The Q&A Archives: Trying to locate plants for landscaping

Question: I'm trying to locate 1) Canna Tropicanna Phasion, Plant Patent 10569 and 2) the following Alstroemeria varieties a) Zsa Zsa Princess b) Sara Princess and c) Oxana Princess. Is is too late in the year to get these? My landscaper is having trouble locating these. If they are absolutely unavailable, can you offer alternatives that might be available? I'm looking for the same coloring, foliage and size as the first choices. Thank you, Linda Bearden

Answer: Here at the Q & A forum we can help solve gardening problems but we have no way of knowing which nurseries might carry certain plants. In California, most plants arrive in nurseries in late February and early March for the spring season. That's when you're more likely to find the plants you've listed. You might try asking the nursery to special order these plants for you. Generally, if they are available, a nursery can get them for you. Wish I could offer more solutions!
