Hi my name is Jorge Rivera and so Landscaping and Maintenance in Marin County north of San Francisco, CA. I saw the beautiful plant Rojasianthe at the San Francisco Arburetum in one of my Plant ID class. I really really liked this plant and would like to know if any of you have any info as to who distributes such a beauty. I certainly would love to start using this plant and my clients are also dying to have it in their yards. I already tried Sloats Garden, Sunnyside Nursery and Westend Nursery in Marin. If anyone has some info please let me know at vallartame@yahoo.com Thanks
