I need a US mail order source for Sisyrinchium striatum 'Aunt May', aka. Yellow Eyed Grass 'Aunt May'. So far all the sources I've found are in the UK. Any help would be appreciated.

Rather have plants, but that isn't the same plant I'm looking for...that one is S. californicum...I need S. striatum specificly 'Aunt May'.

Yes! That's it, and wow, it is pricy...and for only a 3" pot, too. Not sure I want it that badly. Thank you!!

Well maybe I'll run into another nursery somewhere with them. I'll keep my eye out.

Here is another California company that carries it. But you will have to call them to find out the size and price. Weird website not to have this information available.

and that's all I could find on my strangle little search engine.

I've ordered several times from Digging Dog...I may get it from them, but it isn't the exact one I want. 'Aunt May' has variegated leaves, the regular one doesn't.

Oh, and the other website is wholesale which is why they don't list prices, etc. Thanks for looking!! :-)
