Plants for postage
Numbers behind each plant are approximately how many I have of each kind. I was going to plant these myself but am downsizing my garden, so if there's anyone here who wants them, they're yours. I'd rather just give them to one person so I don't have to mess around sending out a bunch of boxes to various people. I'm really lacking on time. You can have these for the postage and I have to have it ahead of time. I'll mail them in a large flat rate box, which will cost $14.95 to send. My husband said to just dump them because it is really time consuming to pack them all up for someone, but I just can't dump perfectly good plants. The plants aren't huge (a few inches tall), but I'm confident that they will do fine once transplanted if you make sure to keep them watered.
I hang out on the GW butterfly forum and these plants are geared towards butterflies. Porterweed and Plumbago are nectar plants. Rue is the host plant (the caterpillars use it for food) for Black Swallowtails and Giant Swallowtails. False nettle is the host plant for Eastern Comma, Question Mark and Red Admiral. Amorpha fruticosa is the host plant for the Silver-spotted Skipper. Lespedeza capitata is the host plant for Northern Cloudywing, Southern Cloudywing, and Silver-spotted Skipper. Passiflora incarnata is a host plant for Gulf Fritillaries and Variegated Fritillaries (and Julias if you happen to live in southern Florida). There could be other types of butterflies that use the plants I have listed, but those are the ones that I know of.
I would like these plants go to someone who is into butterflies or who is wanting to get into the "hobby" (for lack of another word right now...I hate to call living creatures a hobby...but I'm not sure what to call it...maybe a mission?). Anyway, I'm trying to help butterflies as much as I can but can only do so much, so I am hoping that some other butterfly loving person will be glad for the plants. If you're the type of person who plants things and kills caterpillars for eating your pretty plants, then these aren't the plants for you, as I'm trying to increase the butterfly population, not decrease it. So, if anyone is willing to take all of these plants for the cost of postage, I will mail them out after I receive the money from you. I am not a rip-off artist. I've shared seeds and plants with people many times and if you type my name in (caterwallin) in the search box, you can read the reviews from people to whom I've sent things, so you can see that I'm on the up-and-up and won't take your money and run. :)
So if you're that person who wants them, post here so other people know that they're spoken for. If you have your email link set up, I will email you. Otherwise, you'll have to email me, but either way, post here so other people know that the plants are taken. Thanks for reading.

*These are approximate numbers and could be a couple more or less. I do know that I have exactly 4 Plumbago though.
