    I grew this plant from Strictly Medicinal Seeds and it is performing excellently. They are as vigorous as described above! It is thrilling to add a new species to the landscape, especially a Traditional Chinese Herb. This plant has been growing at a steady, persistent pace without any signs of wear or disease. Just healthy green leave. I can’t wait to watch out flower! Thanks, StrictlyMS Team!
