I had luck with Trees of Antiquity, but I understand your point. They won't need to get acclimated to the weather in a different state. California is much different than Michigan, but mine are doing well.

So many here in W Washington. No brown rot. Totally drought tolerant (We get <1" in July and August). Several strains. mostly true from seed. naturally semidwarf. Just about walk away from pruning. Well-drained, sunny, even shadey spot is ok. We're dry in the summer, in PA my family had a little old tree and it did get some brown rot with the rains, some cracking too. Makes THE BEST PRUNES. The "Prune Plum"!
