I was just reading about this plant on a blog, so started searching for a species suitable to our area. What a trial with all the synonyms. I finally went up to the genus on the USDA site and found mimosa nuttallii. It has two other Latin names. From what I read on it, it is a very prickly climber. Maybe this is why it is not sold??

I am not sure I could get it to grow here without adding sand to the soil. We have clay.
