Josephine, the Chiquita blue salvia looks wonderful. If still available, I would love it. Would you xeriscape it? What would you like from me? You can ask for more than 1!!!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Anna the Chiquita salvia is yours, I really have never seen it bloom, I got it at the San Marcos swap. I will check your list and see.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure Deb, the Pecan and Mock Orange are yours, keep checking my list, I will post my natives later on.
Could I please have a Serpentaria?

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

I have a few volunteer pecan saplings that have sprung up in my yard. If anyone wants them, I'll gladly dig them for you and bring them.

Plano, TX

please, please can i have the fig tree? stephanie gave me one last spring and it didn't really take--will try it in a different spot--i have wanted a fig for a while since i love them!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Of course Linda, the Fig is yours.

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Stephanie, sorry, but I couldn't find anything green at all on any of my heartleaf skullcaps. I might be looking for some myself at the next round up...

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

No problem, Dennis. Thanks for checking!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I think they go dormant at this time of year.

Wichita Falls, TX

frostweed -- will the mock orange and the bay laurel grow in zone 7? If so, I'd love to add them to my stash from you -- but, now I feel like a thief -- what could I possibly get for you?

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Oh, oh! Debbie, could I please have some of the curassivica seeds? (Hope I spelled that right.) What can I bring you?

I am also looking for poppy seeds, if anyone has them to spare.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

I have poppy seeds you can have Pattie. They are the breadseed or lettuce leaf type opium poppy.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Greta, I think the Mock Orange will be hardy in your area, but the Bay Laurel I don't think so, although you can keep it in a pot and bring it in when the temperatures go down to freezing, is that o.k. with you ?

Wichita Falls, TX

frowstweed -- yes, I'll bring it inside. On second thought how big does it get and what kind of light would it require? Thanks!

Since I've been in TX, I've had problems with tiny little moths in my dry food and nuts. I heard that putting a bay leaf in the container would benefit this. So, I thought I'd better grow my own supply. Sure don't like giving my food to the bugs.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

It can get very large, but in a pot it won't reach it's full size, so that is o.k. You could start with 1 gallon and them move it to a 3 or five gallon as it gets bigger.
What I do with the plants that are frost tender is I bring them into the garage during the low temperatures then I bring them out again, I don't keep them inside. but if you have a sunny window and want to keep it in during the winter, that's o.k.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

My mother used to put all of her frost-tender plants in the garage. Even if it was too cool to pull them outside, she'd lift the doors for a few hours to let them get the sunshine. Just a thought!

If Greta doesn't take the bay laurel, I'll take it, Josephine.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

O.K. we shall see what she says.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Hello Everybody, I have added these plants to my list, so please check it out.

What a nice list Josephine. May I have the Dwarf Barbadoes Cherry? I had one last year and lost it to the cold. (Promise to protect it!) And 1 frostweed please? I found a little snakeherb and blackfoot daisy while cleaning up today if you are interested.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure Anna, Barbados Cherry and Frostweed coming right up.
I will take the Shakeherb and Blackfoot please.

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine, may I have the Lizard's tail please? And a false Dragonhead too.

What is the difference between the Eastern and Western mist flower?

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Josephine, do you want white avens?

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Hi Josephine, can I have the coralbean and a balsam gourd?

Caddo Mills, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine,
Can I have a Dragonhead and a frostweed please? Tina



Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Catz, the east and west mistflowers are both blue, the flowers are very similar and they belong to the same family, but the leaf, growth habit, light and water requirements are very different.

The west Conoclinium gregii likes sun and blooms most of the summer
http://wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=CAVI2

The east Conoclinium coelestinum prefers a more shady location and only blooms in the fall
http://wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=COCO13

They are both lovely and great nectar plants for butterflies.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Tina, Dennis and Catz, the plants that you requested are yours.
Josephine.

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you Josephine. Thanks for the clarification on east and west :)

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine, I know you already have me down for a couple things but I would like to get a start of the E TX Mistflower since it blooms earlier.

Caddo Mills, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Josephine.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure Sheila it is yours.
You are welcome Everyone

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks, Josephine.

I have updated my "haves" list. Does anyone want anything?

Plano, TX

oh--just remembered something--i wanted orange ditch lilies after returning from visiting my daughter and enjoying seeing them everywhere in virginia
several kind folks at dave's offered to sent them this fall if i wanted --but first i want to check and see if anyone is bringing them to the round up------

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Hey Guys, I have added these plants to my list. Check them out. These are both larval plants.

4 Drummond's Aster, http://wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=SYDRT
3 False Indigo, http://wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=AMFR

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine, can I get a Western Ironweed? Mine bit the dust during the heat wave. I'm sure it had nothing to do with lack of water! :-0 And also an E. Texas Mist flower?

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Linda....I am sure I can supply you with orange ditch lilies. I have some that are definately in the wrong spot and need moved.

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Oh, I can't believe I'm the first to ask. Josephine, may I take one of your durantas?
