Answer: Galax is a native wildflower requiring specialized growing conditions and is slow to spread, so this may explain why many nurseries do not carry it. You will need to search at nurseries specializing in native plants such as Gardens of the Blue Ridge. http://gardensoftheblueridge.com/ An internet search using the latin name as the search term on a search engine such as google.com should yield more sources.
Please make sure that any plants you purchase are nursery propagated rather than wild collected.
