Most oranges sold as "dwarf" are grafted on this rootstock. It is available in bundles of 10 to 100 from wholesale growers. The fruit is insipid and the foliage is deciduous in USDA zones 10 and under. Why do you want it?

You certainly can't count on buying a citrus and having 'Flying Dragon' as a rootstock. As far as "why" I can answer that as the only citrus for zone 6 are the straight species Poncirus trifoliata and 'Flying Dragon'. I grew some from seed and they didn't really have the form I was hoping for. I think they require a lot of pruning to keep them from being either gangly or bushy. I sold one a year or so ago but all I have left are really too tall to ship.

Yes. Durlings puts their seedings in tubes to force linear growth.

I want a twisty thorny bush type of a plant. Say something that resembles the hedge from sleeping beauty.

Well...you picked the right plant. Lots of large, dramatically curved thorns.

Li Jujube will grow that way if you truncate the central leader. It's hardy to zone 5.
