I have been unable to find any places that sell dwarf citrus trees in Southwest Florida.
Is anyone aware of places around here that sell them?
Well, everybody's favorite, Four Winds doesn't ship to Florida. I've attached a link that might help you in your search. As far as I know the only true dwarfing rootstock is Flying Dragon, so look for that before you buy.

I have had very good luck with trees from Briteleaf citrus. There was a problem in the last few years with Flying Dragon rootstock & it is hard to come by right now. Briteleaf has some in progress, and they also have a new truely dwarfing rootstock called US 897. I ordered a Ponkan and a Meyer Lemon on the US 897 stock last fall, and they have done great this year. Very healthy trees. Both have formed a nice structure and are around 4-6' tall. I'd highly recommend the vendor. These have done much better than a Valencia Orange I bought from Jene's.
Here's the Ponkan around July:
Don't have a pic of the lemon handy.
