Plants from the southern hemisphere


Dan Hinckley  made at least one collecting trip to CHile in 1998 with
Carrabine and Macuiba and I'm certain that I've seen references in his
catalogue to things for sale from there. ( Heronswood Nursery 
http://www.heronswood.com/  ) 
I see in that catalogue that he also has collection notes from a trip
made by Eric Hammond in 2000.

Furthermore, there are many plants in common cultivation here that began
life in S. Africa.  Kniphofia  'Red Hot Poker' comes to mind.

I've never ordered plants from any part of the Southern Hemisphere but
I've ordered many daffodil bulbs from Australia and New Zealand and
turned them around successfully.  It does require a little extra effort
but it can certainly be done.

Subject: [CHAT] Plants from the southern hemisphere
     In his book about the Arnold Arboretum written in 1925, E.H. Wilson
observed, "No plants from the southern Hemisphere, not even from the high
Andes, southern Chile, or the higher mountains of New Zealand, have
hardy in the Arboretum."  Has anyone on the list ever seen anything
written on
this subject, or know of any exceptions?
