Anton:

Good to know the memory still kicks in properly at times. Raintree carries Victoria. They also have what they call Emerald Beaut; no mention of its provenance, so you must check to see if it is a match. 
Nick Botner also has Victoria as scion wood. My list of his stock shows no likely synonyms for the others.
Hope you track 'em down,

Dave Liezen
