I don't know about Rare exactly but you have to search for it. I first saw it in Gerry C-W's backyard on GA and when I asked around I found an online friend had it. She started mine off for me.
When it gets bigger I'll do the same for anyone who's interested. It's a tame little thing, nothing like the common ones.

What a great idea BL that's kind of you the members will appreciate that..
I too love Plumbago we have only four now of the blue they are just finishing another flush so Tony will be out with the electric hedge clippers to cut them down to a much smaller globe shape we dont have any problems taming the blue though.

Very pretty, and I would think quite unusual, I certainly haven't seen nor heard of it before.

I haven't seen the pink before though read about it somewhere. It's very pretty, I certainly hope it isn't as bad as the blue... I love the blue one but we have had so much trouble with one that I am hesitant about getting any others. After two years I am still spraying suckers on a blue one that spread out of control and smothered other plants... sprayed some more yesterday. We had to cut all the other plants back to ground level to get the plumbago out.

That is very unusual. I know of the blue and white but have never heard of any other colour.
I want it!
