Jay, I love the Amsonia and never have been able to get seeds, do you happen to have some?
I could trade you for something else if you like? Smiling

I have seeds of the Amsonia tabernaemontana. I'm not in the financial position to send seeds for free, but maybe we can trade. I see you love native plants and wild flowers, so maybe you have something I would like to grow.

I have never sent seeds or plants out of the country, and I wonder if there are rules that prohibit doing that. Smiling

Jay, so your Amsonia are white also! l've started some seeds this year from Amsonia longiflora plants that I found last year by the side of the road. I really like white flowers!

Josephine, I made a few hundred trades with people in the US and my seeds were never confiscated by customs.
And customs here are very easy, never had any problem.

I've traded seeds with those in Europe, no problem. Except that after postage rate changed so much, I'd go to the post office counter to mail them, since I never could remember how much it should cost.

Jonna, you are very kind and I appreciate your offer, thank you very much, but I have been told that since we are restoring a wildscape we should have native plants from local stock. Smiling
