Yes, the drawing draws nigh. Thanks to generous gifts of acorns from wonderful folks on this site, I have enough to share with you. I will exchange 5 acorns (enough for a ticket) to the first 20 that post a picture (or pictures) of plants they have received as gifts or exchanges from this community.
I'll start (I've already got 10 tickets)

Thumb of 2019-09-23/pdermer1x/f62ba6 : Verbascum 'Snowy Spires'
Thumb of 2019-09-23/pdermer1x/dd83cd : Salvia 'Coral Nymph'
Thumb of 2019-09-23/pdermer1x/a3347b : White NOID peony

Thank you to all the gifters (and yes, exchangers are generous gifters!) on this website!

Please save the acorns for others, I have enough. But I do want to show a few of many plants that came from members here at NGA. Some were gifted and others were from trades.
I love this community.





This is just a drop in the bucket of plants that were either bought, traded or gifted by our members.

Ooh - that hellebore is gorgeous! I've always gone for the single darks, but, Wow! And I love onions, but they keep getting away from me. Though I've always wanted a Schubertii...
Thanks for sharing these! It's hard to pick just a few to post, isn't it?

Hi pdermer1x. The allium posted above does not seem to set seed and show up everywhere. Very well behaved.

Diana -Beautiful whites - so clear! And the red is lovely. Lynn--Unfortunately, I've had experience with plants that struggled in one of my former gardens just take over elsewhere. I'll be happy to enjoy your allium pictures from afar! (want some voodoo lily, crocosmia, iris tectorum....?) Smiling Sighing!

Diana ~ I am shocked. I didn't know that Blue River II would produce seeds, and that they would come true! That is my favorite, but I already have it. Thumbs up

Adriatic Waves is awesome! Love the yellow on Better than Butter, and I didn't think that orange and pink would go together so well but Bottle Rocket is a beauty!
I am LOVING these pictures and this thread. Thanks for playing along!
