Finding Canarina seed can be challenging. 

Note this:

Guerney’s was purchased 2001 by US owned ‘Garden’s Alive’, a catalog aggregator based in Kansas. Gardens Alive is the same company that purchased the owned the American T&M which they purchased outright from the UK firm in 2009 when they spun it off. 

Gardens Alive have since dissolved the US brand T&M, while the UK T&M remains a different company, shipping only to the EU.

The British Web site has a tiny link at the bottom to the US Web site, which now redirects to Gurney's. Gurney's is a fine company, but it is targeted at beginning growers who want what is most popular. Park Seed has cut its inventory, and seems to be headed down the spiral of only selling what moves fastest, which drives away customers looking for rarer things, which leads to fewer things selling in high numbers, which leads to more things being dropped from inventory....
