This is a real poser. I've tried lots of outlets but can't find it.

My Mum had a garden full of Helianthus hirsutus. So this is a very personal request. Does anybody know where I can get a plant. I've tried several sites and theres loads of Helianthus but not hirsutus. All the other Helianthus have smooth leaves where as the Helianthus hirsutus has rough course leaves like mild sandpaper.
