After lurking for a considerable while, I too, am starting to desire
this elusive and much-storied plant. Does anyone have a source for
this holy grail of specimens? Because most of my collection of plants
is fairly mundane, I have only a handful that might be considered a
fair exchange - cycads, and the like - so buying is more feasible than
Peter, in the San Francisco Bay area, where it's 64F, somewhat warmer
than the Midwest.
