Bougainvillea's in Brooklyn, NY

I am trying to find a place where i can buy a Bougie in a pot here in Bklyn...and have not found a place. I can go far up North to Maine, Vermont and buy them there when on vacation, but not here that i am aware of. I resist goiing to the Botanical gardens for one has to pay an entry fee and they do charge more than nurseries. I've called some local nurseries and they don't stock them. Anyone know of a place here?

RE: Bougainvilleas in Brooklyn, NY

You want something that not many other people in Brooklyn want, apparently. Have you tried Asian grocery stores? Sometimes down here in the DC & Baltimore area, the biggest ones have a plant vendor in the part of their store that is like a mall, usually selling orchids and bonsai starts, and that ubiquitous faux bamboo. Some places' shipping charges are not much worse than a couple subway or LIRR trips:
