been looking for some sources of E. multiflora (goumi) E. umbellata (russian olive) and Hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn).

Not had much luck locating specimens from the East side of the Cascades. Wondering if people know of good source to buy seed from the more cold-tolerant varieties that would be found in the interior,

OR, if you have some seed and want to do a seed swap I have a large seed bank of perennials and annuals.

Thanks for anyone help on this.

Cheers,
Andrew

On a related not, I really appreciate you including the common names. I don't know scientific names and it is a pet peeve when those who do, use them without including common names. I have neither the time nor desire to learn the scientific names and find that they just get in the way of a good conversation. I am not saying this about you but many people use the scientific names just to show off their knowledge.

Andrew,
I've ordered sea buckthorn from Saint Lawrence nurseries in New York. Not exactly a regional source but their stock was good quality and survivability after one year was about 85%. The year before I got six Leikora variety from some outfit in Oregon and survival was 5/6. Last year most grew well.

Lawyer Nursery out of Plains, MT lists a "wild" sea buckthorn but you have to buy in bulk. Same is true of autumn olive (Eleagnus umbellatum). I got 25 autumn olives from Lawyer last year and the survival was 24/25. Most thrived. Lawyer's stock, at least the things I ordered, was very good.

As for goumi, I have nary a clue on a PNW source. Jung nursery out of Wisconsin lists it in this year's catalog. I've always hesitated to try it as the sources seem to vary widely as to its survivability in zone 4 (even though we've not had a zone 4 winter temp in the three winters I've lived here.) Jung lists their goumi as suitable in zones 4-8.

Have you tried Burnt Ridge in OR or Raintree out of WA? They both have extensive listing of plants. Good luck.

Thanks Mike, those look like a lot of good sources.

I have looked at burnt ridge and Raintree. They have plants but no seed. I am looking to propagate a lot of plants, so seed is an important need.

I went ahead and ordered 600 buckthorns from http://seaberry-hippophaerhamnoides.blogspot.com/ has seeds and the plants

They should be arriving shortly. I will look into lawyers and see what seed they have,

Thanks again,
Andrew

Andrew,
You are most welcome. Have you looked into JL Hudson seeds as a source for some/all of your plant needs? They have an extensive catalog of seeds and could likely help you fill out your planting needs. Check 'em out.
 
Ever since I found this suit I've felt strange new needs. And a tiny ad:
