You don't mention where you're located. There is a nursery in Florida that sells a 3 gallon potted plant, but it's not cheap.

I tried to order this one from them...just now...got all through checkout...before the credit info...when they got my zip code...there was a note that they wouldn't ship to my zip code...
That's the $29 or so for the plant...:$25 shipping and fees almost $60.. And they won't ship to me...I've never heard of such a thing...it goes in the box..it all takes about the same time.. A few days... USPS... Fedx ...UPS... Grumbling Grumbling Sighing!

And the Queen is celebrating her 90 th birthday now too...where's the plant..

I just went and looked at that site again. You have to look at the fine print. It's part of a bigger network called LocalPlants.com and they limit shipments to local zip codes only.
Try going directly to the vendor's website: http://thewildpapaya.com/
It looks like they'll ship anywhere.

Gordon I am a ebay seller and a registered nursery Calf has made it so hard I stopped shipping there. No money to be made not much to begin with but if you have to pay 50 bucks for them to inspect plants you are going to ship. Come on fire ants lol

MKB....well if you are supplying fire ants along with your plants I'm sure they are concerned... What they need is a colony of extra big and hungry hybrid fire ants there..
I'm in NYC though...so no problem shipping here...do you have the Queens Wreith for sale...I'd put out of my mind getting one just yet...but maybe I need another big vine to deal with...
Silly me I planted a second stictocardia (. Hawaiian Sunset Vine. )(up in the garden ...one vine with hundreds of feet of growth in a season wasn't enough..now it is starting to flower ...and resolve and concerns are a distant memory..
