    Peonies like to be moved in the fall but I have had success moving them anytime after the frost is out of the ground. They don't always bloom when moved in the spring but if you take a big root ball and don't disturb the smaller feeder roots too much they do just fine with a little extra care (water). Those deep pinks of yours are beautiful! I used to have that color, they came from my grandpa G's yard. I moved those things around with me for almost 15 years but I lost them when the X burned our house down.:(
    Deer do not like peonies, or iris... Lots of iris over here! I tend to refer to the Old Farmer's Almanac for a lot of my info... http://www.almanac.com/content/deer-resistant-plants.


    As I sit here looking at my new water timer, which has sat on my desk since last August, I wonder what a 40 lb. rootball costs to ship? Our water pressure here blows those things apart, besides I like to hand water... I deadhead, count honeybees and get to see how well the weeds are growing! :ep
    I could send you some bare root stock in September, that should give them time to get some feeder roots out before winter and blooms next year.

    The closest thing to an organization that I belonged to I pretty much disqualified myself from 7 years ago when I sold my Harley. We did have swap meets but those were mostly motorcycle parts and leather clothing... not much of a flowery type group.:lol:
    (@Carol Dee the picture you just painted for me will have me chuckling for days to come... greasy bike parts laying around the yard with marigolds and petunias poking thru and window boxes full of posies hanging off of Dirty Dan's and Ugly's house! :gig)

    Anytime you are ready, they grow like weeds for me, probably because I don't like raspberries much, they are more for the DH and my dad...o_O

    Berries are ON this year: 20170611_174131.jpg

    Just adding to the ad... I figure if I get most of it posted here it will be much easier to work up a CL listing when I am ready. (Hopefully by fall...:hu)
    Is there a thread here that explains how best to ship plants?

    several different hostas: 20170618_102207.jpg
    Grandpa G's daylilies and great-grandma's sweet peas: 20170702_191304.jpg
    (The sweet peas are the perennial kind. No smell and I have been told they are considered an invasive weed in some areas.)
    another 'weed', lamb's ear: View attachment 20662
    stella d' oro daylily: stella d' oro.jpg
    sedum, Autumn Joy?, and that purple daisy like plant next to it: DSCF0160.JPG
    globe thistle: 20170618_205235.jpg

    ...and still more, good grief where did they all come from? I knew I liked my 'flowders' but taking pics and listing each has been a real eye-opener for me! :ep

    Lovely Loco!
    I may be able to swing a fall swap, as work is slower and I'm not so crazy busy with life. I have mints - orange, pineapple (or apple? the variegated kind ) and spearmint. Maybe some Echinacea, Japanese anemone and anemone sylvestris and I forget what else you were looking for. I like your grandpas daylily, and you are correct about the perennial sweetpea. It's not too bad if it's not planted in a mixed border, but is hard to root out if planted with other perennials.

    That lambs ear you have pictured is Rose Campion (Lychnis coronaria). I would be interested in some of that if you have some to spare this fall.

    I may be interested in paying you for some plants when things cool down some around here. Looks like you have plenty to choose from , nice pics.

    @thistlebloom thanks for the ID! I have gobs of the rose campion, large established ones and a few hundred from it reseeding itself. The chickens got to that flowerbed so I won't be doing much to it until fall now that they ate all my lupines. :hit (I can dig up some of those raspberries for you too....;))
    @Collector, Bring pots, not pennies! Whenever you are ready all you need to do is come point and I will dig 'em up. All the payment I need is knowing that somebody else will enjoy them. Just can't bring myself to throw away a perfectly good plant, which of course has led to overcrowding...:oops:

    The weather has turned very hot very fast so I won't be doing much except watering and weeding until fall now myself. That and keeping the hens penned!
    My last lupine: 20170618_102556.jpg
    I used to have over a dozen. Hopefully I can get some seed from her for next year.
    :somad :rantchickens :rant :somad

    @Nyboy I think my yucca heard you - it is flying at half-mast...
    20170709_190406.jpg
    This is the same bunch from the previous pic, they didn't winter very well this year.
    I had problems getting them to bloom when I first got them so I gave up on them and moved 'em to the rock bank: Darn things started blooming... seems they like cruddy soil, hot spots and very little water.
