This is a very worthwhile source of genetic material for hybridisers, 
and is similar to what Kathy is suggesting. A much better bet than seed. 
I guess it is just a matter of getting to know people, and finding out 
how to obtain such plants.

I just hope 'Gene Pool' still means what I think it means. I've just 
come to grips with the fact that 'Gene Hunt' is not something you do 
with a microscope! :-)
