it only has about 6 blooms on it - instead of the 30+ that it has had on some days!

I discovered a Confederate Jasmine that had fallen over and self rooted. It's a pretty good start if anyone wants it. I've had mine for about 17 years and has done well. I planted it initially to cover a metal harbor but found it slower growing than what I wanted so planted Carolina Jasmine there as well. Suddenly one year the Confederate Jasmine just took off!! Here's a link to it.

Ok, I have been out digging in the rain... :-) I ended up with three of the Crimson Flood DLs - one promised to Elaine, and one to Trish... anyone want the extra?

Then I have two Wedding Feast DLs. This particular DL doesn't have a lot of fans left on it - it is already going dormant, but the underground bulbs look in great shape.

Then I have one large Indigo Spires Salvia. I forgot that I covered a piece that had fallen over back in June when I was taking cuttings to see if it would self root. It did - but that little stalk that had fallen over is now three feet tall with blooms...

I also took off several of the Peppermint Schnapps Hibiscus seed pods if anyone is interested.

Elaine, if you have extra penstemon and clematis, I would like a start, please, but don't go out and dig up any more just on my account--only if you already have extras.

Genna, we crossed. I would like the Indigo Spires Salvia, please and also the Peppermint Schnapps hibiscus.


I will have a start of one blueberry bush if anyone wants it.

I am getting ready to edit my "Give to" and "Getting from" lists in my first post on this thread, so please everyone go and look at it and see if I have anything available that you might want. Also, please check and see if I am correct in the list of plants I am receiving from each of you. I think I am going to have plenty of plants to bring home with me so I promise not to ask for anything else! In fact, I may not need to even go to Dabney's and Homestead! LOL I hope I am not being too greedy! "Oink, oink" :o~

I would love a few of those white zinnia seeds too if there are some left! And will take a few of those NOID iris you have Marilyn. Don't need too many as I've just dug some of mine to replant so I've got my iris work cut out for me.

Marilyn, I think you're right. We need to summarize what everybody is supposed to 'give to' to make sure we've got it right. I've been going back thru the thread to make sure I haven't overlooked something or somebody. I hope I haven't missed something. I'm marking the tags as soon as the football game is over.

As far as I can remember the only thing I've requested is a Heart of the Jungle EE from Kathy Ann.

KA - do you bring your fire spike inside? IF you have time, I would love to try a start of each color... it says it is hardy to 8a - which is my new classification... not sure if it will live over the winter or not, but I would love to give it a try. I can add it to my small shady area that I am trying to get a few plants in.

Thanks!

This is a heads up for--Elaine, Genna, Trish and Cindy---I put all of the daylilies I have for you all in paper lunch bags today. You will need to get them either planted or potted pretty soon. I knew if I tried to load all those pots to bring, I would not have been able to come ! I have them inside the house in the cool. They will be fine for a week, but wanted you to know that I am bringing them like this so you can be prepared.

Marilyn, I have a few daylilies for you too. I have a 5 gallon bucket of tall bearded iris 3/4 full and they are all trimmed. I worked on it all day today and I am pooped !

Trish if you have time--I realize it is late to be asking, I would like a start of your fern.
Genna I would like to try a few of your hibiscus seeds too

Kenny do you want anything from me???

Thanks, Sandra. I will be busy when I get home! And thanks, Trish for the white zinnia seed. I dug your Elizabeth Salter this morning! I think I'm done unless someone comes up with something else. I'm out of town Monday thru Thursday afternoon so that's just about it for me. And it's supposed to rain here too tomorrow and Tuesday. Yay!!

Thanks Terrye - although I sure didn't want you to push that ankle to get one! It will be good just to see you again ... it has been a long time!
Hope it heals up quickly for you - are you in a boot? When Kyle sprained his ankle really bad in football they made him wear a boot for 6 weeks almost like he broke it. The orthopedic dr said some bad sprains are worse than breaks sometimes. He also warned us to give it plenty of time to heal so that it would be less likely to reoccur.

Jim's yard is so nice, he really has it looking so good, I don't know how after this crazy hot and dry summer, but he and Kenny have done some hard work there.
I so much appreciate his hosting us and giving us a chance to be together for a while, it always seems like there is not enough time to talk to everyone, I always come home feeling that way though ! I hope Terrye is able to walk tomorrow she was limping bad when we got here.
Thanks for all the plants, food and for being my friends !

Okay, I have one more question: I managed to get home with a rose even though I didn't ask for one from anybody. I don't know how it got into my car but it did and I have planted it. Did any of you bring a rose to the RU? There was no label on it. I have been told that Hybrid Teas don't do well in our area so I hope it isn't a hybrid tea and I hope it will be happy in my flowerbed. :o~

Marilyn, I did bring a Rainbow Knockout. that may be the one you got.

Elaine, that flower is Rudbeckia triloba. Had to look it up. I had lost my label. I love it. it will reseed itself but you can weed it out easily.
