WANTED: Got the Blues?

steff442(8b Portland OR)January 13, 2014

I am looking for TRUE blue seeds to winter sow (or spring sow, if need be) for my new garden. I have moved, and need to start all over. My dream is to cover the yard with blue, white, purple, and pink perennials. Since blue is the hardest to come by, I figured it would be best to ask for them here.

I have only a few FRESH seed types. Most of what I have is cottage garden type seeds from 2010-2011, which I can imagine may not be the best to trade.

What I have for this season (from cheapseeds.com) is:
Sweet William 'mostly pink'
Bellflower Tussock

Also some Ed Hume seed that I just picked up:
Heliotrope 'dwarf marine'
Nasturtium 'dwarf cherry rose'
Allyssum 'snow cloth/carpet of snow'

As I am sure you know, I have an abundance of the seeds from cheapseeds.com, and not as much of the Ed Hume seeds. But I will split the packet with you, if you happen to have any blue flower seeds to trade!

Did you see the posting from firegurl for blue-flowered milkweed Tweedia Caerulea? I believe it would be perennial in your zone.

Nope, I sure didn't. Thanks for the heads-up!

I updated my want/have list, so that it makes a bit more sense what I am looking for, and what I have. I also had some problems with email, but I believe it is fixed now.

I recently received Tweedia from a sase pack, so I am all set in that area. But I would welcome any trades for other blue annuals or perennials!

I am also interested in pinks, whites, and purples. Check out my updated (albeit meager) list...maybe I have something you would like!
