No need to go outside the U.S.

Lewisia seeds are available in the seed exchanges of various alpine 
garden societies, including the North American Rock Garden Society 
(NARGS).  You need to be a member to get the seed, but maybe you have 
a friend who is a member and wouldn't mind giving you some seed.

There are two nursery growers in Pacific Northwest who grow wonderful 
plants, and both have websites and offer mail order.

Rick Lupp on the slopes of Mt Rainier, near Seattle, has quite a 
number of lewisia plants. http://www.backyardgardener.com/mttahoma/

The next one is a Canadian company which has a U.S. address as well. 
Roger Barlow's Beaver Creek Greenhouses. 
http://www.rockgardenplants.com/  15 choices of Lewisia seeds and 
plants as well.
