In reply to the very old post above (for those who are still in search of this plant), I purchased mine from Brushwood Nursery (www.gardenvines.com). I did have to put an Availability Notification request in, and then purchased the day I got the email :) Well worth the wait! Was a little slow to start for me, but this could very well have been due to the sandy FL soil I planted it in since I've always received beautiful specimens from Brushwood.

I have no personal experience with this double flowered beauty because I have not been able to find this variety, 'Pride of Augusta.' Anyone know of a source?
