I believe that Rob Sacilotto of Botanique supplied the plants that you saw
for sale. He used to be employed at Monticello before going into private
business, and he maintains close ties with the administration there. He
also has supplied a very large number of plants to the State of Virginia
for a bog garden, which was built in a park near Richmond.
