Dallas, TX

I think I am going trade all my Sedums and Succulents as I dont really have a place for them. I will make a list this weekend.

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

Oh good...you know my compost only likes Starbucks! No problem for the frog fruit and pink rain lily. Actually I would love to try the Hillary’s Sweet Lemon Mint instead if it's still available.

Grand Saline, TX(Zone 7b)

Sheila, will put you down for the bog sage. May I get one of your Jersulem Sages, if they root. Those are so cool! Reminds me of a Dr.Suess illustration.

Seguin, TX(Zone 8b)

Ummm...my trade list isn't in the collection of links? I am pretty sure I posted something somewhere even though it was only a few things...but then again right now my brain is fried...

:) Kim

Buffalo, TX(Zone 8b)

TexasLizzy...I would love one of the October Skies Asters, please check my list for something.

Thanks Anna, Lynea, and Charlene got you covered. I am waiting to post my pre trades until late tonight. I think I have used up my edits.

Pat your link is fixed, I think it has to do with the additional link inside your post.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kim I did find you list and added it to the top of this thread, sorry we missed it.
Josephine.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks, Josephine. I have used the additional link for the last several RU's with no problem, but with computers, it's sometimes a mystery. All appears to be working fine now. Maybe tomorrow I won't have to ask you for repairs. :>)

Terry went in and fixed the problem with Kittylover's link. My directions to Kitty were a bit confusing, and Terry's fix was right on target. Sometimes action beats a thousand words!

Lizzy, I have added the link to your list to the top post as well.

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

Hi blue eyes,

I'm interested in your passionvine-incarnata. How big does it get? Is it invasive?

Is there anything on my list you would be interested in?

Dennis

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Could I have cuttings of...Pink Chaos...Dappled Apple..NOID..Sedona..Alabama Sunset..Velvet Wizard Red..Christmas Candy..Golda.. please??BTW.. we have so many trees around here, I couldn't get any to root here in the house, but I am having pretty good luck by just putting them in dirt. ty for the info though.. I am always looking for ways to start plants!

I noticed on one of the plant files that in 2006 you listed desmodium canadense (Showy tick trefoil) as a want. Were you ever able to get seeds of that plant. I've saved a few if you still need them. I'm still trying to find the pencil flower alias stylosanthes biflora.

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Beck, I think I already have you down for coleus? I didn't list all of the specific ones that people have asked for on here, but I have a list offline and will check when I get ready to pot them up. If I can't find it, which will probably happen, well, then, you'll just have to get all of them. :)

TexasLizzy, are you the Liz who came to Melva's in February? It'll be good to see you again. And, if you aren't, well, it'll be good to meet you.

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

Becky are you going ot tell them about your big BIG Sassafras for trade?
if not I am LOL
Everyone

told me ............
OK.. you advertise... BIG Sassafras for trade..LOL otherwise it's going in my burn pile!!

I told her if nothing else she should make Sassafras tea to bring to the RU that there were some that liked it last year when I made some.

Anyone want to save the tree from her burn pile :-)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Becky, how big is that Sassafras tree?

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

James, good to hear from you, you are so thoughtful, no I did not find ti Treefoil, and yes I would love the seeds, is this the one you are talking about?

Southlake, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes, I am the Liz at Melva's in Feb. It will good to put faces to names!

I will look over the trade lists - but I have plenty of what I posted so I will try to keep track so that everyone gets what they want!!!!!!

Seguin, TX(Zone 8b)

Dennis....the incarnata does pop up volunteers, but I just mow them over or pull them out. The butterflies love it, and it is a host plant for the gulf fritillary. I have had them all over my yard all summer.

Beck....thanks for the wishes! I have my last written exam tomorrow, and then it's a break until my big oral exam next Wed. I am surviving though!

North Richland Hills, TX(Zone 8a)

Becky - I got you down for one of my Hardy Hibiscus (yellow) babies. We moved the seedlings to their own little pots last night & they still seem to be perky this morning. I couldn't believe how many roots had developed. I'm really hoping they stay strong & develop nicely by October.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Jennifer, could I have a lantana 'camara' and one of your yellow hibiscus babies (if you still have an extra)?

North Richland Hills, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure thing Pat. I'll mark you down for the lantana 'camara' and a hibiscus baby. :)

Jennifer

Longview, TX

Josephine
Yes that appears to be it. I have mine in a pot so I don't have as many flowers on the clusters. Everytime you get near it you walk away with seed pods stuck to your pants leg. I'll send some seeds and have my wife take pictures of the plant and blooms to send with it incase you want to recheck.

Did you tell me at the Jacksonville trade that you had a lot of sassafras seedlings?
Jameso

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Sheila, I have you down for 'Jesse's Song.' If I were allowed only one iris, it would be my choice. It is the first named iris to bloom for me every year and goes for three weeks or more without slowing down. Could I get another EE? The ones you gave me last year are doing great, but I am trying to fill a large area.

Liz, would you put my name on some of your salvia 'Blue Bedder' and aster 'October Skies'? Please check my list and see what I can bring for you.


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

Hey james ....yeah we have it coming up all over the place.

I know I am taking some to the Ru on the 11th in Tyler did ya want some too?
and will bring some to Arlington the 18th if needed

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Jennifer, like Sheila said, I don't think you can kill ee's. My Illustris is new this year and has never lived outside my pond. However, the Black Magic has been in the ground until this year. It survived 8 days last August without any water. It will also live in the shade. But, it will get much bigger with lots of water, and much blacker with lots of sun.

North Richland Hills, TX(Zone 8a)

Fantastic, thanks Pattie & Sheila - I can't wait for the new additions! Is October here yet??? :)

I'm not sure of my schedule for the plant trades. I was telling darkmoondreamer that I had to go to the valley for a week, I've got to be in Kansas City for 4 or 5 days for a reunion of the ship I was on in the navy, a high school reunion, got to keep my grandson since I'm the only one that will be free that weekend, and for sure the plant sale at the Lady bird Johnson Wildflower center. So right now I'm not sure of which dates are free.
The sassafras I got from you in Jacksonville didn't make it. However, I'm going to be in Frankston thursday I think. If there's a store near you I can drop off the orange juice I've got for you and pick up a couple of trees if that's not too much trouble.
