Marigene - i googled around -
French Lilac
http://www.thevioletcarousel.com/salespage.htm

but Highbrow seems to be gone. It was not even registered, the only mention I found was on Steve Reed site- but he doesn't carry it now. Barbara Elkin is in charge of the AVSA most wanted list, you can get in touch with her if she knows anything. I think you reach her through the AVSA committes option.

Good Luck

Hi Marigene, I know Karin of Blossoms,Birds and Butterflies carries French Lilac. Her website is www.Blossoms,Birds and Butterflies.com. She is very reliable and guarantees her plants. Just tell her the davioletman referred you and she will take care of you.

I am not sure if anyone has Highbrow. You may want to try AV Brat Pack or Violet Reflections. These forums have alot of long time growers there that may have one or leaves to spare. If nothing else, you'll have fun reading the different topics. I have been growing for a long time and still learn something new from these folks.

Good luck with your search.

Dave
