I am interesting in purchasing a succulent called Burrow's Tail (Sedum Morganianum) and cannot located it at any of my local flower shops. Can you suggest where I could get one in New York City ?

Unfortunately, I do not have the yellow pages for your area, but florists often carry only the most popular houseplants. You might try asking at one of the local botanical gardens for a suggestion for a local supplier. Alternatively, you might contact the Cactus and Succulent Society of America and see if they can help you locate a convenient source. Their web site is http://www.cssainc.org/index.h...

The Long Island Cactus and Succulent Society has a page at

and the contact information I found for the C&SS of New York follows, although I do not know how up-to-date it may be.
