Ask for information regarding the U.S. Plant Germplasm System and the
National Seed Storage Laboratory at Fort Collins, Colorado. In addition,
there are Regional Plant Introduction Stations at Griffin, Georgia;
Geneva, New York;  Ames, Iowa; and  Pullman, Washington.  They have many
plant introductions of various wild and cultivated species in storage at
these locations.  I am sure that they'll honor your request if they have
the species on hand.
