There are two people you could try

Rob in Future Forests ( futureforests.net )

Hillberry, Crecora ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hillberry-Garden-Centre-Crecora/173149062728486 )

Rentes are growing it here (Do NOT supply the public ) but it could be not potted and bare root supplies only so you might have to wait.

Both of these people will go out of their way to source stock for you.

Let us know how you get on.
