Sources of Plants
Many of the species covered on this site are difficult to obtain. To help you find them, some possible suppliers are listed below. Note that inclusion on the list is not a recommendation or endorsement. Most mail-order nurseries are reputable, but there is always some risk in ordering through the mail. If desired, you can find opinions about some of these nurseries at Garden_Watchdog.
The listed nurseries often have their own difficulties in obtaining plants, and as a result their offerings tend to vary from year to year. Some hard-to-get species are only available sporadically. If you do find a plant you want, you should order it right away, because quantities are often limited and sell out quickly.

For this reason, you might find other possible sources of a particular plant through a general web search. You can also conduct a specialized gardening search at Plant Scout.
