Hello, I am a 23 year old intern turned farmer in Port Angeles and I have the desire to start a new trend/cash crop with Llex Vomitoria!  I am doing other homegrown tea sales as a chump change side income so I can buy shoes.

It's just like yerba Mate but good to grow up here, the only issue is Seeds can take up to 3 year to germinate, which ain't to bad in the long run, it's just I'd like to start iwth some Cuttings so I can get them going next year. 

So if you have any russell@tomorrowgardens.org
Or if you know where to get them, I am all ears.


    Thanks for your time,
        Russell

Just saw... you can find these plants on Etsy.  I might have to give 'em a try!

Edit: I just bought some.  Lol.

Experimental Farm Network, which keeps luring me back with their hard-to-find propagules of various kinds, lists seeds for two kinds of Yaupon: the standard upright one and a type with a weeping growth pattern.  They are currently sold out of the standard one (although their catalog listing is good reading) but they still have seeds for their weeping variety.  They're selling these as botanical samples for experimentation and research, so it's a bit of a crapshoot what you'll get from these plantings, but I enjoy that sort of adventure.
