Midwest City, OK(Zone 7b)

Beck, you will get a caladium basket, and I will make it especially for you. Shoot, girl, ya know! I would like a Confederate to try. Is that okay? Peg

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Charlene, you have the Carolina phlox, may I have your orange Milkweed ?

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Got you for cones, Charlene. How many do you want? Also, if it's still available, could I please get your Texas betony?

Hey, Becky, could I trouble you for one or two of your iron cross oxalis? They are just so cute. What can I bring you besides hostas?

Stephanie, I have several pink skullcaps and can bring you several cuttings, if you can tell me how to root it. I'd really like to know because I want more myself! I've never been successful at getting it to root--must be cutting the wrong stems or the wrong time of year or something. .

I may have some daylilies to add to my haves list... will have to check. I'm also adding a red passi to my want list, if anyone has one.

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Charlene.. I'll put you down for the lil Amarylis..LOL

Patty... do you spell your name Patty.. or Pattie??.. You know I have to be "proper"?!..lol Sure thing on the oxalis.. I'll probably give at least 5 bulbs each.. depending on how many want them... Hostas.. and DL's...I Love them!! So I'd love a DL's if you do list any..

Peg.. you know anything for you...hehe you want both?? Ty for the special basket!! Charlene and I have been talking about the confederates.. since she has never seen a red mentioned.. it may be a hibiscus... I did notice the leaves are 3 tipped.. not 5..

What are they Charlene??..LOL

Sylvia... I know ya'll had fun on the "hayless" hayride..lol.. but who are those 2 girls.. on the end of the lowboy...hmmmmmmmmm????????ROTFLOL!!!!! Sorry I didn't go.... I had to "entertain"...hehe.. in the camper....

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Becky,

I am intrigued that you have farkleberry and bee balm. I have seen them described in some books on native Texas plants, but have never seen them in a nursery in the DFW area. Do they do well around here? Any special care requirements?

Dennis

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Oops! I was thinking of Beebrush, not bee balm, which is another plant that I have been interested in but have not seen around in the DFW area. But I am still intrigued by the farkleberry....

Dennis

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Dennis.. The first farkleberries I dug.. EVER..lol was for mamjack and Josephine for the Central RU.. I don't think Josephines made it.. I read they are very hard to transplant.. even though I dug to China..lol to get the taproot. They only have a few fine hair roots. I dug 4 yesterday.. and you are welcome to have one if you want to try. I call them Huckleberry, and they make good jelly if you like the "wine" flavored "wang". I love the natives too.. and I am keeping my eye out for you.. I gave Josephine a Brazos Mint something or other.. I also dug one of those if you are interested. We also have Sassafras.. and they are also hard to transplant.. but I am up for digging anything I have here for any of you!! LMK!!

I couldn't tell you the range they grow in , but here.. I have one right by my house.. it was maybe 3' high 12 years ago.. It has literally taken care of itself.. I rarely watered it .. and surely haven't in the last 8-10 years! It is now about 20'. They don't get very tall.. it's probably at it's tallest. It is sort of like an understudy tree, as it is under an Oak, but gets mostly afternoon sun.

Patty got a beautyberry.. how's it doing up there??

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Well, I got 2 beauty berries, remember? The first was your door prize contribution in Buffalo. Then you brought me another in Jacksonville. Both of them suffered a little transplant damage, but they've come back just fine. The spring one even bloomed and has berries now. I just love them.

Beck, the reason I'm not sure about the daylilies is that I ordered more than I need in Lorraine's Blooming Bulb coop. I just don't remember how many I ordered or which ones. I will have to look at the spreadsheet and see. I'll try to do that pretty quick here.

I spell my name with "ie." If you think that's fun, wait until you try to pronounce my last name. :)

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Mornin!!

Pattie... that is no problem.. and no hurry..lol.. I like all flowers..

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Becky, I would really like to give the farkleberry a try. I think I have the perfect spot for it - partial sun with sandy soil. My wife has been trying to get me to plant blueberries, and it should give me at least partial credit since they are in the same family! :)

I've never heard of Brazos Mint. Sounds interesting. What is it like?

Dennis



Granbury, TX(Zone 8a)

Hello Everyone, can all my trade people please check my list to be sure I have them down for everything we have agreed to and let me know if I missed anything or anyone. Thanks bunches Tanarae

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Tanarea.. you have me down perfectly!!

Dennis..I am not completly sure this is the brazos mint, but it sure looked like it.. I found it in plant files here, so you can take a look at it.It has really pretty lil flowers.. purple with a white throut.. and they bloom spring through fall.. I assume..as they are still blooming when I dug them the other day.We have been so dry until this last week.. and the plant is kinda ratty looking.. but blooming it's head off..lol I am sure by the RU it will be looking better.I found a lot in full sun, and kinda at the edge of the trees.. so I assume they will grow almost anywhere. I wish I had some more"real" blueberry starts to give you.. THEN your wife would give you a big ol kiss for sure..lol.. I'll go check...

I'll put you down for 2 huckleberries and the brazos mint..

Kim, I have killed three lady margarets so far. I would love to try again. If you don't mind start me a few as I don't have a good history with them. I do love them so and would like to get at least one going. Do you bring yours inside for the winter. My last one was going great through most of the winter (inside) and then it just went belly up a few weeks before spring.

Check my list please.

BTW my Tropicanna roses are so beautiful!! I can't thank you enough for thinking of me.

Charlene

Seguin, TX(Zone 8b)

I will try some for you, I haven't had a lot of success rooting them either in the past but perhaps this will be a better time of year. Mine is in the ground, it takes a long time to come back up, usually not until June, but it has come back two years now, even after all that ice two winters ago. Glad to hear your roses are doing well!

:) Kim

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Pattie, on the coneflowers, I'll take whatever you can spare. I have plenty of space for them, so after you share with anyone else that wants them, I'll gladly take what is left.
Thank you,
Charlene

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Someone shared this plant with me and I don't know it's name. Anyone here familiar with it?
Charlene

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

Here is a close-up of the flowers.

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Charlene..I think that is obedient plant.. I got some too.. from David.. I think.. Arent they pretty??!! BTW.. you owe me a phone call..LOL

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Help! Has anybody had the problem I have just encountered. I edited my list and added all the plants I have promised, etc., and now only a portion of my post shows up. When I go back in to edit, it is all there!

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Patricia... I had the same problem and had administration check it out for me.. I had put a . instead of a > for the bold print.. something you taught me how to do.. LOL not the mistake...hehehe

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks, I'll go back and proofread more carefully.

Seguin, TX(Zone 8b)

I also have given purple obedient plant to people in trades. My hummers absolutely love the stuff. It does multiply well...lol...but when you see all the bees and hummers on them it seems well worth it!

in case it happens here.

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Kim, while you're trying to root Lady Margaret, could you please add a couple for me?

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

This is a variegata undulata.. that came up from a hosta I moved.There is no white on the leaves, even though it looks like it in the pic. THIS is NOT like my others.. wonder why.. and what it is doing? It's about 16" tall...??? This is my first pic to send..Here's praying..lol

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

This is what it's supposed to do..

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Beck, are you sure it's v. undulata? Looks an awful lot like my undulata albomarginatas. I have 6 of those and they all have different foliage most of the time.

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Pattie..This is the same one I gave you at Central.. and I believe that is what I wrote down that you told me it was.. It was a NOID before that..LOL I don't remember if I told you or not.. think I did... I divided 3 large ones.. all the same.. and they all came back up last year fine. Then this year.. some have the variegation and some were more green.. and then this tall thing that doesn't look anything like the rest??
Since these are my first pics I hope Sylvia sees this.. we were talking about this "Wild Thing"..l Being on dial up.. I may not be posting many pics..I could have cleaned my whole house..IF I had gotten up... well almost..lol

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Kim, you are going to do great on the "awful" tests! If you have time to stick a few cuttings of 'Lady Margaret' and the white passion vine for me, I would appreciate it. Or, if it would be easier, just bring me a few cuttings in October. I have been having pretty good luck rooting vines in the greenhouse that time of year.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Pattie I asked James and he said it is a Bee Brush I looked at mine and they have very variable leaves, some rounded some pointed and some serrated especially on the new growth.
Josephine.

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Okay, thanks, Josephine, I'll have to remember that! It's very pretty.

Hmmm... okay, Beck, let me see. I saw you with some noid hostas in Buffalo and those were the ones that looked like u. albos to me. I didn't take one, though, cuz I have plenty. Then I saw a photo on here that you called a noid, and I think I told you it was the same thing. But it might not have been. I was kind of assuming it was the same ones that you had in Buffalo.

THEN, in Jacksonville you gave me a very pretty noid streaker. Is that the one you're talking about now? I don't know what it is, but I don't think it's undulata albomarginata. It's not at all like my tagged ones, anyway--streakier, thicker leaf substance, glossier.

My u. albos look different at different times of the year. In the spring they tend to have a clear-cut white margin with light green leaves. As it gets warmer, the white tends to "move around" on the leaves. This photo was taken about a year ago. You can see that most of the leaves don't look alike.

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Pattie...
I only have the one hosta.. the NOID...that is big enought to trade.. since I really just got into them this spring... so at both RU's it was the same hosta... I really thought you had told me what it was after the RU on the thread...hmmmm I am too lazy to go back and look..lol dad gum... I just have to go back to it being a NOID...waaaa
Your albo does kinda look like mine here though.. my leaf is very thin too.. oh well.. do you know why that top pic here looks more like a "corn stalk" as Lyle said??...LOL...

OK.. if anyone wants a NOID hosta.. the pic above is what I have listed..LOL NOT the undulata!!

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Stephanie, could I get some of your 'Katie' pink dwarf ruellia and a 'Becky' shasta daisy? I don't have anything on your 'want' list, but please check my list to see what I can bring for you.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Dennis, may I please have one of your Barbados Cherry? I will try and get you a tooted cutting of Bee Brush, do we have a deal?
Also please check my list.
Josephine.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

I think you mean rooted! LOL!

(Phyllis) Flint,, TX(Zone 7b)

[do you know why that top pic here looks more like a "corn stalk" as Lyle said??...LOL...]

If ya find out Beck let me know too as I have something just like it that I found in the stuff LouC gave me when I went and saw her last month.
