Thank you, Danita. I hadn't seen that one before. Blue milkweed and blue beans are trending with piggies this year.

Just as it is emerging in the spring

this plant is close to 4feet tall, it's been here a few yrs.

I'd always heard it was a Bi-Annual, guess it's more of a short lived Perennial.

These are grown in Zone5a in IL.

I didn't list the Cosmos atrosanguineus (Chocolate Daisy) on my have list, because I know there is a huge demand for.
For the ones who are not familar with the plant: This plant is sterile in the USA and Europe, it never sets seed. I got seeds from a Russian gardener from a fertile plant and it indeed sets seed here.
It's a perennial in zone 8 and higher, an annual in colder zones.
To give every Piggy a fair chance, not only the ones who are online when I post it, I decided to give them to the piggies who give me the best reason why I should send the seeds to them.
PLUS: I expect that – if you get the seeds- you will offer them in next year's Piggyswap , so
we all together make a start to re-introduce this fertile plant in the USA and Europe again and give the other Piggies a chance to grow them the year after.
Please, don't oink for the seeds on the threads, just sent me a c-mail why I should send the seeds to you.
I have 3 packets available for the Piggyswap. You have 96 hours to send your c-mail. Hopefully that will give all the Piggies a chance to ask for it.

Lovey dubby That is truly a labor of love!

Not to worry Weedwhacker I read the whole post before I responded. I may be bug eyed from trying to read the graph for the tablecloth but my brain still works at least Smiling

Toomany.... Sharon.... I wish you would have said something a long time ago that you were looking for the Star Magnolia.

It is a beautiful tree. I don't know if I can find any seeds of it now or not. It blooms normally in the early spring and takes forever and ever to make any seed at all. I used to watch the trees for seed on campus all the time. Next time I go up there I'll see if I can find any seed.

Sometimes in the spring, the Hort Club has a plant sale of young seedlings in April. If nothing else maybe I can get ya a young seedling tree. Remind me in March so I mark it on my calender.

I am cold!!!!! Don't have to worry about blue beans and blue milkweed, heheheheheh by tomorrow morning my body will probably be turning blue. Then I'll be a blue piggy. Hilarious!

I am so tired. Been running like a fool between the wind and rain trying to harvest last of crops that was ready, moving plants, covering others and gettign ready for the next couple of days of bitter cold. Being in a valley I'll be at about 25F and worse Sat morning.

Crying Bout broke my heart but had to go and pick my tomato I was waiting to turn to get seed from. Such a shame too cuz it was looking so good. Picked a whole tray of assorted colors of peppers. I know the plants will be mush come morning.

Saw on news tonight where this cold gonan hang for a bit and than next weekend it gonna be even worse. I still can't belive we getting this cold and bad of weather this early. LAst year was a freak I thought. Well at least there is not alot out there this year to be killed.

I'm so glad I got my Salvias and Elegance Lavenders and other special plants all potted up into bigger containers that will help protect the roots some. I never worry about taking care of the tops. Take care of the roots and the tops will take care of themselves.

Ella, I truly am feeling terrible for all of you in the south that are getting blasted by this cold air (I admit, there was a time in the past when I would have just laughed...). We shouldn't even be this cold way up here, and what you're having would be like us getting a winter storm in August Crying But, not much we can do about the weather except pick up the pieces and move on. I hope all your plants (or at least most) survive (and that you do, too!).

Ella, don't worry about a magnolia seedling ... I want to find seeds and grow my own trees. I got such a kick out of starting those Japanese Maples a couple years back and giving most away to grateful family and friends. I thought I'd like to try it with the star magnolias! Smiling

Mindy, lovely table cloth!

Sandy, how much snow have you gotten?

Besides Tuink, is anyone getting close to having 100 outgoing packs? I'm up to 88, and awaiting an answer from Star as to what I do when I reach 100. I'm just curious if others are getting close.

I dont think the outgoing matters, its the incoming. we are each allowed up to 100 requests or incoming packs. Since we have several requesting from us we will most likely have more than 100 outgoing. I agree

Oddly (and happily) we only have a couple of inches... but that was in a VERY narrow strip right near Lake Michigan (I'm just south of Escanaba); my stepdaughter lives about 12 miles away (near Gladstone) and got about 10 inches, and up by Lake Superior some places have over 3 feet of snow!! Crying And with winter storm Bozeman coming along behind Astro, I'm afraid winter is here to stay...
