'Lime Zinger' Xanthosoma Sagittifolium where to purchase

Greetings,
Can someone please direct me to a merchant they have had success with. I want to purchase this plant for the 2010 spring season. I spotted it at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morristown,NJ and was inspired to grow this for next spring in my garden.
Thanks Joe

Kartuz has it in stock. So does Woodlanders. http://www.woodlanders.net/index.cfm?fuseaction=plants.plantDetail&plant_id=907
I've never bought plants from Woodlanders but have bought from Kartuz several times.

Here is a link that might be useful: Xanthosoma Sagittifolium

Brent and Becky's Bulbs carries this plant. If ordering it elsewhere I'd be careful about the sources - when I did a Google search I noticed that many of the nursery names that popped up first have very poor reputations (check out gardenwatchdog.com).

I've grown 'Lime Zinger' for several seasons and it keeps getting better every year - the leaves are enormous and it makes a great accent. I just cut it back heavily and potted the plant to overwinter it indoors under lights.
