    I am trying to locate some Parana Pine seeds, haven't had any success so far online. I have heard of some successful specimens in my area and would like to try to grow one myself.

    Perhaps it's possible to import the seed from outside Canada. It looks like small quantities are exempt from the need for import documentation. Have a look at the following CFIA document, section K in particular: The ABCs of Seed Importation into Canada - Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

    A couple sources for seed:
    By the way, there a place across the border in Washington that sells this plant: THE DESERT NORTHWEST - Online Catalog!

    Thanks for the reply, Junglekeeper!

    I was able to buy some seeds off of ebay from Germany, I am hoping that due to the small amount it will pass immigration. I had already looked at those two websites you previously mentioned, looks like both are out of stock currently.
    I emailed The Desert Northwest, so hopefully if my ebay seed shipment turns into some trouble, I can try and import them with them.
