Chances are if certain plant varieties aren't available in the US, there's a good reason for it. They're pretty strict here. We've had problems in the past with people bringing things into the country that they thought were harmless, but which ended up causing all sorts of problems: zebra mussels, kudzu, and knotweed, to name a few.

My suggestion would be to simply check first with the US Department of Agriculture. According to their website, you can contact them to see what is or isn't prohibited.
Plants and Plants Products:
Telephone Number: 301-851-2046 or
Toll free: 1-877-770-5990
Email: Permits@aphis.usda.gov
I'd just send them an email describing what you're planning to send, and make sure it's alright first.
