Dear all,

Does anyone know where I can purchase these?

I would like to present a specimen to a friend of mine related to Donald Petrie (who first identified the plant).

New Zealand suppliers refuse to send them to the UK for fear of Japanese Knotweed type behaviour, or so I have been told.

Several British growers no longer supply this plant.

Thanks in advance.

I must tell you that in Holland we have them often on the market . Ik sold them myself but it is a plant for New Sealand total other temparature than here . The plant smells delicious but you must have luck to keep it
Did you look on e-bay and only typing the name in google for it should be also in England. It was here a special motherdays plant

I think that's is BS as I lost mine some years ago and NO one do grow it in NZ.
The plant there used to be grown in Petrie's garden in Invercargill was killed when some fool decided to redo that part of the Queens Park. (It was a very fine specimen)
