I am interested in purchasing or swapping rice seed. Right now I am looking for an ornamental red Oryza Sativa called Red Dragon from Viet Nam.

Hello fencewalker. I grew Black Madras a few years ago when rice became a popular ornamental and really enjoyed it.
I can see your quandary. A quick search doesn't yield much more than some marijuana sources with the same name. Do you follow Nan Ondra's blog? She is very nice and I suspect if you ask her on her most recent bog post she might be able to help you with a source. It looks great in her garden.
Re-reading that post, I see that Nan says it can be hard to find, but suggests "Avant Gardens" as a source. Old post, but still valuable.

Thank you for your suggestions and help. I have been looking now for 3 years have have scoured the web to no avail. Lol.

Sadly, I have found many, many State Botanical Associations and even Rice Conservationist Groups that list the "Red Dragon Rice", but when contacted state they collect but do not disperse their seed.

Hmmmm? Does that seem odd or what? I guess collecting seed and asking for donations is big business these days, but don't disperse the seed that is too much like real work. Rolling on the floor laughing

Golly, I hope I am wrong. Sighing!

2017 (Oryza Sativa L) For Sale or Trade!!! I tip my hat to you.

Hi Everyone. I am still here and have a growing amount of paddy rice for ponds and wild life.

Yes, for those homesteaders I might even be able to help you too now Hurray! .

Anyway! I will trade rice seed for rice seed or if you know of someone actually selling rice seed here in the USA (if I do not have them on my list) I will trade free seed for that information as well... What a Deal Angel
