Here is the link to the instructions, directions and attendance thread.

Now let us trade away, and hope to find the plants we are looking for.

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

Here is what I have for trade. I have them in two categories, common and special.


Forsythia plants
Rootbeer plants
Javanese Glory Bower plants
Clerodendrum White Butterfly plants
Harlequin Glory Bower
Zebra Grass
Japanese Maiden Grass
Bananas Orinoco
Pink Garden Phlox
Violets large

Gingers Hedychium;
White Butterfly
NOID orange
NOID yellow
NOID unknown, does not get enough sun to bloom.

Gingers Curcuma
petiolata- hidden ginger


Brugs; doubles and rare singles.
Too many to name all, I'm just lazy and I don't know what will be ready to cut by then.


Tai Conch Pink
Dave Case
Dr Moy-limited


Panama Purple


pictus Red Stemmed

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.

That is the way it works BajaBlue & Glenna.
Just post what you have to bring or trade; and if there is something you are looking for put it there. We do a lot of pre-RU trading on this thread. You can also trade birdhouses, steppingstones, compost, potting soil, yard art and etc. for plants. No one is required to accept items, but usually do. Some have more plants than they have room for. LOL!
I would suggest to the new beginners to make a spreadsheet or list of the plants where you can put names of those you promise them to and of those that you are getting. It is very confusing on the day if you don't have a list and labels on your plants.
We always have plants that aren't promised ahead and make loads of trades at the RU also. After trades are made those items we don't want to take back home are offered up to anyone interested in our "orphans". They are a great way to give new gardeners extra plants.

Hutchins, TX

Thanks Charlene.

Glenna, I would like some of your Llama manure.

Fort Worth, TX

Reserving Space.

Will have:
Ruellia (mixed colors)
Brug Cuttings, possibly rooted (roughly 40 different variety's) What ever is over grown I will start cutting.
Pregnant Onions (Ornithogalum longibracteatum)
Some alocasias have a wide variety
**Aquatic Plants for aquariums. You would need to PM me.

Edit 9/21
We have garlic chives that are blooming.

Would like hearty ginger, we have white. The interest me.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Glenna, I can either bring you a cutting of Mexican Petunia or a rooted start (if I can get it to root). I'd be happy to do both just in case one doesn't work. I'd like to trade ya for some manure.

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

Hutchins, TX

Smaller pinker. Thanks.

And I think I better start a spreadsheet. This is amazing!!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

We usually use about three threads for trades they get so long and start pulling up slow. In other aint seen nothing yet. LOL!! So hang on it is a wild ride!!
We had about 60 people attend in April.

Plano, TX

i will be checking for names of my plants, potting them etc and so will try and list soon

cocobid--if you have any brug cuttings i would love to try some--i have tried 2 times and didn't work out for me--third times a charm right!? also i'd like to try the pregnant onion

charlene--would love a velvet cockscomb and since my tomato plants didn't produce (too hot? ) i would like to give fall ones a try

phyllis--ok-this is getting embarrassing--my mint died on me too-and who can't grow mint right?! don't know what i did wrong but can i give yours a try?

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Glenna, yes, I'm so sorry about the confusion! I can bring the Mexican HYDRANGEA for you!

Hutchins, TX

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Here ya go, Baja!

Hutchins, TX

Baja if you want one of these I have them.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Is this plant you are referring to called Clerodendrum bungei?

Rancho Santa Rita, TX(Zone 8a)

Yks for the irl for mx hydangea,

Didnt know it is called that just knew
it as cashmere bouquet

Would love some Phylliss .
Thanks for offering!

Arlington, TX

Well I am overwhelmed by names of plants I have not grown. Live and learn. I suppose one day I might know some of these plants personally. I hope to have a few:
flame acanthus (more red variety)
small spineless prickly pear
M. petunia (and I mean petunia)
Cholla sp. (I think that is what they are)
All are under way and hopefully will be doing well by Oct.
Any books that might help me learn more of the plants I can grow here, both native and adapted?

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

I could bring Mexican Hydrangea and Mexican Petunia both but prefer to spray with Roundup. If I dig them up I may miss a small piece of root, which means I will I will have more to come up shortly. We have a very large yard with no grass but lots of plants and I have no place for either plant. They don't just spread, they take over, leaving little room for for the plants I love, Gingers, Brugs, Bananas, EE, etc....

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Lovely Ginger Ken, does it have a name?

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

'Aussie Plume'. Maggi picked it up at SFA Spring sale and she bloomed the first year. Some Gingers need to get well established before they bloom, Scarlet Fever being one of those. Then again, SF is worth growing just for it's foliage.
