Pprice: All of my perennials are currently dormant and protected in the greenhouses until the winter starts thawing in my region. They will start growing in June.
I can send you some hardy sedums for you to plant in your garden in memory of your husband.

Please send me a D-Mail with your mailing address when you get a chance.

I would be happy to send some daylilies. What are your favorite colors for the garden? If you dont mind sharing your husbands name, maybe I can send one along as a namesake. D- mail me if you like. Daylilies scape in April and May, so you would want to get them in as soon as possible for this years bloom. I would not want to dig them once they have started scaping, hate to waste the bloom. If your not really up and running for planting that soon, I could send some in the fall for next years bloom. Good luck to you.

Everything is frozen, but I will happily send you some in the spring--bump this discussion up, and I'll fill a big box for you. I have some lovely sedums and herbs. I'll try to start a New Dawn and a Zephirine Drouhine rose for you, but I'm not the best with rose cuttings.

I actually went out this morning to try to do some daylily dividing, and moving some around. Its just to cold, with the wind, but do plan on getting to them this weekend.

With daylilies, you want to plant them like asparagus. Dig hole, put a mound of dirt in the middle of the holes, and set the crown of the daylily on top of mound and let the roots fall down the side of the mound. You want to keep that crown as even with the ground as possible. Crown rot is just about the only think that will kill a daylily, and once it gets rot, there is no fix for that.

I notice most of my tags have the names faded, so your guess is as good as mine as to what Im sending. Water is their best friend, just try to do it so the crown doesnt stay wet at night. They can also be prone to rust in the south, Im going to spray them before wending them, but its something you will have to keep a watch on. Just spray them when you spray your roses, they take the same care.

If you cant plant them right away, soak in a bucket of water, but again, dont let the crown sit in the water. As is done, I will have cut the leaves back for shipping.

Porsha, I'm so sorry for your loss. I just now ran across this post. I just love Dave's Garden, and our family of plant loving gardeners.
Do you still want or need anything? Do you like tall sunflowers? I have a gazillion! Also have a ton of green airplane plants.

I may just have to put some stuff together and ship it ;-)
God is good.
