Greetings from Myfanwy!
I make no promises (it's currently way too hot and humid to even
*think* about gardening) but I have some irises that really need to be
divided. What kind? Purple (honestly, they started out as three
plants in styrofoam cups that someone across town dug out of her yard
and was selling and she didn't know what they were either).
You don't even need to trade thread with me -- if I get any time to dig
them up before Pennsic I will try to do so. (I started out with three,
divided them the next year, and now have a 3' x 2' clump).
I would offer you daylilies as well, but I don't think this is the
right time to divide those, since they're blooming at the moment -- I
have 'Hyperion' (yellow, old fashioned variety) and the standard H.
fulva (the orange ones that grow wild along roadsides everywhere).
If they're interested in old roses, I may be able to dig up some
suckers, but I don't actually know if they're from the understock or
not. I've been considering trying to root cuttings but haven't had a
chance to do anything about it (and would have to be really careful
about blackspot -- even the York rose seemed to be developing it this
year). If they're willing to wait a year or two, I'd be willing to try
doing it though.
