LinneaL said: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!


Is this the one I donated a while back?

I believe I did get it from you, without hunting in my files. From a long time ago. Is it something else? I am just going by photos as to ID.

I am revamping the bed where it's in and reducing its territory.

Now that I see everything, I've changed my mind. LOL

Regarding the tall yellow flowering plant, I thought it was Helianthus maximiliani. I don't have it anymore; left behind at my apartment when we bought a house. Was concerned about it spreading here so I never asked for any back. LOL

Offering:
LinneaL - I have some columbine. I didn't plant them but I likely spread seeds from the pods of whatever was here. They're all over. I can bring you a few.
Oerickson - i have mint that grows in the yard I could dig up if that's what you're requesting. please let me know.

Wishlist:
LinneaL: 3 chocolate eupatorium if you have
tini7777 - pink yarrow (I sent you a tree mail)
Oerickson - 2 sungolds, perennial geranium, and if you have any fun hostas.

Rolrod, my tall yellow plant must be something else: not Helianthus maximiliani. Mine is double with no visible center. It will spread, but not in a thuggish way.

I'll have the 3 chocolate eupatorium for you. So far I've only potted small ones (4" pots) but I am sure I can find more. I would be happy to have the columbine. Thanks!

@RolRod

So the yarrow doesn't look so good year. Maybe cus I cursed it last year cus it was humongous. 🤣🤣🤣😭 or cus the winter was to harsh or it's still early or cus I don't know much about growing a yarrow. It was doing good. Therefore I am giving you each the babies that have popped out and are still alive. The plants are small but if nurtured will be beautiful. Hopefully next year this thing will be massive again!😁 unless it dies then I will cry cus the color is so pretty🥺🥺😭.

Hi Michelle,
I have some lengths of black plastic lawn edging that has not been used. Come by to see if this is what you have in mind. You can also pick up Virginia Bluebell that you like. Let me know when to expect you.

No need to apologize. And Welcome!
