Try the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. I got plants from them 6-7
years ago.

It is not grown all over the Southwest and has rather narrow
requirements in my experience, heat being one of them. Really it needs
hot days and warm, sultry nights to grow well. Also, a long
winter-spring dormancy when it should be totally dry (I don't know how
much water it would put up with while dormant). It is a geophyte and
keeps some stems above ground always. Shy to bloom for me. They are
beautiful flowers.
