Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Hello Everybody, I am now in the process of startin cuttings to root for the Swap.
I would like to know how many people would be interested in these, so I don't end up with a lot of plants left, to take in and out all winter.
I can root cutting of;

Western Ironweed, Vernonia baldwinii

Purple Coneflower, Echinacea purpurea

Carolina Phlox, Phlox carolina

West Texas Mist Flower, Eupatorium greggii

Heath Aster, Aster ericoides

I have other plants, but these are the ones I need to know about.
They are all Texas natives and they are all perennials

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

I'll take a piece of Eupatorium greggii. I assume it will make it in a big clay pot to keep it dry. Do you still want beautyberry? I need to start those if you do. I don't know what else other than the hyssop I'm doing yet...have ya'll changed the date yet to Sunday for Mitch?

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

We haven't changed the date yet, we are afraid thar if we change it some people may not be able to come.

Maybe we should take a poll?
My cuttings will be rooted, hopefully, and yes I will save some Eupatorium for you.

I could use some Hyssop and the Beautyberry.
Thank you, Debbie.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

Are we having fun yet?

Lindsay, OK(Zone 7a)

Would you be willing to start that thread? That would be wonderful! Thank you Mitch

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes Debbie that would be very helpful, to have to poll, and let us see what happens.
On the Beautyberries two is plenty, thank you. You are a sweetheart.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

I'll start that thread and tally---look upward folks--I'm just adding to that one. =)

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

If you are reading this thread--please go here and vote on the proposed date change:

Nevada, TX(Zone 8a)

Debbie, I have crinum Summer Nocturne and crinum scabrum for sure, maybe Ellen Bosanquet and JC Harvey. Also have an unknown crinum, looks like an Americrinum but flowers are white. (Rescued from lot destroyed by fire, this is a tough plant!) I will check others for offsets. Would love to swap for Clerodenrum incisum and Clerodendrum ugandense.

Sheila in FW - will bring you a vitex

Josephine, would also like Eupatorium greggii.

I'll post an updated list soon.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

Dawn; I would love to have crinum scabrum and the unknown white (with a history like that it's got to be a winner!). Will update up above to add you to the list and get started rooting.

Lindsay, OK(Zone 7a)

I am bumping this back up! If you have not done so please post your plants!!

Boerne new zone 30, TX(Zone 8b)

I'm trying to make it up there. All I KNOW I can have is small pecan trees, chocolate mint, lemon grass, rosemary (trailing), Chocolate flower seeds (maybe) and Maximillian seeds (maybe). I haven't ever done cutting but am going to try this weekend. With with a little over two months I should be able to have something unless I kill them all! *giggle

Longview, TX(Zone 8a)

Here's what I'm attempting to reproduce with cuttings or divisions...first time trying it so I make no guarantees. =) If there's something you really want, let me know and I'll make sure those get done first. 25 plants even at only 5 cuttings each...well, you guys can do the math. So if I run out of time, the claimers will get first dibbs. I don't have any specific wants but I do think I'd like to go more Native Texas next year.

McKinney, TX(Zone 8a)

Anyone want a Hercules Club tree? It's a native! LOL http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/62606/ I just dug it out of the garden bed in the front where it volunteered. It's about 18" tall now and in a pot.

That's about the only thing I know I will have. Almost everything of mine is in pots. I will probably take a few cuttings of Sedum spectabile 'Brilliant' in about a month or so and root them. Other than that, it will probably just be surprises that I show up with and share.

Boerne new zone 30, TX(Zone 8b)

ok I hate to be mean... but just why would anyone WANT that plant?

McKinney, TX(Zone 8a)

LMBO!! Not me on my residential lot. I am guessing there is one in the natural creek area that runs through my back yard, since it popped up in the front bed. Of course anyone who takes it would have to have a large natural looking yard to use it because it's not particularly refined.

Reasons? Hmmm... The old ones are really cool looking with the giant vampire teeth covered bark. 2nd reason is that it is a host of the Giant Swallow-tail butterfly. Third, is the red fruits are eaten by birds. And the last reason someone might want it, is for the holistic properties.

Longview, TX(Zone 8a)

It might be cool for a ranch or desert place.

Boerne new zone 30, TX(Zone 8b)

ok.. if no one else takes it... and it's not too big to travel, I guess I could put it in the back 40 by the creek.

McKinney, TX(Zone 8a)

Cool! I should probably do the same thing, but I already have ideas in my head for the things I want down by my creek. I figured I might find a place for it if no one wanted it.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Stacy, I already have one, or I would have taken it in a heart beat.

Lindsay, OK(Zone 7a)

I would love it - I have been looking for that one for a while now! I have the perfect spot right in the zinna bed....

McKinney, TX(Zone 8a)

Well, as long as nada does not mind, it's yours Mitch.

I am glad someone wants it! I noticed it growing in the Indian Hawthorne bushes back in May. After I identified it, I did not want to just cut it because it was pretty cool to me that it had volunteered there. I finally got around to digging it up last weekend. The thorns on it, the fact that it was growing where the rat snake slithered to and where hornets keep hanging out, kept me from doing it sooner.

Boerne new zone 30, TX(Zone 8b)

that's fine... now I don't have a dig a hole! YEA one less hole to dig! *giggle

Lindsay, OK(Zone 7a)

Tooo good!!! I just love the way this one looks..

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

I would like to have a couple of starts of your
Purple Coneflower, Echinacea purpurea
West Texas Mist Flower, Eupatorium greggii
Heath Aster, Aster ericoides

Everything you gave me in April is doing well. I'm really enjoying having more native plants in my front island (deer-resistant) bed.

Please check my list (second post on this thread) and see if I have anything you would like. Did the beebrush and agarita survive? Fall might be a good time to replace them if they did not. I still have a pasture full!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Mitch, I guess that will be one tree that Chi won't try to climb but once!! OUCH!!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Pat, The Beebrush is doing well, still in the pot because I wanted to wait till fall to give it a good place, I want to rearrange some plants and now is not the time.
The Agarita did,nt make it, so if you have another one to spare, that would be great, you might want to wait for a good rain before taking it.
The Salvia penstemonoides is looking great, but has not bloomed yet, is it a fall bloomer?
I will save you those plants you saked for, I will be posting soon and will have other choices too.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

We are really needing a good rain! I certainly don't mind trying again on the agarita, and I will look for the smallest plants I can find to minimize root damage. I saw some just the other day growing alongside a county road that might be easy to get out with intact roots. It's funny how I never noticed the leaves of the agarita much before I dug those for you last spring. Now I recognize them so quickly.

I saw the salvia penstemonoides in full bloom last November and bought mine at Natives of Texas near Kerrville when we went to the RU at Donna Startz's place. Mine has not bloomed yet either, so I am assuming it must be a fall bloomer. I was hoping for all summer!


Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you for the info Pat, I look froward to seeing it bloom, it will be a surprise for both of us.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

bump--it took me too long to find this Pat

Lindsay, OK(Zone 7a)

I hear you - just remember there are several members coming that never post in the Texas Forum so bring a few extras to swap with them...

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

I don't have a huge car so they might want to post what they want.
