We currently have an abundance of seeds from:

White Hollyhocks
Yellow Cucumber
Mixed Rudbeckias with a bit of mixed Coreopsis (yellows, oranges, rust to maroon)


Would like to trade them on for seeds from plants that grow well in zone 7-8. Send us a private message as to what you have to trade and your address to send you seeds.

Hi. I have Cypress Fern seed from last year, and will have oodles more at the end of the season. I would love to trade for some Hollyhock.
Don't know if your familiar with it. but they love to be seeded in the cracks of concrete and stone, and are very aggressive climbers. They start to come up in mid-summer and grow through to late fall. They have a tiny red flower in the shape of a bell. Hummingbirds will flock to these flowers. They love full sun, and dont require watering or fertilizer. Here in Mississippi, they are done by Halloween.
They are perrenial. If your interested, let me know.

Hi Janet,

For clarification do you mean a type of cardinal vine / cypress vine (Ipomoea quamoclit a sub-species "morning glory") ?

Cortland, I have no clue as to the latin genus of this flowering fern vine. I can't see that it would be related in any way to the Morning Glory. The leaves are just like a fern, not heart shaped, and the flowers are tiny, and totally different from the Morning Glory flower. I would take a pic and post it, but this computer does not allow me to do that unless I spend a day waiting for it to load.
I promise you would love it though.

Hi Janet!

They sound very pretty! I was asking about the latin name as that plant is a morning glory and looks fern like. Of concern to me as I am severely allergic to morning glories; minor brush ups resulted in wheels exactly like when I was badly stung by Portuguese Man-O-War and breathing difficulty. Hence, I can not have any sub species mistakenly growing. :/ Are you able to google the latin name and check if the picture matches your plants? That would be great! If they do, I will have to pass on them; but, we can work something out and I can get the hollyhocks to you anyway.

The cypress vine is an annual here in southern va, although sometime it will reseed. Ipomoea is the correct family.
