East Texas RU TRADES #2 May 16

Jacksonville, TX(Zone 8a)

djm- I always called it Cashmere Bouquet. It blooms redish/pink. It has an odd smell, you either like it or not. Can be invasive as it spreads from under ground roots. When The Dave came over he said some call it wild hydrangea but I forgot the real name. I know others on here know it and the "real" name.
You need one.

No I definitely don't need one of those--they are called Clerodendrum bungei and are very invasive as well as smell awful (sorry--that's my opinion of them):

That's it. Either love or hate the smell. I'm kinda wierd I guess but I like it.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

I do think they named that brand of soap after them though, didn't they?
=)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

The flowers smell nice, it is the leaves that have a funny smell.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

Josephine--got a Texas native alert for you before I add it to the list in a few minutes. Zephyranthes pulchella. These are small bulbs because its a smalll species of Zeph's. A gallon sized plastic pot would hold them nicely for you until they offset out more. Native to the Texas coastal bend and Mexico; it's a small but cheerful yellow species which blooms from August through September for us. Zephyranthes pulchella is being very negatively impacted in the wild by suburban and other building and development in Texas. This one is medium height (7"-8") and good for zones 8-10.

Want some?

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes Debbie I would like to have them, what would you like from my list?

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

Its OK Josephine--I'm already getting stuff from you
=)

I'll add to list in a while, I'm still doing invoices right now. I just dug them up today so I'm offering the rain lilies I dug--I'm not digging up anymore today--my hands are freezing.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

I posted on the old thread but will post here as well:

Debbie - I have an Elizabeth Ann camellia (white with pink edges) for you,.. so you'll have a nice selection to go home with!

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Josephine - may I have the Frostweed, please? Thank you!
I hope you can find something you'd like on my list....I'll be adding some other things later too. Lee

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Debbie, I lost all of my Salvia transylvanica during our extended drought with very hot summers. Neither clump showed any sign of life last spring. It was gorgeous, and I'm looking for a replacement.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Sure thing Lee, the Frostweed is yours. I will check your list later.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Lee could I have the Herbertia lahue?
Josephine.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Absolutely! I'll tag some for you! Thanks, Josephine!

Jacksonville, TX(Zone 8a)

You guys with camellia plants for trade can please save me one of each color.
Check out my list for trades.
Thanks,
DD

(Maggi) Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

I updated my list and will keep updating as I find more stuff.

I am going to try to get some of these, they grow in an area in Hawkins, I really like them. They are very small.

I may have to trade my DH pretty soon If I don't get anything to stay alive form seed so far this year. LOL

those are pretty Maggi I'll have to keep my eye out and see if I find nay and grab them if possible for ya

Palestine, TX(Zone 8b)

I'm sorry, I'm out of camellias. I only had two. I'm trying to root another one. It is still green and has a new leaf but no root. Go figure.

David, do you have a Maya brug? It's a variegate. I know you love the variegates. I have seeds of Maya crossed with an unknown, germinating. I have one to share if you want it. It won't be very big by May, but you know it will grow with loving care.

MIBUS--take those 2 extra links off my trade list above PLEASE
they are imbedded in my trade list, geez.....

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

sorry was just trying to make sure things you posted on the other thread were able to be found at the time when I looked they weren't on your main trade list ...was just trying to help.

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

no problem
=)
Just when you see more you'll know why, makes the trade list shorter. Which ones of those did you want so I can put you down--that was you right?

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

yes that was me I was just making a list of things ...
I feel out of place as usual as I don't have a list made up yet of anything other then some bird houses hubby is making for me and homemade bread and will probably closer to time make some stained glass sun catchers of some type too
Here is a list of wants if possible ...if taken already not a problem :)

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

You got them--but which Narcissus do you want?
I think a suncatcher would be wonderful and would really be quite enough of a trade! I'm really into art. Celtic art--tribal art. Do you do facebook? I could let you into my homepage and you might get a better idea.....also stay tuned, a lot more rain lilies when I get a chance and probably more regular plants too.

(Karen) Frankston, TX(Zone 8a)

Gotcha down Phyllis :)

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

which Narcissus .........anything you what to get rid of

yes I am on facebook http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=1435472872&ref=profile

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

I'll put your name on those plants, Phyllis.

(Karen) Frankston, TX(Zone 8a)

Pat I wrote you a Dmail last week but I don't think you got it? May I please have some of your Salvia Indigo Spires for the RU? Please let me know what you'd like from my list. Thanks, Karen

(Maggi) Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

Mibus - got you down for those.

I may possibly have some very small camellias, Ken rooted some cuttings but I am reluctant to put them up for trade for another month or so. Mostly C. sasanqua or other hybrids, not C. japonica.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Sorry, Karen, Friday was my birthday and I received a lot of d-mails and just overlooked yours. Of course I will put you down for salvia 'Indigo Spires.'

(Karen) Frankston, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Pat, and Happy belated Birthday!

Humble, TX

Do camellias come true from seed? My grandmother's bush put off some seedlings. If they live, I may have some to share with those who have been so generous to me. :)

I haven't a clue--but they must be hard to propagate or grow really slow--they are so expensive

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

I'm not picky Maggi ya know that LOL

Thanks everyone that I had on the list I really appreciate it !!!!!

I'm just trying to kinda plan ahead for once we get the back leveled and such so I can plant at the top of the terrace and around so it looks good for September plus things I like LOL....sure wish I could afford someone to come and give me ideas and tips for landscaping

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

I have no other camellias available (so sorry)...and they do grow slow!

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Debbie - may I have a Zeph. pulchella and a Crinum americanum and a Mafreda maculosa, please? Thanks a bunch!

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

yeah Willis--give me a second to edit, kinda busy week here

west Houston, TX(Zone 9a)
