Where do I buy a Fugenzon Cherry

I have finally found THE cherry tree that I want in my jgarden. My problem is that I can not find this tree for sale anywhere. I would really appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I'm going to describe the cherry tree to you and maybe I have the wrong name. The blooms change from white to pink or maybe its pink to white. I live in Southern California and my neighbor has this tree, but doesn't know the name.

Look for 'Shogetsu'. You might be thinking of 'Shirofugen', which is called Fugenzo in Japan, but that grows very wide in time. For similar general floral effect on a tree that will be more likely to fit in a normal space plant 'Shogetsu'. Even that one has been measured 40' across (Rockport, WA, 1993).

If you have a large garden or can use a bigger tree for other reasons than 'Shirofugen' may suit.
