Hi Matt,

Park Seeds is from SC and Plant Delights is from NC, although they
carry more unusual stuff and are more expensive for that.  Southern
Perennials and Herbs (I think that's the name) is from Miss. so they
would be good in the South too.

Cindy's list would have many more, I'm sure, but I don't want to go
look, as I just got home from a hard 13 hours at work, and I have
to be back there in 10 hours, so I think I'll drag myself to bed now....

At least this will give you a start.  BTW, check out the 1999 All American
winners for flowers.  They have 2 zinnias that I want to try for next year,
I can get them at a reasonable price!

Coastal Carolina
USDA zone 8
