WANTED: Vaccinium arboreum (Sparkleberry or Farkleberry)

inkfinJuly 8, 2014

I would like to have Vaccinium arboreum (commonly called Sparkleberry or Farkleberry) to grow in my backyard. I would appreciate if someone has seedlings or even seeds to spare.

Updates (August 13, 2014): Finally received a nice and healthy fruited plant (picture posted) from a nursery in Houston. Thank you everyone for your suggestions and help.

What do you have to trade? I'm always looking for new natives to grow.

I look around for some small plants or ripe fruit. I have several V. arboreum.

chemocurl,
Thank you for the link.
kchd,
Thanks for your sweet response and kind offerings. I live in Texas (zone 8B). I am pretty new to gardening and I do not have much varieties to offer as I am a very new gardener and just planted few fruit trees and have purchased some Vaccinium seeds. Currently I have Vaccinium vitis (Lingonberry) and Vaccinium ovalifolium (Alaska blueberry, early blueberry, oval-leaf bilberry, oval-leaf blueberry, and oval-leaf huckleberry) seeds to share with you, if you are interested. Or if you have some specific plant variety in mind, please let me know and I will search in my local nursery to see if I can find for you.
Thank you for offering me some seedlings of Vaccinium arboretum for me. Please email me how can I get them. Thanks, in advance, for your kind offerings.
