Does anyone know where I can buy this plant? I had this tree in my yard in Carmel, but we sold the house. I would love to plant another one. It was the most amazing tree in our garden.

Thanks

Reportendly an intergeneric hybrid between Chiranthodendron pentadactylon and either Fremontodendron 'Pacific Sunset' or ‘California Glory.'

Whatever the case, it is a glorious tree, blooming in the mid summer (at least) in San Franscisco.
