When it cools off a bit, I'll get out in my gardens and start thinning out my plants again. I will send out one box of miscellaneous plants to someone who needs them, if you'll pay postage. Postage will be around $15 or less, depending on which box I fill up. You can send cash or pay by Paypal (send payment as a "gift" so I don't have to pay fees on it). Don't send now; I'll tell you the exact cost when I box up the plants.
Some of the plants I'll send are:
Clerodendron Bungeii - Glorybower, Mexican hydrangea
Physostegia - Lavender Obedient plant, false dragonshead
Various Mints (Blackberry, Spice, etc)
Stachys (Lamb's Ears)
Passiflora Incarnata (Passion Flower, Maypops)
Maybe daylilies and irises
Pond Plants if you have a pond
Whatever else I find that is in abundance
I can send seeds too if you're looking for something in particular.
All my plants are perennials, drought tolerant, and easy to care for. My entire yard is a garden and I "plant them and forget them". They're all sun or part sun lovers because I have little shade. If you're making a memory garden or just like certain plants, name a few and I'll try to include them if I have them. Tell me a bit about your garden or your style or climate and I'll try to custom make a box just for you. I'll label everything with their names so you'll know who's who.
If you live nearby and would like to come and get a carload of plants, let me know also. I can load you up. We're widening our paths and paving seating areas, so we'll be taking out a lot of plants. If you're willing to dig, we can give you a "garden in a trunk". I'm in Jonesboro, AR, about an hour from Memphis.
It's still around 100 degrees here, so it will be about another month before I'm out digging. I'll try to choose someone within the next couple of weeks so we can discuss what your garden needs are.
