As of 2007, this cultivar is extremely difficult to find, either through nurseries or online, unless you order a 5-inch caliper specimen for more than $1000, or unless you're a nursery manager ordering this with hundreds of other miscellaneous plants and place a minimum order of $10,000. I wish Forest Farm would offer this. They do have 'Satin Shadow'.
