I'm trying to extend pollinator resources even earlier into the season so I'm looking at native spring ephemerals.

Here's my wish list

Claytonia caroliniana (Carolina spring beauty)
Claytonia Virginica (Virginia spring beauty)

Dicentra canadensis (squirrel corn)
Dicentra cucullaria (dutchman's breeches)

Dodecatheon meadia (shooting star)

Eringenia bulbosa (harbinger of spring)

Erythronium albidum (white trout lily)
Erythronium americanum (yellow trout lily)

Hepatica nobilis (hepatica, liverleaf) - any varieties

Jeffersonia diphylla (twinleaf)

Polygala paucifolia (gaywings, fringed polygala)

Sanguinaria canadensis (bloodroot)

Thalictrum thalictroides (rue anemone) - on the fence here. Widely noted 
to repel wildlife but not sure if that includes bees to some extent.

And not in the spring ephemeral group, but wanted wildflower additions:

Aslepias purpurea (purple milkweed) - can't find this from local 
sources. Expanding search.

Cassia marilandica (wild senna) - cloudless sulfer butterfly food plant

I'm sure I'll add a few others to the list in short order.

Anyone?

Urban Wild,

I have bloodroot available. I don't see any 'haves' on your plant list...are you looking to buy or trade?

Are you looking for plants/bubs or seeds?
I am trying to acquire most of the plants you listed myself, so I can't really help you now.

In a perfect world, I'd be rescuing these from a site prior to it being razed by construction. I really don't care whether it's by plants, seeds, bulbs, etc... Or all of the above. I really just want to get started on this next phase.
