Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Charlene, did you give me some of the Moss Verbena last year?
I have this plant from you with very fine foliage that is almost evergreen, is that the moss verbena? and do you know it's scientific name?
I really like it but I need to know the name.

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Charlene, I'll sign you up for the wahoo bush.

By the way, I found several related plants with the word "wahoo" in the name. The one I have is euonymus atropurpurea. Here is the link:

Is this the one you want?

North Richland Hills, TX

Here's my list so far

Caladium bulbs (mixed varieties)
Okra starts (dependent on how many survive for transplant)
Irises (noid)

I also plan to brew up some aerated worm casting tea

and, for the brave, I can supply some chicken poo - as you know this is a great compost activator!

Hardy, drought tolerant perennials and edible plants

Gives this far:
Charleneplants: Caladium blubs, chicken poo and plastic bags.
Loonie: Chicken poo
Josephine: Chicken poo

Dennis, that one is fine. I have never seen one of these before and think it would be an interesting thing to have.

You didn't say how many incarnatas you wanted, so how many?

Of course, once one of them takes root, you will have plenty, I'm sure you know already.


Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Charlene, one should be good since I am getting another one from Josephine. Thanks!

I have never seen wahoo bushes at a nursery, either. The ones I have are rescued from the park near my house. They are pretty conspicuous in the fall with their brightly colored fruit and good fall color, and I found a few groupings at the edge of the wooded area. There were a few volunteers that were popping up on the edge of the mowed grassy area, so I potted them up before they got mowed or weed wacked. I can see if there are any more if anyone else is interested.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

That is an interesting tree Dennis....Please see if there is a little one for me. My list will be along later.

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

I will look for some extras when the weather improves a bit.... :)

Dennis look for one for me also.

(Elizabeth) DFW Area, TX

I'm not growing anything this year but lazy.

By the time fall rolled around last year, between the mildew and the roof rats and the bugs and the two weeks of dark, gloomy rain just when my melons needed bright, sunny rain, I felt like I'd been run over by Mother Nature's Disaster Dispensing truck.

I am pretty much DONE with serious attempts at gardening - to be honest with you, I haven't even done my fall cleaning, yet.

I'm going to put in a few vegetable plants this year, some vine fruits and strawberries and then I'm going to sit inside and quilt all summer. :)

I would, however, like to find someone who raises red wigglers - if you do, and you're willing to bring a couple of pounds to the round up, I would like to buy them. :) I have tons of cold compost and thirty bales of rotting hay lying around and I figure that a few thousand worms will take care of it all by the end of summer. Maybe by next fall, I will find a little gardening gumption, but at the moment, I'm just not stout-hearted enough. ;)

See you at the Round Up! :)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Oh Elizabeth, it is just too cold right now and it feels like it will never be warm and cheery, but things will change, you will see.
In the meantime keep warm and safe.

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

I don't have all of the fall mess dealt with either. I have some done, and a lot more not so much done.

When it warms up a bit, I'll be out and about it again. I have to get ready for spring! I can hardly wait to sit in my swing and watch the birds chasing my cats and hear them singing in the trees.

It will come. God's plan of the seasons surely makes us grateful to see the next season come. We tire of one thing just in time for the next one to come around.

Spring is a time of awakening for life itself and I think it is the best time of all!

Summer is a time of vacations, swimming, fishing and lots of wildflowers, hmm that may be the best of all!

Fall, is so full of color, and change, and the air seems to take on a new fragrance. My husband loves the smell of burning leaves. Colorful mums everywhere! Sweet autumn clematis, umm the smell! Maybe that is the best time of all.

Now winter, since we are at the time of getting tired of it may not seem to have it's thrills right now. However, cuddling up by a fire, a hot cup of cocoa, don't forget Christmas, Valentine's day, and kids playing in the snow. That could be the best time of all.

Maybe it is always the looking forward to change that is the best of all. Ain't God great!!

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Josephine, yes I did give you some. It's not a Tx native. It is from South America, but has naturalized here. It's name is Verbena tenuisecta.

It will root at every section (especially this time of the year). Just find a set of leaves and cut the stem at the top of the next section of leaves. This gives you about an inch of stem. Poke it in some damp soil or vermiculite (it's not particular) and turn around, then turn back and it's rooted. Well almost that fast!

If you plant it in the ground it will spread. If you want a pretty hanging basket, put about three starts and when it starts to spread, wrap a ribbon around the stems to make them droop. Once they are set in the droop position, they are really pretty when blooming.

They will not bloom if you use fertile soil or fertilizer. They will only put on more foliage instead of flowering. If you want flowers you must neglect it, and only water when dry, and never fertilize.

If you use it as a ground cover, you can walk on it.

Now everyone who wants some, let me know!


Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you Charlene, it is very pretty and certainly easy to propagate, I was hoping it was the native Verbena, and I needed to know for sure.
I hate to tell you, but it is on the Texas Invasives list.
I think I will grow it in a hanging basket to keep it contained.

Caddo Mills, TX(Zone 8a)

I might be bringing some potting soil from the container forum, some brug fert from the brug forum and some brug cuttings that I have extra of. I will know more the closer that we get. Tina

Once I figure out how to do it, I will have at least 1 Monstera cutting. I'm still unpacking boxes so hopefully I will find the seeds I bought although I'm buying more just in case.

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Charlene I would love some your Verbena tenuisecta. That hanging basket idea sounds gorgeous. Oh yea and my favorite color is purple ;)

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Gotcha Catz. I love purple also!

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Josephine, I got my start of verbena from the roadside. I have looked at Verbena Glandularia which is a Tx Native and at Verbena tenuisecta which is not a Tx native. I cannot tell the difference in the two of them. They look identical to me. You have a look and see what you think.

I do have a cousin who's DH is a professor of botany and is a specialist in plant id. If I get to see him this August at the family reunion, I will ask him to give me a positive id. It will just have to go as moss verbena for now and be a noid until I get a confirmation.

Professor Larry Brown is willing to come and do a talk for us if I have another RU here at my place. That is a possibility for this fall. He has identified many plants and discovered at least one unknown plant to his finding. He has traveled the world identifying plants.

I don't actually "know" him that well. His wife is my first cousin and I see his daughter every year at the reunion, but he and his wife haven't been attending. They may attend this year so, I may get a chance to show him. Otherwise, I may just mail him a plant and let him id it for us.

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Charlene :)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I have tried to compare them too, but they are very similar, I think one of the main differences is in the growth habit, also the native Verbena is a little more hairy and stout.
But I bet the native one doesn't root as easily either, woudn't you know? what you want the most is the hardest to get, I think most things in life are like that, don't you?

Arlington, TX

I don't know what I have left to trade but is it ok to bring what I have and take my chances lol?

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Charlene, I don't have a whole lot at the moment. I have started some seeds so we'll see how they do until the RU but if you want to look on my haves list I'll be glad to give you anything on there in return.


Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure it is O.K. to bring what you have Cheryl, as of right now I really don't know what I will have for trade either, it is too cold and most things are dormant.
Charlene, are there some plants that Dave and Trish don't want?
I am asking because I was wondering if they only want the plants on their list.
Please see if you can find out about that.
