Chiltern's catalogue this year has a number of Chilean seeds. Lots of 
Alstroemeria species as usual, plus Placea ornata, Rhodophiala 
bagnoldi and chilense. Annuals like Alonsoa incisifolia, Schizanthus 
porrigens and tricolor.  Lots more, including shrubs and vines.

Their Leontochir seeds are 6 for 4.35 pounds.  PlantWorld offered 8 
seeds for 2.85 pounds.  I didn't notice it for sale anywhere else.

It seems obvious that someone in Chile besides Flores and Watson is 
collecting seeds.
