    Hmm... I was going to suggest Heronswood Nursery as a possible source, but I see it is sold out for this year.

    A Google search reveals that Forest Farm Nursery carries it, and ships surface west of the Rockies. They're located in Williams, OR - that's a bit of a drive away for you, but should be near enough to ship without much problem. Plus they are in-state.

    It shouldn't be a problem growing this in Eugene - as you can see, it's grown both to the north and south of you, so go for it. A very nice choice, too.

    And the inflorescence, from the same accession.

    Very nice post with a ton of informative information. I really appreciate the fact that you approach these topics from a stand point of knowledge and information
    instead of the typical I think mentality that you see so much on the internet these days.

    Looks nice.

    The berries remind me of Clintonia.

    I'd consider this one as long as some have successfully grown in our area for 10 years.

    An earlier post mentioned Williams, Oregon. That's the same community where a man lives, who does Arborisculpture, or living tree art.
