I had never heard of this plant before and it is intriguing. Two words of warning if you do manage to find it for sale:

Some of the online 'experts' list it correctly as Asteraceae and others list it as a synonym for Epiphyllum oxypetalum, a cactus. I suspect you are looking for the Asteraceae.

This plant is native to the Himalayan Mountains somewhere above 10,000 ft (4500 m). There is no way you can duplicate its growing conditions in Florida.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
