The RHS website has a plant finder facility that lists suppliers by area.

The RHS Plant Finder lists just 2 nurseries for this plant, both in Cumbria. They both supply plants by mail order:

and

Make sure it's planted in a sheltered spot.  Mine died in its second winter at -15C.  After the first one it decided to become a shrub as all the top growth was dead but it regrew from the base.  The second winter finished it off.

Thanks for all your replies guys. I previously found one on www.treetyme.co.uk but they're out of stock. Also, I just checked www.larchcottage.co.uk and they're not taking any orders for deliveries as from today until september time.. (just my luck that I missed out of their deadline..!!). I'm back to square one now....

Thanks for your advice obelixx - I'll bear that in mind if I ever manage to locate one.!!

When I lived in UK one of my favourite places to go was Langthorns Plantery just outside Dunmow.  They had no end of unusual plants and if there was something special I wanted they would try to get it for me.  Worth a try.

A bit late and not cercis canadensis pauline lily, but you garden have pairs of Cercis for £4.99 and £14.99 depending on variety. I bought 2 pairs of the Judas Tree ones and am happy with them and the price.
