Will trade Milkweed seeds for Wafer Ash seeds

Monroe City, MO(Zone 6a)

Good Afternoon! I am looking for someone who would be interested in trading some of their Wafer Ash Tree seeds (Ptelea trifoliata).
I have three varieties of Milkweed seeds to trade in exchange:
Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)
Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata)
Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa)

Our Garden is a Certified Waystation with Monarch Watch and we grow all three varieties in our Garden. In 2016 we released 315 Monarch Butterflies with 200 of those being tagged. We gave away many Monarch eggs to local teachers for their classroom as we are always ready to #HelpSaveTheMonarchs.

This year we are including Giant Swallowtail Butterflies in our efforts as each year we are seeing more and more GSwallowtails show up in our Garden to feast on the nectar of the Milkweed blooms and other flowers.

I've included photos of Giant Swallowtails visiting us in 2016, and some of our Monarch caterpillars! Enjoy!!
Thanks for your help! ~ grannyh.

Sorry I don't have a Wafer Ash to trade but I would suggest Common Rue ( http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/312) as a annual for a Giant Swallowtail host. Beware of the skin/ allergic properties of this plant but it certainly is liked as a Giant Swallowtail host.
