I really can't aford to purchase much, so I just LOVE to trade.
This is the first season I've been brave enough to ship plants.
Cuttings, I feel safe with, and SEEDS, I love.

I have extensive Have and Want lists over at Dave's Garden under the name of Nilly, which I will be changing to plantsANDpets in November when I pay my subscription again.

I couldn't possibly type it all in over here, but if anyone's looking to trade and can check it out over here, PLEASE do so!

I hope this season I get more plants entered as I include plants in my Have list.

Maybe over here I could post pictures of plants and seeds I have but can't identify.
That's hard to do at Dave's.
I have several things I got in trade or for freebies that I don't know the names of.
DAYlilies in particular.

If you love to trade, watch my forum, woncha?
Decisions, decisions.
I tried a couple of usernames and have finally settled on:

crittergarden.

That's it, no more changes. I'm done. I will be crittergarden here, on Cubits, and when I renew my Dave's Garden subscription on Noveber 4, I'll be crittergarden over there, too. DONE!

Well, I'm currently in the market for perennial SOMEthing that will bloom between the daffodils and the irises. Between the daffodils and the daisies, actually. It's an empty time in my yard and I want to fix that.

I'm in zone 5 and don't do pink or thorns.

Maybe you can suggest something even if you don't have it to trade?

PaP - try Bluebeards. They're extremely hardy and get quite beautiful, but they're an late summer/autumn bloomer. Same with Russian sage. Very xeric, too, if you need that.

Caryopteris, eh?
This plant has not been on my radar at all - until now!
Thanks.

But what is blooming BEFORE them and after the daffodils? Green is my favorite color, but I like other colors in the yard and this time of year there aren't many. Tulips are fading, irises haven't opened yet......

Forsythia, Flowering Almond (although you did say no pink), dragon's blood, basket-of-gold (VERY xeric, very hard to kill, nice nice nice yellow), delphiniums (one of my FAVs)... purple rain salvia, vinca minor... phlox (lots of different kinds, some white, some pink, some purple), lilacs...

These are all good in zone 5/4 that I can think of off the top of my head.. (other than roses LOL).

Thanks.
The timing isn't right on some of those I already have (forsythia and lilac are done, delphiniums are not up yet), but I'll look up the ones I don't already have and see about it.

I have some seeds for "basket of gold" but I just got them.
I'm on the hunt for dark blue/purple phlox.

My lilacs are still going strong. I have common purple, Mount Baker, & Charles Joly blossoming right now. If you want some of those seeds, I'd be happy to send 'em to ya. Also, I think I still have seeds from some of my bluebeards (standard, not sure if my Sunshine Blue produces a seed) & Russian Sage. Dragon's Blood is a sedum, so I can send you some clippings (mine looks like this http://www.robertsonlandscaping.com/php_uploads/rob_cl_20090...). And I can send you seeds from the Purple Rain salvia when it blossoms, if you'd like. Forsythia doesn't produce seeds I don't think.. think it's cloned by cuttings.

Truth is worth finding
plants,
I am in the same zone and my cubit has plants I grow listed by month,I photograph them to keep track of what is in bloom when. It may be helpful in finding something for the time you are looking for?

Oh GUS! That's a real help!
I started this year tracking my own (I'm making a chart, even) and taking pictures every Tuesday.
I'm going to look for yours right now!
