I'd like to find seeds for them or others in my list. I've got mostly flowers to trade and a few herbs.
If you have Dollar General stores in your area they usually sell liatris bulbs in the spring. Usually 10 for $2.50. I admire you for wanting seeds. They take about 5 years to bloom. You might consider both bulbs and seeds! Just wanted to pass that along.

I didn't know they took that long, I did start one from seed last year but I thought it was just being a runt. I never found this type at the dollar stores, but I might buy the bulbs instead then, want them for native butterflies
kitteh, I grew Liatris aspera, L. pycnostachya, and L. spicata from seed. I winter sowed them in January. All 3 bloomed their 2nd year.
I will look at your trade list. :)
Do any of the following interest you:
Pepper - Red Bell
Pepper - Yellow Bell
Tomato - Beefsteak (2012)
Native Flower - New York Ironweed (V. noveboracensis)
Native Flower - Purple Coneflower (E. purpurea)
Native Flower - Common Milkweed (A. syriaca)
Native Flower - Blackeyed Susans (mixed)
I'm interested in the country gentleman corn and the opal basil. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org (and I think we've traded before within the last few months).
