I thought I would offer some divisions of some of my pond plants and see if anyone would be interested in trading for them.
I have several divisions of both hardy water lilies and Japanese Sweet Rush (Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'). Both are winter hardy to at least zone 5. Water lilies are of course submerged deep water plants and the sweet rush makes for a nice marginal plant with water up to (or even above) its crown. Although it can also be grown in the ground like a “normal” plant it likes moisture and so I always use it in the pond.
The water lilies are divisions from my white, or possibly yellow, flowering water lilies divided last fall and are starting to send up the first leaves of the season now. I cannot guarantee with 100% what color you may get although if someone would want to trade for more than one water lily I can try to choose some from different pots and with different looking leaves and maybe get a variety? (no guarantees though since I have both colors and at this early stage in the season their leaves look identical).
If you also have a very empty and sad pond I can send some cuttings of parrots feather (a quick growing submerged/oxygenator which can be planted or just thrown in the pond as is. Although I wouldn’t want to just trade for those, they could be a sorta side plant to go along with something else for someone with a pond that needs a bit more to fill it in (and fill it in parrots feather will...you only need a little at first)
I have various sized divisions of both plants and would love to trade for maybe nepenthes or sarracenias. Although just pm me any offers if you are interested in trading for something and I will chose whatever offers appeal to me since I could also could use several smaller, low to the ground things such as hardy drosera or some VFT for my bog garden which is entirely composed of tall sarracenia and could use some variety. So basically, would love Neps, etc. but open to many suggestions and other offers too.
Well just let me know if you are interested in anything, I will post some pics here but if there is something in particular you may want more pics of just ask.

Pots of Mixed Water lily divisions just coming up in various 6 to 12 inch pots. (They look a little scraggly out of water but I figured this is the best way to show them. They will get many more leaves, these are just the first ones since they are still waking up) All following pics recent within a week.
