Where to find Asimina/Paw Paw species (not triloba)?

(Jay/Jax FL/Zone 9a)

Having the hardest time finding a pawpaw able to grow in my zone, only sources I can find are for the large tree species (Asimina triloba) whose Southern range seems to be confined to Northern Georgia which isn't suitable for my region. Anyone know of places I can order one? Can be seeds, anything. There's several FL native species: pygmaea, obovatum, tetramera, incana, etc.

I plan on attending a few native plant club meetings in a neighboring town to see if they can get me connected but otherwise, not sure what to do.

Btw fruit quality doesn't matter a ton for me, mostly doing this because I have seen a zebra swallowtail a few miles from my house and want to see if I can establish a population in my yard.

I have no experience with this vendor, but saw it online. They appear to have a couple of the species you mention.
