    Look over in the "swarm, cutout" section and you will find several in there.

    Just make sure you don't buy evodia seedlings (or anything else) from some scam artists at Wolfes Crossing Farms in Ohio.
    I spoke to them on the phone, everything seemed fine, I sent my check, they cashed it, and when I eventually asked where the trees were I got a single, terse line that a killing frost came and that the trees showed no signs of life. My phone calls to them now go unanswered, as do my repeated e-mails asking for a refund. I have been thinking about getting some seedlings from a board member who posts here from Pennsylvania because I've heard decent things about him. Of course, I heard decent things about those unprofessional folks at Wolfes Crossing Farms, too.

    Ebay has some seeds as well. 20 seeds for $1.00 + shipping. ~$3 total. I got some mid winter. Seedlings are doing well.
