hard to find Ipomoea macrorhiza why?

Jackson, SC(Zone 8a)

I been looking on the net to buy seeds. I have one I want to cross with another one. Just to have a good gene pool. I cant seem to find any seeds anywhere. Why is this one so hard to find? what is it that this one is so rare?

summerhill seeds had them, not sure if they still do. they are an excellent company
woodlanders have them but their watchdog rating isnt the best

I tried summer hill and they are not listed. thanks

wood landers costs 14 dollars to ship to me and i live right here with them. their rep is not a very good one been to the nursery myself wasnt to happy to say the least.

no one has seeds to share

Marie, I used to have some nice tubers and seeds, but the tubers froze and I shared all the seeds, so, I dont' have anymore. You might try Georgiavines, she has some called big foot mg, I think they are the same ones as machrorhiza, that is what I did and am going to try those to see if they are the same. If you find some, let me know too.
