    It would seem that these are prone to mosaic virus, which will be in the soil permanently. There is no treatment for this, but you may be able to prolong the death by using fungicide. Just apply it as the package recommends.

    It's hardy in USDA zones 9-12. In your zone 9, it should be able to withstand 20 to 25 degrees F. There is a good chance only the top growth froze and the roots are still alive. Wait till all danger of frost has passed, then cut it down to the ground. It should grow back.

    We don't make vendor recommendations but I did a search as you probably did and I didn't see anything in your country. An article I read echoed your frustration in finding seeds but the article said they are worth the search. Start by asking friends, neighbors, retail nurseries if they know of someone who has one and might let you take a cutting. Good luck!
