You mean retail sellers. I was in Hawaii attending meetings of the International Heliconia Society in 1987 and 1990. The place was full of exotic tropicals and I visited many commercial farms growing a wide variety of Heliconia for cut flowers. These commercial growers traded among themselves. But, I didn't see any garden centers or even florist shops, except, maybe, one. In Hana, Maui, there was a Mr. Howard Cooper, who I believe sold retail. I doubt that he is still alive.
