	Barry Sligh buys these from a local tc lab in NZ.  I know that several
west coast nurseries are selling this, of which I think Heronswood has this
listed.  It is an amazing species, but one that has performed poorly in the
east.  We tried about 100 from Sligh, but all are dead but one.  I hope
this helps.
