Hey they do have them here. I have seen them at Dabney's and Dan West on HWY 64. Or when mine come out of dormancy I can be talked into some cuttings. I didn't take cuttings this fall so I don't have a lot hanging around like I usually do. I have seen a few in ground here, tho I have tried to leave one out all winter here and it has not survived. You can either dig up every year or they make a nice container plant. This is one of my favorite plants they smell divine.

I usually find them at Bayless Nurseries in Shelby Forest. The are usually about 12.00 in a gallon size container, and are usually in bud or bloom. So far they have only had Peaches And Cream a Variegated variety. Gorgeous White, that turns to Creamy Peach after 3 or 4 days. They scent your entire yard. Only if we have a mild Winter and you mulch HEAVY will they come back from the roots.

My mom has them growing in the ground in zone 7A, so they should do wonderfully in Memphis. They need to have VERY GOOD drainage during the winter---cold+wet=rot.

Any OTHER winter I'd have a couple of five-gallon bucketfuls of cuttings, but I moved this fall and didn't take any. They're tremendously easy to root, although some cultivars are easier than others. Some are hardier, too.
