Hello,

I just discovered and joined this forum today (6/28/2012). I have seeds (flowers, vegetables and herbs), and plants (morning glories and four-o-clocks). I also have approx. 50 purple iris bulbs that were given to me, but I do not know exactly what kind of iris -- not sure if they are bearded iris or not. I'm looking for dry shade plants for my front yard.

Hi Lynn and welcome to Plant Swap. Don't know what you mean exactly by dry shade plants. I have hosta, stella doro lilies, astible and such. Don't live too far away from you. What exactly are the plants you are looking for?

Nancy DuBrule-Clemente of Natureworks (Northford, CT) prepared a list of about 100 dry shade plants on her website www.naturework.com. These plants would do well in shady areas where the soil is dry, like my front yard. However, you may live in an area where there isn't much need for dry soil plants, if the name 'Swamp Lady' is any indication ... LOL!

Hostas do well in almost any type of soil, and I would be interested in hostas with interesting varigation and colors. I'm also interested in heuchera (coral bells) if you have any.

Thanks!
