I found an overseas wholesale nursery that has Chinese Star Anise (Illicium Verum) plants for sale. They are fairly expensive although within what I would pay for one - the problem is, I have to purchase 20 of them

If I can find U.S. buyers for 15 of them at $60. US each, I can buy the 20 of them then ship individual ones to whoever purchases them (that price includes a few dollars for the shipping to you) they are 10-15 inches tall and will be shipped legally to the U.S.

Please let me know if you are interested. If you have another source for this plant, I'm willing to buy it from you instead of going to this expense of importing them (If I can find enough interest) I live in an apartment and definitely cannot afford or have room for 20 of them

Or, one could just pick up some cheap Star Anise and seed them out?

seeds are only viable for a couple of days and the only seeds I have found online are nonviable (I have purchased many and already tried)
