I was just reading through this thread, and have become quite intrigued.  A
quick look and I only found 2 places that sell the plants.  Any suggestions
as to where might be the "best" source?

Depending on where I would plant, it would either be 6b (almost but not
quite 6a due to elevation) or 7a/7b interface
