Shrimp plant?

Hi, can anyone please help me. I have been looking for a shrimp plant "Justicia brandegeana" or seed to grow one. If you have one to sell can you please let me know.
Regards
John

    In the last year we have had more enquiries for this plant than just about any other. Seems no one in the UK has it for sale. The two nurseries listing it in the RHS Plant Finder were out of stock when last contacted. You can get seeds sent from the US: http://taste.ecrater.com/p/3583054/justicia-brandegeana-6-seeds-bronze-red. Might be worth buying a lot and offering the plants you grow on this site. You'll have a ready market!

    If nobody here can help you with a plant or seeds, good garden centres sell it in their houseplant section. I saw one a couple of months ago at one of my local garden centres.

    I have been looking for this plant too. Strange that none of these garden centres make it available online. Geoff - can you give me the name of the garden centre you saw it in. They might sell it direct.

    Hi Geoff & Peter,
    I have tried the garden centres that I know and they don't have it. There is a supplier in the US but the only ship within the US.

    Geoff,,,,,,,Can you please let me know the garden centre name and location that you saw the plant in.

    John, Peter
    It was a small local independent garden centre on the outskirts of Peterborough, but they don't have mail order or anything like that.
    Presumably you've seen Jeremy's posting about the RHS Plant Finder - may be worth putting in a request with them - http://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/Nurseries-Search-Result?query=29317&name=%3Ci%3EJusticia%20brandegeeana%3C/i%3E

    Geoff, I did try the two links on the RHS with no success.
