    Unusual varieties of hostas. I have about 500 different varieties and am looking for more. Can offer about 1/3rd of these to swap (hosta for hosta), most of which are listed.
    Also named varieties of Agapanthus (I have 4 varieties to swap)
    Will sell plants as well if requested although not set up to post (other than for hostas sent bare-rooted) so buyer will need to collect.
