I am interested in growing a Chinese Bayberry ( Myrica Rubra ) plant. I know seeds are available, but I have not been able to get the seeds to germinate. 1) Where can I buy a seedling plant? 2) Can the plant be grown in Northwest Florida Zone 9b ? My name is Lin.

We do not recommend places to purchase. You can try local nurseries, or online at Amazon, Etsy, or Ebay.
You can grow them in zone 9 with some care. You must provide the environment that they require, perfectly, in order for them to survive where you are.
I am in Virginia and eager to learn where I can obtain a few Chinese Bayberry trees. Thanks so much in advance.
Unfortunately, we do not recommend specific places for purchase. I could suggest that you try an online nursery, or somewhere local, though.
What I can do is include an article for the growth and care of them, though:
Couldn't find live trees anywhere except seeds
Looks like you have to go to China to get one. My research did not show any online sellers in the US. I would hesitate to grow from seed. Apparently they are difficult to germinate and grow. You might ask at a local nursery if there is a specialty grower who would have them.
Compounding that, you would need a male and female tree to get fruit.
I would like to buy chineese Bayberry trees for planting in florida on residential property. Amy Grant published an article about the tree and fruit. Thank you; Brad Kelly
We do not recommend places for purchase. I would say that it would be best to check local nurseries, or nurseries online.
