Kay brought this to mind with her desire to get a cutting of a shrub from a neighbor's garden. When you get a plant, cutting, or seeds from someone else, it's a "passalong plant". I've got several passalong roses and other perennials. Passalong plants were very popular in the past. During the depression, it was about the only way many women could expand their gardens, and of course, cuttings and seeds accompanied the settlers who moved west. When the plants grew at the new homestead, it reminded the settlers of friends and family "back East." Do you have any passalong plants?
