This is a good sign! Thanks for the new thread, Sheila.

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Cheryl, can I have an Englmann's daisy if you have any left?

I have a lot of stuff left, so please ask me if you would like anything. Especially the new folks... don't be shy!

Arlington, TX

Yes, I have one for you Dennis.

Seems goat manure is cold. Nice to know, I have plenty for me, but only one goat, probably not enough to do many people a lot of good. since my goat mainly poops on her straw, it's fairly free of weed seeds and ready to compost for sure.

Thank you PBTXLady for the blue salvia. On one hand I would like to try a columbine, on the other hand I have a history of black thumb with them. But this year's flower bed is much better kept than the last couple of years. If you can spare one. I can put it in the perennial part of a proper bed.

Gypsi

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

It looks like this thread is doing well already.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

I have several Passalong Pink crinums that have never bloomed for me. I'm ready to pass them along. Anyone interested? If not, they'll stay I guess. It's this one: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/140012/

Arlington, TX

Mine blooms but honestly its ugly. I have it near the pond and I cant figure out why it makes lots of small flowers that dont last long. I am ready to throw mine away! The reason I haven't already is its grown big and under some rocks so removing it will be problematic. I got mine from Calloways a few years back.
C

Rowlett, TX(Zone 8a)

Patti, I think what you have is Salvia Garanitica Argentine Skies. Kim gave me a start at a RU several years ago and it soon took over the area I planted it in (which in this particular case, is a good thing). I love the light blue color.

Carla

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Finally got my list together and posted!

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Sheila, I'd love to trade for your Red Yucca, Pitcher Sage, and Japanese Keria!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Sheila, if no one claims them, I'll take some of the tall Mex Petunias, but don't put my name on them until the end. Do the white spread as ferociously as the purple? My pinks have stayed very calm.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Dennis, do you still have any golden groundsel left? Can I have some if you do? Thanks!

(Carol) Euless, TX(Zone 8a)

I FINALLY made it back after a busy, busy week! Thank you all so much for the warm welcome! I just updated my list and added a few goodies. There are pics below of the no ID plants I'm offering (they were all pass alongs).

Now, I will try to answer everyone's kind replies. If I miss anyone, please sing out.

Frostweed - I would love a purple iris. I do have a few, but they may be different. May I also have a Brazos penstemon, a prairie phlox, and a golden groundsel?

Patrob - I will bring you a yellow iris and Stuttgart canna. May I have a Texas mountain laurel & twist leaf yucca?

Steadycam - May I have a redbud tree, magenta Louisiana iris, giant turk's cap, duranta & firespike?

Dfwdennis - May I have an elderberry, salvia coccinea, sedum & heartleaf skullcap?

Stephanietx - May I have a west Texas mist flower, mealy cup sage, obedient plant & monarda?

Gypsi - A lavender and a peach iris would be great. Thanks.

Sheilafw - I will have a Stuttgart canna for you. May I have a Mary Francis iris?

Pbtxlady - Yes, I would love a japanese iris. If you have enough, may I also have a black magic pup and a toad lily? If you are out, I understand.

Thank you all very much! Please ask for anything on my updated list.

Stephanie, I will pot some up for you. I also found a red columbine today, if you still want it.

Covenantgarden, I've got you down for your requests.

Unfortunately I didn't have any luck with the fairy duster. What looked like an offset didn't have any roots. I stuck it in a pot, anyway, but it doesn't look promising.

Carol, I have you down for Texas mountain laurel and twist leaf yucca. Thank you for the iris and canna.
Could I also have a start of your chocolate mint?

Fort Worth, TX

Covenant garden - I would love one of your pink crinum lilies in exchange for a peach iris and a lavender iris (scented on both, grape cotton candy - the lavender is bluish but the only lavender I can solidly ID where it is.)

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Covenant-Gotcha down!

Dennis, thank you for the groundsel and I'll take the columbine as well. No biggie on the fairy plant.

(Carol) Euless, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks dfwdennis & stephanietx!

Thanks patrob - I'll have a chocolate mint for you.

Thanks Gypsi - I'll have a crinum lily for you. To clarify, the ones I have are white with pink stripes. They smell wonderfully lemony!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Covenant, I put you down for the plants you asked.

Houston Heights, TX(Zone 9a)

Sheila, I would like some more Black and Blue Salvia, a tall white Mexican Petunia, an Ironweed and a pitcher sage and Japanese Kerria is you have another.

covenant, I have you down for your wishes!

golden groundsel looks nice. Do you have any more Dennis?

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Anna, I will see if I can dig up another golden groundsel for you. Fortunately, it only takes one to get a nice patch going. :)

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Got these people covered on the request:

Patrob…Red Yucca, Pitcher Sage, and Japanese Keria
Stephanie…Mex Petunia? The white isn’t as aggressive as the Purple and Pink. Their leaves are wider so they can be identified later.
Covenantgarden…. Mary Francis Iris
Steadycam… Black and Blue Salvia, a tall white Mexican Petunia, an Ironweed and a pitcher sage and Japanese Kerria

Here is my pic of what the mother plant looks like on the "crown of thorns". I clipped it back before I brought it in last year and almost all of the cuttings survived! I have enough for everyone..just ask.

Very Lovely Sheila.
Is your Pitcher sage Salvia azurea? If so, may I have one or two?
Thank you.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you, Sheila.

Midlothian, TX

Sheila, has anybody claimed the fern on your trade list?

:) --Austin

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Sorry Jo, it has already been claimed. If I get more, it will be yours.
Austin...the fern is yours.

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Gypsi, putting you down for a columbine. I think you'll find that these are very easy to grow.

Covenantgarden, got you for the Japanese iris, Black Magic, and toad lilies.

Dennis, if you have a lot left, does that include the sedum? I can trade you a couple (but I will have to look and see what the names are). Please look at my list and see if there's anything I can bring you.

Stephanie, I would love one of your pink crinums, if you have any left. Like Dennis, you're bringing me a lot--what can I bring you?

Sheila, may I have a couple of your West Texas mists? And a Blue Crown passi. I will also let you twist my arm for a crown of thorns. :) What can I bring for you? Water lily, maybe? EEs?

Adding a couple of things to my list: mid-size pink ruellia Chi-chi, flame acanthus, maybe a daylily or two.

Carla, you may be right about that Argentine Skies. I have wondered about that myself, but Kim didn't ID it. And, I have another from someone that WAS labeled Argentine Skies, which is more of an electric blue, so I have never known which is right. If they both are, that would be a pretty big color variation. Anyway, the one I have to share looks like this: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/125899/

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Gotcha for a crinum, Pattie!

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Pbtxlady, I will put you down for sedum. Do you have any of your dwarf "snowcap" daisies left?

Sheila, I have asked for too much already but Ive been wanting a crown of thorns for a while. Put me last but if any are left over, I'd like to have one or two. And THANKS for all the things you've given me already.

Rowlett, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes, Patti, that is the same Salvia Garanitica that I have (that Kim gave me). I planted one small plant next to my Black & Blue and it has now taken over completely. Not sure how or why that happened, but I don't mind. I love the light blue color.

Carla

Midlothian, TX

Thanks Sheila! Have a good one!

--Austin

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you Dennis!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Pattie....I have you down for crown of thorns, West Texas mist, and Blue Crown passi.

Marty.... Never too much. Adding the crown of thorns to your list.

I will see what is left later as far as wants, thanks.

Arlington, TX

Who said they were starting a new garden this year and I mean had moved to a new place?
Cheryl

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I think it was Michael, Perkoschilifarm. he moved to Ben Wheeler.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Cheryl....
GFWaco (Angel) has just moved to Waco area I believe.
