    price of the tree "hoa mai" from a few hundred thousand to several tens of millions (USD). But I think if you will buy about $ 500 a tree "hoa mai" very nice bonsai , also bought a tree "hoa mai" normal cost only about 10 USD


    Note: the tree "hoa mai" only sold on the day before the ceremony "Tet" Vietnam's traditional, and "hoa mai" only bloom once a year on holidays, this flower show Features of southern Vietnam,in northern Vietnam is a "hoa đāo"

    Am I right to assume that the holliday was planned around the flower period of the hoa mai tree?
