I will collect some seeds for you Guida, I'm not sure if I can send a plant overseas without a whole lot of hassling forms. They come up from seed very well:)

I found most of my seeds on line. I got these from spring hill or park seeds, I can't remember which. I'll get some of these to you as soon as they mature:)
