The RHS Plant Finder shows that at the time of writing this is listed by Burncoose Nurseries in Cornwall.  It may be safely said that whatever Burncoose are offering it is not this species.  The Plant Finder makes no value judgement as to the veracity of the names supplied by nurseries that it lists.
