    Hi all,

    I'm looking for the Jasminum Sambac and the Red Panama Rose (Rondeletia Strigosa) plants. Anyone know which greenhouses I can find these in the Greater Vancouver Area or online shops?

    Thanks

    The jasmine should be readily available in the Vancouver area, even in supermarkets and corner grocery stores. This is the case at least with smaller specimens.

    @Mooudn, were you able to find a jasmine? Plants of various sizes were available at several places today, one of which also had Cestrum nocturnum, Night Jasmine.

    Yes! I found one at Garden works. I think the red panamoa rose is uncommon in Canada though. It's sold at Logees though so not sure why it's so hard to find across the border!

    It's probably due to Canada having a much smaller retail market thus making it less profitable for distributors and vendors to carry lower demand products.

    It seems the 'rose' is a rare plant even in the States (or the world for that matter). Here's another source for it but it is also in the States: Rogiera strigosa.
