I have a variety of garden plants that have grown or spread to the point where I’d like to thin them out some. I will sell them for $5 for any reasonable amount of each species (i.e. $5 for day lilies, $5 for tiger lilies, $5 for sedum, etc) I’m not going to pot them; if you make arrangements ahead of time, I’ll dig while you are here and you can take them home and plant them within a day or two. All of these are perennials; if you plant them soon, they may blossom this year, but will definitely do so next year and each year after that.

Currently I have available:

Star of Bethlehem: these bulbs have flowered and some are starting to die back.

Orange day lilies: these bulbs are up, but nowhere near blossoming (usually in early June).

Tiger lilies: these bulbs are well up and usually blossom in June/July. This is a hardy, TALL variety, with some of the plants reaching 6.5 feet tall (most are more like 4.5 feet tall).

Yellow sedum: this succulent stuff is great for rock gardens. It also looks great hanging from outdoor pots. It has a tiny yellow flower, but the fleshy yellow-green leaves are its focus

Ajuga: this is a fairly aggressive ground-cover plant

Snow-on-the-Mountain: this is a very aggressive plant. It looks great in medium sun areas where it will fill in like a rounded hedge, but it needs a firm border (like a sidewalk or driveway) to keep it from taking over places you don’t want it to be. I have light green or variegated.

Grape hyacinth: these bulbs have already flowered. They look great in the front of a flower bed, as they are relatively short perennials.

Orange trumpet vines: These are a fairly aggressive climbing plant that looks great out on a telephone pole or guy wire. They should NOT be planted by a building or deck.

Spiderwort: These don’t spread very fast, but I have a few to get rid of. Mine are the relatively tall, dark purple variety.

False indigo or Baptista: I have just a couple of these to go. They are slow-growing, but beautiful when mature, with dark purple blossoms and black seed pods.

Lavender: Mine is a purple variety and many of my plants are OLD. Some have been aggressively trimmed and are not ‘pretty’ shaped, but still produce a LOT of lavender for sachets, etc Selling these as individual small plants, or the big guys are available for more $

Violets: these are wild violets, in my lawns, and are either white or purple. They are relatively small plants, but hardy and produce nice flowers in the spring. When not in flower, I cannot tell which color they will be, but I’ll include enough that you will have both colors.

Peony: I have a few volunteers coming up from my heritage plants, in areas I don’t really need more peonies. They range from very light pink to medium-dark pink – won’t know which color you have until they flower the second year.

Purple lilac: we will be taking out a very old lilac this year because it has become so shaded by maturing maples that it is dying off. We’re transplanting a couple of the shoots, but will probably have a few more than we want to keep. You will have to coordinate with us and transplant when we do, just after the spring flowering.

I have several briars of black raspberry that are trying to spread out of the area I want them.

That’s all I can think of for now, although I’m sure I’ve forgotten a plant or two.

I'll remove from this list when I run out of something.


If this ad is still up, the item is available; please do not contact me just to ask that. I'll remove the ad when I'm out of town or when I think it's too late to transplant.

If you are interested, either call or email (no texts). I usually check my computer a few times each day, or you can often reach me quicker by calling the house phone between 7am and 8pm. (click ‘reply’, then ‘show phone number’)
