HAVES LIST for MAG Garden Swap-May 13 2017


DO post a list of the plants you HAVE on this thread. Please add Latin names and cultivar names, as applicable, if you can.

DO list any other garden stuff, such as seeds, tools, pots,
magazines, books, and gnomes, that you wish to swap or give away.
Somebody else might want it!

DO read other people's lists. If you see things you want, please
e-mail the person directly via private e-mail to arrange the trade. To
e-mail the person, click on their name at the top of their post.

DO update your lists when you think of more things you want.

DO feel free to update your member page with your Haves and Wants and
to link your post here to any Plant Exchange page you may have.

DO NOT arrange trades on this thread. Please arrange them via private e-mail.

DO NOT use this thread your Wants. That's what the Want: 2015 MAG spring swap thread is for.

DOs and DONTs for the SWAP:

DO wear a nametag.

DO label your motor vehicle with a big, visible label.

DO mark reserved plants (i.e., plants which you already arranged a trade for) so that other people do not take them by mistake.

DO label your plants. The plant labels do not need to be fancy. Popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, or masking tape are fine.

DO take plants labeled Free or Please Take.

DO ask if you are not sure whether it is ok for you to take the plants.

DO, when you leave, take home the plants you brought that nobody wanted.

DO NOT take anything marked "Reserved" or labeled for someone else.

DO NOT leave any unwanted plants for Gardengramma to have to deal with.


Answer: Yes, you can come even though you don't have any plants to
trade. Your main assignment is to bring food or other items for the pot
luck. (Chocolate-containing foods are strongly encouraged.) Please
discuss your potluck contributions at the MAG Spring Swap Food thread,
not here. Also, note that, in many cases, the reason people are bringing
these particular plants to the swap for you to take home is because the
plants are, um, vigorous. In a few years, you, too, will have
lots of plants to trade.

Happy gardening!

    Yes, rain or shine! (We'll figure out how to accommodate anything Mother Nature throws at us.) I'll bring an umbrella, plastic sheeting/tarp and maybe old blankets to keep things from making the car floor too wet, and maybe an extra pair of shoes if it's really heavy rain... And rag towels to help keep the house from getting wet tracked inside...

    Keren_md, I"d absolutely love some Weigela Java Red if you have enough.
    Kimka, I've always loved your monk's hood and could use some. It struggles here, but seedlings persist.

    Raspberry Wine monarda
    bright blue spiderwort
    Magenta spiderwort

    always have lots of bleeding heart. They've always been pink, but this year i have a mutant white - which must go since I am committed to the pink. ;-)

    I expect to have balloon flower volunteers by the swap, although I haven't seen them yet

    And it looks like for the first time the marigolds that I always get at the swap have successfully seeded, so I can offer seedlings this year.

    I think I'll also have zinnia seedlings - first time they've come up in time for the swap. These are the big ones, 4ft tall. They are Burpee's cut-and-come-agains

  • kimka
    6 years ago

    I've potted up a couple of suckers of my Carolina Allspice athens shrub. Its the first time I've done so and the internodes seem a little long, but they may take off and the leaves haven't wilted. It smells heavenly when the yellowish, greenish flowers are in flower: somewhere between cantaloupe and juicy fruit gum. Unlike the native (with maroon flowers,this one doesn't spread itself around.

  • kilngod
    6 years ago

    I will have some combination of these:

    Fancy: if someone specifically wants some - two variegated solomon's
    seal, a few baby curry trees (but they may not be leafed out yet), rex begonia

    Wintersown babies: Tennessee coneflower, big pumpkins fancy color heirlooms

    Flowers: rudbeckia triloba, dianthus, snowdrop anenome, ajuga, hardy
    ageratum, maybe regular bleeding heart, maybe lenten rose, maybe
    Aquilegia, maybe hay-scented fern.

    Herbs: thyme, oregano, heal-all, valerian

    Cuttings: santolina, sedums, sage

    Shrub babies: eastern bluestar (amsonia), rose of sharon, dogwood, lilac (old fashioned purple)

    Seeds: pack of bicolor hybrid sweet corn seeds, treated.

  • Ann

    I notice that my epimedium (NOID with yellow flowers) is doing really well and I should have a division or two of that if anyone is interested. My epimedium rubrum has also done well and I have a small division of that as well.

  • oogy4plants

    Hi Garden Friends! I am going to come to the swap this year so message me what you'd like from my list so I know what to bring. I will add updates as I find plants to trade. I'm cleaning out my neglected gardens starting with the woodland to find extra: bleeding hearts, spice bushes, woodland aster, VA creeper, mahonia- oregon grape, native flowering raspberry (looks like a magenta rose), ostrich ferns, wood poppies, VA bluebells, Geranium phaeum- maroon flowers, anemone, and catnip. More to come! -Susan

  • mattp321
    6 years ago

    I have some plants I'd like to get rid of... just not part of my plan anymore... will dig if anyone wants them:

    hosta "minuteman" (x5)

    camellia "asakura" ~24" tall now.

    encore azaela "autumn royalty" (needs some TLC/hard prune)

    Hazelnuts "Jefferson", "theta", and "eta"... these 3 are cross-pollinators so I think someone should take all 3... these are the blight-resistant ones but deer keep eating them here I think.

    im not really looking for anything in particular... actually I'm interested in some silphiums maybe, rosin weeds? Or other interesting natives for sun.


  • shadysite
    6 years ago

    Matt, we would be happy to take all three Hazelnuts. So far we dont have deer in severna Park and we are trying some permaculture here. LMK and thanks! The wax myrtle and the New Jersey tea are doing beautifully so far. The wax myrtle on the beach loooks scrawny but is putting out new leaves.

    Hydrangea "Annabelle." This spreads over time so I can dig up as many shoots as there are takers. Here is a link with picture is here:

    Variegated ribbon grass=have tons. Its easy to re-locate, spreads freely, and mine is quite happy in both sun and part shade.

    Japanese Kerria= spreads by suckers, I can dig up as many as there are takers

    Hostas of various colors, sizes=big, small, variegated, blue you name it. Most of them I've lost the tags for so forget the names of.

    Variegated Solomon's Seal

    Also have Artemisia absinthium, *I think*. Dug mine up in Texas where it was described as invasive. It's hardy here (6B/7A), spreads laterally but hasn't seeded in 10 years so it's been easy to control. Quite beautiful silver gray foliage, handles heat, drought, clay, rabbits and deer. Gets a little floppy in midsummer.

  • keren_md
    6 years ago

    ...might be Artemisia 'Powis Castle'

    edible leaves and seeds, 3-6 foot tall cottage flower, attractive to bees and butterflies. Anyone interested? I've never grown it, but we do sometimes add amaranth seeds to our cereal so it's worth a try.

    I have dug up my hosta. The named ones are :

    Halcyon (large - blue vase shaped)

    Guacamole (L, mostly reverted back to a big greenie - still very attractive)

    Wide Brim ( variegated with lighter green margins, mid-sized)

    Hump Back Whale (blue, extra large)

    Sum and Substance ( X large, lighter green/yellowish).

    Gold Standard

    A few unnamed ones as well - all had names, but lost the tags. Most are variegated.

    I also dug up my woodland phlox as the deer ate it to stubs.

    Size indicates full size of hosta. If divided, takes first 1-2 years to establish roots. Extra large ones can take up to 5 years.

    Message me if you would like for me to set aside.
