Matelea decipiens - Where can I get it?

geoforce(z7a SE PA)May 25, 2006

A saw a note in the name-that-plant forum which had a link to photos of this plant. Apparently an Ozark plant of zone 6-7, it looks almost too neat to believe. Being an old Okie hillbilly from the Ozark foothills, I really would like to grow this. As a member of the milkweed family, it should be fairly easy from seed. Actually all the species of this genus look interesting and enticing.

Does anyone know where seed for it can be had? The only source I could find in a fast Google search had a 'sold-out' on it.
