Thanks for the link, saw this one already.
I do not buy on ebay......yet.
It is a bit expensive 10 seeds for 5 dollars but if do not find something better elsewhere, I would buy here.
Also checked Garden watchdog....several negative reviews.

Also ordered Calotropis procera seeds from another vendor....flowers look similar.I am not sure of the difference in flowers but I think gigantea gets much bigger ultimately....tree like.
