Salvia africana-lutea seeds

I am having a heck of a time locating seed of Salvia africana-lutea-- my usual sources don't seem to have any this year, and I was hoping to harvest mine this last summer- it flowered very beautifully, but set no seed.
Does anyone know of a good source, or have any seed to sell / trade?
Thanks, Dan

Why not try propagating it from cuttings? You might also try Jinny at Seedhunt to see if she has seed for this.

Thanks for the suggestions...
Seedhunt is not offering it this year, and as far as cuttings go, my plants get a bit worked over by the frost and at the ideal propagation time I don't really have any shoots to spare... Even Silverhill isn't offering it this year. Hmm. What to do?
