Wants; forgive me for not having a list of what plants I have but what I want is plants I do not have.

double Brugs
named Iris
named Daylilies
Japanese Maples
Dogwoods, prefer colored
Toad Lilies

Yes, I do want a lot but as anyone who has been to our home can tell you we have lots of rare and unusual plants and are usually pretty loose with them. The common stuff just does nothing for me. If you have something that I really want, I will trade double or triple to get it. If you have nothing on my want list but you can get it at a local nursery and want to spend the money I will really try to more than make it up to you. If you have nothing I want and can not afford to buy it, I will still try to give you something you will enjoy. Anyone who wants to come by our home is welcome at any time and I will send you home withsomething you will like. Thanks.

blackraven2- Gingers, Brugs and EE

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Charlene - I have a few different types of amaryllis that I'll bring you - I think I remember you asking about a Red Lion, which I have and I have what I think is Apple Blossom and somethin' else...can't remember the name right now...but I'll have it soon. I have a low growing
ginger - some call a Peacock Ginger - its name is Kaemferia pulchra that I'll be glad to bring some for you (pic of flower attached)

I'd like a bag of the compost please, if still available Thanks! I'll be posting my other "haves" soon...when I get a list together,...maybe I'll have some other things you'd like as well! Lee

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Oops,...forgot the picture of the Kaempferia pulchra

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Well, Lee, I read your d-mail before reading this. How about two bags of compost for all of the trades you are offering?

BTW how is your snake bite injury? Have you made a complete recovery with no lasting effects?


(Phyllis) Flint,, TX(Zone 7b)

I know I have Mexican petunias, red salvia to share and my lions tail finally came up but after the wedding I will kick into gear and go through things to know better what I have to share

Lee thats a lovely lil flower

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

Lee, there are lots of Kaempferia pulchras, do you know the cultivar? If not do you have a picture? I would be interested in a piece of this, if you have enough after taking care of Charlene. I have lots of Gingers you may be interested in. Thanks.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Hello Everybody, I have posted my plant list, please check it and see what you might like.

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

Hello Josephine I would love the fig. It is not on your want list but I have lots of Gingers.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure Ken the Fig is yours, it is small but it is rooted. You are already giving me the Sassafras.

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

I know but I am trying to get you hooked on Gingers. My bad.

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Josephine, I have plenty of the Salvia coccinea. That is the plant that you first identified for me as TX betony and it turned out to be the salvia coccinea. Is that the one you are wanting? If so, I'd love to trade for your salvia guaranitica. I have some that has already been potted up for a while and is growing in a one gallon pot.


Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes, that is the one, the Salvia guaranitica is yours.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Ken - I was told it is K. pulchra mansonii....but I'm not anywhere near knowledgeable enough to be certain....that's the extent of my info...the picture is shown right below the intitial posting....having perused the Plantfile page...I saw what looked like other photos that looked like my plant's flower....I thought it was somewhat common....with so many other photos....but regardless,....I'd be very happy to give you some!! I've had this for several years....since I was 1st stricken by the "metal flake" effect of the flowers coloration.

Charlene - hey girl,....2 bags of compost is wonderful! Thanks for asking about the snakebite......doin' very well more noticeable
effects....except, perhaps,...a bit more wisdom (smile)....and a little less bravado/recklessness

Phyllis - Yep,...the flower is what initially caught my eye....the foliage reminds me of that of a "prayer plant" type...with the subtlely striped
leaves.....goes dormant during winter and sprouts back out about late spring each year....I hardly water it during winter.
BTW - if you have any Lion's Tail available down the road....I'd like a sample! Thanks!

sorry I'm late getting my list up...I'll try to get that done within the next couple of days Lee

(Phyllis) Flint,, TX(Zone 7b)

Lee I will grab a small one for you not a problem
do ya have any of those extra?
I do know I am looking for drought tolerant and perennial plants
I have yet to get my full lit of what I have to share up but after this weekend I will get er done LOL

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Phyllis - Yes I'll have some for you! Thanks!

Josephine - I'll have some 4 Nerve Daisy for you!


Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Phyllis, most of my plants are drought tolerant and are perennials. Which ones do you prefer?

Do you still have any cane? If so, I'd like to have some plants or poles or both.


Baytown, TX(Zone 9b)

Phyllis I would love both bamboo to plant and some poles. But not as big as the door prize when I was there. Mine is a small truck. I still have my sign with my screen name. I love it.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you Lee, what wold you like from my list?

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

A Mex Plum would be nice! Thank you, Josephine!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

O.K. Lee, you got it.

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Lee but I already have that one, so how about I bring you a different one. I have about 8 different ones and 1 Cornukaempferia.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Would be great, Ken....hopefully, I'll have somethin' else you'd like! 'til later, Lee
