    New this year, we're going to try making a separate thread with items available. Thanks to the edit function, we can update our lists and note what is already claimed. Here is a beginning list of the items I will have available to trade. All are outdoor plants.

    Hosta nigrescens - a vigorous, tall, upright grey-green hosta with somewhat cupped leaves, best in shade

    Hosta Royal Standard - upright-arching green leaves, fragrant white flowers, also vigorous; likes quite a lot of sun

    I have dozens of other hostas of which I could take divisions if you need a hosta for certain conditions or of a certain type.

    Hydrangea ... Nigra - a mophead type of hydrangea that blooms pink for me, distinguished by black stems on current season's growth

    Carex plantaginea - a grass that looks like a narrow-leaved hosta

    Carex grayi - plain green grass to about a foot high, very cool mace-like seed heads.

    Rohdea japonica - evergreen perennial a bit like a hosta - anyone notice a theme emerging here?

    Fern: Polystichum setiferum 'Rotundatum Cristatum' - spreading, forked fronds (12-18" long) that have a somewhat congested look. Tolerates dry conditions once established

    Again, many other ferns available if interested.

    Hypericum androsaemum 'Albury Purple' - probably a seedling of the original plant, but seeds true.

    2-year seedlings of Cydonia (fruiting quince), fruits unpalatable the point of being inedible unless baked or cooked, but best made into jelly (very high in pectin).

    I'm hoping to get a tree called a Parrotia some day - don't suppose anyone has seeds?

    Purple Sage
    ajuga, bronze beauty and chocolate chip

    Garlic: have: Elephant, Yugoslavian softneck, Yugoslavian hardneck, Susan Delafield
    want: purple skinned, prefer hardneck, looking for 'music'

    Indoor stuff: Aloe vera,
    banana plant I'm not sure if it's hardy as I've been bringing it indoors in the winter - it now has pups that I can remove if someone expresses interest otherwise I won't make time for it.

    I also have about 100 roses I can take cuttings from please let me know if you're interested and I can send a spreadsheet. Probably have a few gallica suckers as well.

    I'll probably sow some seeds this weekend. Some biennials and perennials probably; I'll update as they pop their little heads up.

    1 Hibiscus (hardy, purple)
    Lemon Bee Balm

    And you can point at anything else in my garden and we can talk about it...

    Re: Oct 15th Fall Swap, items available

    I look forward to joining you all... Most of my plants are originally from this trade group, so I'll try to look around the garden for something new to trade, otherwise I have:

    HAVE - NEED TO FIND HOMES FOR seedlings/divisions of: [] indicates how many I've dug up so far - let me know which ones are of interest, I'll make sure I dig some & set aside.
    - carex pendula [20!!]
    - astrantia major (masterwort - whitish flower) [1 pot of 3 plants]
    - purple asters, blooming now [2]
    - those crazy strawberries that run & trail down my walls, they finally had flowers this year but no sign of berries - anyone would like it as a groundcover/trailing plant?
    - crocosmia (the orange one) [3 sets of 5 bulbs]
    - osteospermum (purple "Symphony" I believe) - like a friendship cake, this one spreads beautifully, anyone not have it yet?
    - butterfly bushes (rooted cuttings from this spring, they are 12" high now and already bloomed this summer, will be MASSIVE next year) - this one is either the standard (wild) purple one, or very similar colour - visitors often mistake it for a lilac, and the butterflies and hummingbirds love it! [2]
    - euphorbia myrsinites [2]
    - japanese anemone - light purple
    - virginia creeper [3 cuttings with roots]
    - digitalis (foxglove - seedlings of white flowered one) [1 pot of 5 seedlings]

    - mini irises - purple
    - 2 rooted cuttings of Physocarpus Diablo (nice black shrub)
    - climbing hydrangea (rooted cutting) [1]
    - tarragon (believe it is French tarragon, Artemisia dracunculus) [2]

    I'll need to walk about the garden, to see what else... Please let me know (in the other thread, I suppose), if any are of interest, so I can be sure to pot some up & put your name on it. I don't need a trade in return, I have been very blessed by this group, and happy to share what I can.

    I'll be on the lookout for...

    WANTED perennials:
    - more bright daisy-like flowers (all sorts of colours) which form a good clump
    - plants for a shady/wet area
    - osteospermum (other colours than my purple "Symphony")
    - white coneflower / echinacea
    - more sedum spectabile (I think I have "Autumn Joy" & "Brilliant" - love these!)
    - more tall euphorbia
