looking for site for plant/seed sources

Does anyone have info on a site where you can enter a name of a plant/seed and find the companies that carry it for retail sale?
I know you can google the plant name, but then you have to weed out what are not retail sources. I could use this often. Today I am looking for two things- dianthus Beatrix and Salvia microphylla Hot Lips.

TIA

Martha,

Dianthus Beatrix is this Clove Pink.

This is one source of several for Salvia microphylla Hot Lips. Scroll down the page to find Hot Lips.

Thanks, MM.

Select seeds was actually the place where I first saw the Beatrix. I am hoping to find a source for seeds. If not, I'll have to get the plants and create my own seed source.
I am hoping, though, to find a site that is similar to a book that I have seen in recent years. It is a type of source book for locating plants. There's a list of nurseries as the base, then a list of plants/seeds and notated after each variety which companies carry that plant/seed.
Obviously it is something that must get updated almost yearly. It seems like a web source would be a better way to do it than a new book every year or so. And to have just Maine nurseries would be a bonus for us!

I agree, such a website would be very useful. Unfortunately, I don't know of such a site either. So I just search for such information the old-fashioned way. I google for it. (grin)

The publication I work for is working on it but it won't be done in time for this year's seed ordering.
