Herre's the source list for Cornus mas from my book Uncommon Fruits for 
Every Garden. I woulld not worry about buying a plant from the south. A 
nursery shipping now should have had the plant in cold storage if it 
was bare root; if in a pot, it doesn't matter as long as you wait to 
plant it, if necessary. Does C. mas get the sudden oak death?
