I'm looking for hops seeds or rhizomes.
Also would like some honeysuckle, carolina jasmine and/or trumpet vine starts or ANY type of perennial climbing vine for a very ugly south facing wood fence (zone 7).
I have endless amounts of bamboo roots (not sure of the strain) which is very cold-hardy and grows very tall to trade as well as endless amounts of Liriope(aka.Lilyturf) these border plants do well in shade or sun.
I am interested in ANY type of exotic or tropical seeds or plants if you are interested in a trade or I will gladly pay postage,etc....THANKS!

Bamboo roots

I have trumpet vine, hyacinth vine and passionflower vines. I also have many type of wild and unusual seeds such as Jack-in-the-pulpit, persimmon tree, wolf river apple, giant zanzibar castor bean ect. I would love some of your bamboo. Just let me know if you're interested in anything that I have.

hi billy,
thanks for the reply to my post - i'm so sorry i took so long to get back w/you...i don't go on the FA website on a regular basis and i just found the replys today.oops!
anyway, yes i would definitely be interested in the vines you have, especially the passionflower and hyacinth. are those cuttings or starts you have for the vines?
i'm also interested in your unusual seeds as well.
i'm very happy to trade/share with you the bamboo (rootings) i have of this beautiful bamboo that grows wild all over my property.
i wish i could tell you the specific strain but i can't say exactly. i can send pics though if you like....one thing i can say is it grows very fast and very tall and is extremely cold hardy. it is not the clumping type so please keep that in mind it will eventually takeover wherever you plant it which is a very good thing if you're planting it for privacy or shade. my email is cynthiawest618@gmail.com. please contact me directly and let me know how much you want. i look forward to your reply @ your convenience.
thanks again,cynthia

hi savenkova,
thanks for the reply. i don't really want to have to sell you bamboo roots - i have it growing wild on my property....however if you want some bamboo and don't really have anything to trade you could just forward me a 'paid' priority mail sticker/envelope and i will be happy to send some to you as long as you are covering the shipping costs.
my email is cynthiawest618@gmail.com. contact me directly and we can work something out.
