HAVE: A few things to start trading

I was lucky enough to go to a friend's house who was working in her garden. She gave me a few things to start my new garden. I planted some and kept some out to try and start trading for things I wanted.

I am looking for fragrant plants to go under the living room window. This area gets afternoon shade from about 2pm til dark. (I am thinking something like 4'oclocks but since I don't know a lot about plants, there may be something else)

I have a spot in my yard for sun plants as well as another spot for shade.

I am also looking for night blooming jessamine to put out in the yard and night blooming cereus. I'm not doing so well at propagation, so if it's rooted, that might be better.

Here's my updated list of things I have to trade:

Seeds I have to trade:
Castor Bean
Arum italicum - Italian arum bulbs (about 5-10 bulbs, would have to check)
Daffodil bulbs (lots but none named)
Amorphophallus konjac bulbs (Special trade)

Plants I have to trade:
Several NOID Green Elephant Ear bulbs
Several NOID Canna Bulbs

The following plants were given to me to help me start trading. I only have 1 trade each of these
Oenothera fruticosa - Sundrops
NOID Hellebore
Astilbe Pumila Chinensis
Chelone obliqua - Pink Turtlehead
Mondara Bee Balm - Marshall's Delight
Euphorbia lathyris - Mole Plant
Penstemon - 'Husker's Red'
Physostegia virginiana - Obedient Plant
NOID Peony that looks as if it will bloom red
Mayapples
Christmas ferns
Lady ferns

I have photos of everything, so I can show you what I would be sending.

Since I don't have much to start with, I'm probably going to have to be picky about what I trade. Such is the life of a new gardener.

Neither of these - night blooming jessamine nor night blooming cereus - will be hardy for you. You will need a greenhouse or a warm, brightly lit area to keep them over the winter.

I have tons of 4 O'clock seedling, not sure it will survive after I pull and ship. But, I can try. Or, I can look some seeds around it.

Let me know if you are willing to trade those with your konjac bulb.

Happy gardening.

If you still have them and are amenable to training, I'd like: Chelone obliqua, Marshal's Delight beebalm, and Mayapples.

I have Queen of the Prairie, Balloon Flowers, Rose Campion, pampas grass, Opuntia humifusa, Groundnut, 'Elizabeth' bellflower, fringed leaf bleeding heart, lilac... See anything yet? This is off the top of my head. I can cut and root a lot of other things. Beauty bush, viburnums, magnolia, camelias, etc.
