Corydalis flexuosa
I have Corydalis flexuosa 'Pere David' to trade. Blue Heron and a purple leafed form but it will be a while until I have some to exchange. 'Blue Panda" is one cultivar I used to have and would like to get and there are many other species out there as well. Corydalis is a wonderful spring and summer shade plant. Combine it with spring bulbs and perennials such as Tiarella, Dicentra, and Mertensia, or with hostas and ferns. Shooting Star also works well with this plant. Zn 7 Though with snow cover it might go to Zn 6

lousiana Iris
Stunning purple-black color and incredible vigor define this upright grower. It flourishes in damp soils and can be a great bog plant as it can have its feet in standing water. Giant near-black blooms begin in early summer and this vigorous plant can grow some three feet high and wide and is virtually maintenance free.
Although it can grow in full sun is can do well in part shade as well. Zn 4.9 Available in fall.

Even when not in bloom, it looks good because the foliage is evergreen. Forming a dense, low mound and is the earliest blooming plant in my garden. This is often found in partly shaded sites but in the PNW, I have grown it in sun. Limited amount available. These are in 3.5 inch pots and sell locally for 10.00, so something of like value would be needed. Hardy Orchid etc.

halimiocistus_ wintonensis
Zone 7 Fabulous pale creamy yellow flowers up to 2″ across with crimson maroon centers! This again is basically for the West Coast and does fine here in Sequim WA. Good drainage is important and in the same climate zone, we have an eighty inch difference in rainfall within 70 miles. Sequim gets about the same as L.A. and much less than my former town of Santa Cruz CA.

Jovibarba heufflii
(yohv-ih-BAR-ba | heff-EL-ee-eye) are beautiful cold hardy and drought tolerant succulents with varying rich colors that Jovibarba cultivars The color may change by the season. They multiply from offsets which you cut with a knife to propagate. If left alone, the plants form lovely, large clumps and do not multiply on stolons as Sempervivum do. When you want to increase the numbers you cut them in pieces (on the dry side) and replant.
Because of the propagation they are much more valuable than Sempervivum and have yellow flowers not pink.
They can be grown from seed, but that part of the plant that flowers will die. I have some 16 cultivars and would trade for others or something special in the 'rockery' dept.

Ledebouria Species
Ledebouria socialis

The names of these plants are ever changing. Scilla socialis purpurea is one and Scilla violacea is the other plant as I remember from some twenty years ago. They are an old Victorian favorite and make excellent houseplants or even bonsai accents. I grow both.

Lewisia Species
Lewisia cotyledon

Mixture of rainbow -based flower colors on a compact succulent - leaved alpine preferring semi-shade and fast drainage. Blooms May to August. In quart sized pots. Might do okay in a cold dry greenhouse back east, but it will not take excessive rain or humidity. It is a mountain plant native to the west coast and needs a winter time out. Large blooming pots.

I have been propagating these guys and would like to get more colors. What I have is mostly in the pink, orange tones. These are in three inch pots. I will have more next year as well as seeds.

Mammillaria Species
Mammillaria vetula subsp. gracilis

With good drainage and living in a mini WA desert zone I have found this plant to survive 17 F. Colder than that - ???
Throwing snow over the plant would also help in its outdoor garden survival.

Mint
Mentha

Chocolate mint. I have nice 3.5 inch pots of this delectable mint. It remains one of my two favorite mints. Bronzy leaves and low growing, Chocolate mint is a great peppermint with distinct chocolate overtones.
I have about 12 different varieties but if you have a good collection let me know. Pretty selective on this ... looking for some of the new cultivars. No Apple Mint or Corsican, Curly mint offers please.

Ophiopogon Ophiopogon japonica nanus
Ophiopogon japonica nanus Nice 3.5 inch pots. Dark forest green grassy foliage suitable as a bonsai companion plant. white- lavender blooms and if lucky navy blue berries. Zn7 Might do colder climates with snow cover.

Site seems to have a problem with the 'Genus' thing.

Opuntia Species
Opuntia cyclodes

After twenty years of passing by this beautiful cactus, some 6 by 10 feet by now…I was asked by the owner to prune it back. OKAY!!! I’ll even haul them off. It is hardy in Zn-7/8 Sequim, WA. and relishes our dry winters. Sequim, only gets some 15 inches of rainfall a year and happens to be in a mild climate zone. Rarely do we drop down to 10. F. Adding 6 inches of coarse gravel to the potting area would be a good thing to do. Plant under an overhang, facing south. Great protective landscape plant to put under opening windows.
Plants
Brittle Prickly-Pear
Opuntia fragilis var. denudata

To those familiar with the large, shrub-like prickly pears of Arizona, Opuntia fragilis would hardly be recognized as a close relative of those impressive plants, but indeed it is! However, it has much smaller pads than most Opuntia, usually just 1-2″ long or occasionally a little longer. The pads are “fat” and can be cylindrical to slightly flattened in shape. Some older references state that the pads are invariably cylindrical, but a thorough inspection of a sample of wild O. fragilis plants will reveal that this definition is too narrow. The pads have spines that may be rather soft and white to more rigid and somewhat golden or brownish in color. The spine color also varies according to the time of year. In June, yellow flowers are produced, but some forms of this species are rather shy to flower.
Plants
Amethyst Falls Ornamental Oregano
Origanum

Xeric only begins to describe this spectacular hybrid
Oregano. Great for rockery use, rock walls or even
hanging containers. Cascades of bright pink blooms
emerge from chartreuse bracts on very aromatic foliage.
Outstanding drought resistant plant and I suspect it is deer proof as well.

Rhodohypoxis Species
Rhodohypoxis baurii

My collection has (HAD) three different cultivars ranging from two pinks and a white. The plant is rarely offered and is often used as an accent in the bonsai trade. (Keep on dry side in winter and protect from mice!) Zn 8

Most all is R. baurii -- what was called 'Red' but is just a deep pink. The softer R. 'Tetra Pink' seems to have all about disappeared. More hairy leaves differentiate this plant. As for whites, it is too early as they have not yet bloomed. Needless to say the Pink and white will be held back until I have more stock.

Teucrium scorodonia

Teucrium scorodonia 'Crispum' (Wood Sage) Tough but frilly. The unusual, eye-catching leaves of this dwarf, slowly-spreading shrub are lime-green, 2-3"long with a wavy, crinkled appearance. Tough and drought-tolerant it deserves much more use. It would also be a fun addition to a child’s garden – a treat for sight and touch alike. PSh-Sun Zn 5
