Looking for any and all hardy tropicals that are solid zone 8 hardy - such as Banana, Elephant Ears, Canna, Gingers, Gloriosa, Aristolochia and I will consider pretty much anything - can't use plants that have thorns like Agaves - I was mugged by a cactus once and swore never again to get plants that hurt ... you know the old saying 'once bitten twice shy'.

Will also consider higher zone tropicals that do well in containers like Tropical Hibiscus and annuals.

Check out my entire plant/seeds lists as I might be willing to trade for something special that is not listed on my Trade List.

Plant list - just click on the "have" under View Only:

Anne I have read many of your posts over the years. Crinum are too much of a monstrosity and many of your hedychiums grew into each other.
I have Ice Cream banana, Jack's Giant EE, (others are too small) cannas Tropical Sunrise, Pure White, Flambe, Bengal Tiger, Cleopatra aka Yellow King Humbert, hedychium Ayo, angustifolium Peach, Gold Flame, Daniel Weeks, Dr. Moy, Kane's Pink, and a small crinum called digweedi. It blooms and reblooms in late summer. All of these are grown outside with no winter protection.
Lmk if anything looks good.

You did Suga but only about where you live and hibiscus cuttings .. I'm interested in your Nun's Orchid - also some of your Black Ginger.
