I am looking for Vaccinium palladium plants.  Does anyone know where I can buy or trade for some?  The only nursery that I can find that sells them has terrible reviews. Commercial varieties don’t grow very well here in western Missouri. V palladium is supposed to be native to the area but must be either rare or not very noticeable. I have never seen it.

Possibly both rare and difficult to spot.  USDA Forest service database link indicates it is very much an understory plant adapted to certain tree types. Exists in isolated populations.  Read the page and and then look for the associated forest type in your area. Also consider whether you can provide such habitat.  Much of the discussion on permies about blueberries and hackle berries is that hey do not thrive outside of there natural habitat.
