Where in the U.S. can I buy a "Victoria" Plum tree?

Portland, OR

I am going insane trying to find a "Victoria" Plum tree. I've Googled/ searched for it a million times but find only British growers who have it but won't ship to the U.S.
Does anyone know where I can buy one?

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Sorry - it does seem to be a variety that is geographically limited in availability. You might try contacting some of the American fruit tree companies to see if they know of a way to get one into the US, or recommend something comparable that is more readily available. (The phytocertificates make it pretty cost-prohibitive to try to get one imported on your own.)

Thank you Terry, I'll try that. I have my heart set on that variety and I don't want to give up that easily...

Here are some mail order fruit tree specialists in Oregon: http://davesgarden.com/products/gwd/advanced.php?search_text=&cat%5B158%5D=73&cat%5B157%5D=&state=or&country=XX&sorter=company_name&submit=Search - one of them may be able to help you.

Also, there's a resource in Corvallis for various fruit scion wood: http://www.ars.usda.gov/Main/docs.htm?docid=23587 - I don't know if they have plums, but you may want to contact them and find out if they can assist you in your search.

I gather it is the most popular favorite plum in the UK. I also gather that it has poor disease resistance. Also, your plum should correspond with your zone's chill hours ( otherwise it may bloom too early or late & sparsley) Proceed with caution.
