Availability of dwarf/miniature Woodies

Submitted by plstritch on

Can someone suggest some good sources for ordering/obtaining dwarf/miniature woodies?  My wife and I are going to construct a new "bonsai" themed rock garden this coming year.  I have a couple of sources for conifers but am finding it very difficult to find sources for deciduous shrubs like Salix, Ulmus, Betula etc.  

Any help will be appreciated.

Although not deciduous shrubs, dwarf rhododendrons and some woody companion plants are available from the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden in Federal Way, WA.  Two mail-order catalogs are posted a year, with both US and international shipping available.

The 2014 spring catalog is at: http://rhodygarden.org/cms/current-catalog/
