Planta hermosa

I received the little plant one month ago and I am happy to see that it is growing so well. Thanks again!


Just amazing

It was a great pleasure to receive such a rare and interesting plant from your shop, the shrub was green with many stalks and a few buds, a well established plant. Keeping plant of ethnobotanical interest is one thing but spreading one of the rarest and important species available in Europe is something of great value.
Many thanks !
