Do you know of resources for endangered plants and trees that homeowners might order for their own gardens in order to help the species strive?

Years ago I ordered a shad tree from a catalog, and it's the most gorgeous thing in my garden...Very hardy. When I ordered it, the catalog called it an endangered native American tree. If it's so hardy in my garden, why was (is?) it endangered? I have never seen this tree listed in any catalog since...Do you know where it might be available? Or would be unreasonable to presume that homeowners could grow some of the endangered wildflowers, etc., and thus help them survive?
