Is it difficult to find the correct vertical wood siding?

I'm looking to replace some vertical wood siding around a balcony. It is suffering in places from wood rot.

How hard will it be to find a good match for this siding? A recent visit to home depo isn't reassuring, they have very few kinds. I'm visiting a lumber yard next.

Probably easy to find at a local lumberyard. They either have the product or have the knowledge about where to find it. In general, big box stores are useless for things like that.

If you were to post a photo of the siding it may be helpful
