Would anyone happen to live in its distribution range and have access to seeds from this subspecies?

Here's a link to the map: http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=6284&flora_id=1

I live just north of the range in Milwaukee, haven’t seen any wild hops. If I run across some, ill gladly send you seeds. I wonder if Northern Promise hops have some pubensence in their DNA?
