I did a google search and found the vendors listed below who apparently carry Ribbon Bush (Homalocladium platycladum) but none of them are in Virginia:

@plantladylin thank you so much for all those links and your research! I really appreciate that.

I had found some of those and I put myself on waitlists at the ones that are out of stock. I held off using those sites that have them in stock because the shipping is $11-16. For buying plants online should this be my expectation? I just feel silly buying a plant for $4.50, but paying $16 for shipping.

Maybe you can inquire at local nurseries in your area as to whether or not they could order them.

Don't hesitate to pay the expense for shipping. Your seller is boxing and priority shipping - all to protect your plants.
I guess if I bought plants, I wouldn't want them bagged & sent 'ground transportation'. Thumbs down

Those are not bad shipping rates at all. I always get more then one plant when I order from a online source so shipping cost per plant is reduced.
