Brenda, While I can't vouch for either of these nurseries personally, I think they both look promising. These were the closest nurseries to you that I could find that specialize in Gesneriads like Episcias. The first is called Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses, Inc. They specialize in breeding African Violets and other Gesneriads. Although they are physically located in the state of New York, they take orders by telephone, mail or online. They have been in business for over 50 years and have a large selection of Episcias on their site, including descriptions, growing directions and several colored photos. According to their website, they will only be shipping Episcias until the end of September due to their sensitivity to cold. On their site you will also find the dates of upcoming flower shows where their plants can also be purchased. Here is a link to their site: http://www.lyndonlyon.com/index.html
Another nursery that specializes in Violets and other Gesneriads (also in New York state) is The Violet Barn. Their site offers detailed biographies of the owners and is full of helpful information on ordering and growing Episcias. Visit them at http://www.violetbarn.com/

Trish Thanks but my Wal-Mart does not sell them. I wish that they did.
Join the Garden Web and in the garden exchange section ask for some. Also, there is an excellent forum in the Garden Web at this address...
