Hey, Lottie! Did you ever find the saxifraga 'tricolor?' I bought one f/Logee's, but it didn't pan out too well. I'd like to find another, and if you HAPPEN to have a stolon plantlet.......well..........;-)

Oh, no! Sorry, kathyvm--this is an OLD post from last year....I should have Dmail'ed MsCritter--oops!

Although, she may not have found all of her wants, and you may have a "taker!" Nice looking thunbergia, by the way.......is it perennial? I may have to trade something to you!!

Opps. I didn't notice the date on the first post either.
I'm not sure what zone it's hardy to. I just know that it's not hardy to mine in zone 5. It has blossomed all summer for me so I just can't let it die now. I will overwinter it. It just needs to be trimmed. It stands 4 foot tall and it's a very fast grower.

Hey ladies,
Kathleen,Nope I didn't find the "Variegated Strawberry Geranium" yet... I can buy it but at a pretty price so I've passed til I can find a trade on it. If I get one you know you are always welcomed!

Hamburg, PA(Zone 6b)

MsC started this thread for Saxifraga. I was asking her if she would consider that one...

Aurora, TX(Zone 8a)

OH, I'm sorry.......thought you were talking to me. I'm on the scout for MsC and myself.......posted on behalf of the both of us elsewhere. Sorry for my confusion. Lottie will love it, I'm sure!

Did you ever find t he tri-colored one?

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I got my variegated strawberry geranium last year at gosh the name escapes me, for like 4.00 I'll find out where I got it and post back here. I stored mine in the garage as I wasn't sure if it was hardy, if it comes back I can trade you for some later on critter, Actually there are several plants in the pot now but if it spreads more this spring, I'll be able to trade it off some.

i'll go fnd that web site now and post where I got it at.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Found it, They don't have good feedback in the watch dog, but I didn't have problems with them when I ordered last fall. In fact he shorted me a plant and I contacted him and he refunded that plant he didn't send.

I bought 2 of the strawberry begonias tricolored, and he only sent one, just forgot the other one is all.

This is a super hard plant to find, and I looked everywhere to find it, low and behold he had it dirt cheap here. It's a beautiful plant when full grown.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

LOL I just looked at the date on this thread, someone had to go back a few pages to find this thread.

Carlisle, PA(Zone 6b)

Kathy, I just got the golden Strawberry Begonia at a nursery last Saturday. When they start putting out stolens, maybe we could trade for baby plants. Let me know & thanks.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I got a golden one too, I forget the name of it, I'll have to go out and check, I did I think, loose my loddon's pride saxifrage, doens't look like it's going to come back, but it's still early yet too, that one is awesome looking.

I'll check on the name of that golden one I saw it out there today and it was coming back full force.
