Use the link above from the original post to check out the Dave's Garden page about the plant. Near the top are a set of "google eyes" with the words "4 vendors have this plant for sale." Click on that for information on the vendors (members rate the vendors based on ordering experience) or click on the link to their website by clicking on "Purchase this from...." It's a bit better than guessing from a slick add who will come through with a good plant. You can even chose which one is geographically closest if that is important or you think your plants have a better chance of making it.

J&Em is right, that is how I found a seller, I ordered it from Niche Gardens Acanthus x Seemed priced similar to the others.

6+ years later both Acanthus plants that I bought are thriving and put up 2-3 flower spikes each summer.
