      Not really, even here in southern oregon the plant tends to stay somewhat green through the winter and returns with vigor as soon as the ground warms up.

    I bought one of the small He Shou Wu plants and it arrived very well packaged. When I planted it in a pot it took right off, very vigorous growth. Thank you.

      If I understand this correctly, the shipping base is Williams, Oregon, USA and the “trade war” has nothing to do with it, except if we want to wear sneakers, they cost 25% more!

      Hello Luiz,
      I’m sorry, we cannot send seeds or plants to Brazil. They are destroyed at Brazilian customs and a brochure is sent back to us, stating that these kinds of things are not allowed into Brazil.
