RE: [AZ] Locating plant
The really nice form is the mountain form which stays compact and spreading. Shown here in seed on the Appalachian trail in NC/TN.
It is as Mike says relatively easy from seed or cuttings. Also fussy! I had an old plant 10 inches high by 15 wide that up and died. So I planted out 4 small plants and only one thrived. But it was lovely this spring. I heard its now a Kalmia.
Leiophyllum buxifolium (Sand Myrtle) [Ericaceae] An attractive dwarf shrub of neat, compact, rounded habit to 2 feet. native from New Jersey Pine Barrens to Florida. Small glossy foliage and star-shaped white flowers in terminal clusters. Prefers moist, humus-rich, acidic soil, part or deep shade. Z6-8/PT/EV TB $8.50 E White

We have not grown that for over 5 years.
So have no idea who would have it.

It is pretty abundant in the wild near our home, easy to grow from seeds and root from cuttings. But it doesn't like every site. The plants in our yard get leggy pretty quickly.

What wholesalers have it? I might consider selling it.
I am trying to locate Sand Myrtle. Wholesalers have it. Retailers including Rare Find are sold out.
