RHS lists two nurseries here:  https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/Nurseries-Search-Result?query=136650&name=&view=listView
I'm afraid this RHS data is not always reliable and is not necessarily updated when a plant is no longer stocked.  Cross Common Nursery don't list it on their website and Wolverton Plants don't have a website and don't do mail order.  They do have a Facebook page, however.

Rob Potterton might be worth a go, I'm sure I've had some from him myself?
