I'd like to set up a one for one direct plant (no seeds, please) trade for Siberian lovers. They can be named or unnamed as long as you post a picture of what you're offering. I thank everyone who helped me expand my Siberian pathway and hope to be able to repay the generosity shown to me. We can use this thread to introduce ourselves and keep in touch.
A little about myself. I'm not on much as I am a snowbird (retired) and volunteer for several organizations including sewing quilts for the local neonatal unit of the local hospital, and local returning veterans. I also manage the tool trailer for our local Habitat for Humanity construction site. We (dh and I) spend some time babysitting when our family needs help. My garden is located in upstate NY on a small lake. This is a picture of the gateway looking out of the garden.
well not sure they like it up here in the cold I Had 3-4 but don't know what happen to them . they never made it through the winter . maybe i planted them to late in the fall ???? this was back 4-5 yrs ago
i think I have one call voo doo is that a sib a friend sent last summer in a trade . I do hope it makes it ,
will let you know when the snow is gone
Women gain weight because we have so much information & wisdom in our heads that we run out of storage space... it goes to our butt instead!!!
i HAVE THIS IRIS NOT SURE WHAT IT IS SIB ?? SOMEONE SHARED WITH ME ABOUT 3-5 YRS AGO No Name on it but it is one of my fav's
Black gamecock does very well for me . Guess i will have to see about trading a few of my Daylilies for a few sib this year to see how they do . I hve mostly all sun could that have had anything to do with them dying off ??
or maybe they might be covered by other plants I'm not sure .
I posted this somewhere i thought it was here
Mittsy - the foliage in your first photo is like the siberian iris I lost and am trying to replace. I LOVE that look. As close to ornamental grass as I can get. If I could get that foliage look, I'd have siberians all over the place!!
But mine was a very dark blueviol to royal blue violet color, and the flower was a bit more like a helicopter in look.
actually, I don't grow them, Polly, because I keep looking for that ONE I lost! Seriously, I did love that thing. Looking back at it, I got it from a developing dealer of perennials who probably didn't know squat about irises. no telling what it was.
I know Roy grew them. We go over to weed his tomorrow. The ENCIS group is in charge of his irises in his garden until we tour it. It's on our tour for Region 4 Spring Conference. I had volunteered to spearhead everything, but got vetoed. Probably because I had no experience with sibs.
don't know if it's his will, or his daughters. but the irises from his garden will all be dug and divided. Some they will give to his friends as keepsakes of him. some they want for their own gardens.
For the rest:
The newer intros will all be donated to AIS for sale as a fundraiser. The older intros will be donated to ENCIS for our next sale. So, yes, a very very good chance for me to buy some that already like NC climate!
He lived in such a modest home - full of love, within walking distance of his university job. Not a prime neighborhood, except perhaps for off campus housing. So the value of his garden cannot be recouped with the house.
