Hazelcrestmike, I see that the plant I have to offer is really Rudbeckia Laciniata Hortensia. I thought it was a Heliopsis when I got it. I will have to revise my notes and listing. When it blooms it is so eye catching. I am guessing all the veterans of this swap have this plant by now!

Good, you guys have been busy!
We are still working on logistics how to exchange on the parking lot without creating group gathering, stay tuned.
I will update this post as we go along and I see what is what in my garden. From the seeds I have grown white lobelia, blue lobelia and heuchera villosa, purple. Heuchera is fall blooming one . Also my experiments with growing hosta from seed resulting in a lot of interesting seedlings. I absolutely can not keep them all so will be sharing some. I will attempt to post pics.
For veggies-
tomatoes- there are large pink/ red, dark and yellow category. Most of them are sweet, indet, and midseason. Most of them I have grown before and like for reliability, productivity and taste. There are about 30-40 varieties this year.

Cherries

Sungold
Sweet aperitif
Iva red berry
Rev Mike Keyes
Orange paruche
Black cherry
Black plum
Maglia
Dr Carolyn
Esterina
Riesentraube
If you requesting tomatoes, please give me general idea how many of which and color. I am happy to bring it to the swap.

Alternatively somewhere after Mother's day weather permitting I should have them avail as a curbsite pick up.

Will also have sweet pepper, non bell mostly, about 4-5 varieties.
Cucumber Wisconsin pickle.
Some Italian varieties of zucchini that I usually have, like Striato D'Italia kind.
Sweet basil.
You can send me tree- mail about veggies and whether you want me to bring them to the swap or you will stop by and pick yourself.

From my garden

winter aconite, ephemeral
corydalis solida- ephemeral
Corydalis ochotensis raddeana, fall blooming, reseeds, annual in my garden.
Pulmonaria officinalis
Epimedium likely rubrum and sulphureum
Seeds for arisaema/ jack in pulpit, maybe seedlings if they show up early enough
Rudbeckia fulgida, not sure on ID as it came from swap but blooms for 6 weeks straight.
fall aconitum, carmichaelii
Impatient balfouri, annual reseeds freely
Impatient glandulifera, various colors/ comes pink white or dark/ , tall 6 ft reseeds.
Now I have a way of growing them and totally love them but those impatients do reseed well. Bees LOVE them.
ornamental onions, purple
Perennial geranium Lily Lowell, dark flower. It does reseed gently so I usually have few clumps to share every year.
Few mature clumps of hosta, named varieties but lost ID.

I will update my post as we go along.

wishlist
wide pots. Does not have to be fancy, plastic, clay, all sizes except very small. I collect hostas and they like them best.
Mint
