In this article it mentions that a replace for the australian tree fern is the 'Ama'uma'u. Has anyone ever seen this sold anywhere?

"'Ama'uma'u is another Hawaiian tree fern that could be used. The fern is very pretty and has a striking new leaf or frond which is bright pink or orange when it emerges. The frond unfurls, keeps the protective bright color for a short time and then toughens up to green. We saw this in an attractive entry landscape planting at the Kamehameha Preschool in Waimea on the Big Island."
