Bought vanilla bean cuttings when I visited your location on Davies Road in July 2006. Had I known about your seed catalogue, I would have bought more product..cant wait to visit FLA again to buy but will collect product myself. Shipping/handling costs to Canada make buying not cost effective.

Fabulous selection though...it was with great pleasure that I perused your catalogue of seeds.

This is an important plant of the Yoruba religion as practiced in Cuba. The seeds are used for necklaces and to enrich some of the different amulets, which contain a variety of implements.

The leaves go to the various bath for the Initiation of new priests and such.

Name: "Ewé Iré Yeyé", pronounced "Weriyeye", and PEONÍA in Spanish. The liquids that we prepare contain many many leaves of different plants and trees, in addition to Weriyeye.... we drink them for medicinal reasons.

This is a Category I invasive plant in central and southern Florida. This should certainly be noted - especially since you already have a pictogram symbol available for invasive plants.
