Mark asked."Not bulbs I know but I thought some of you guys might have an 
answer. I had a customer from Ohio in the garden centre I work in. She was 
thinking of exporting a small Monkey Puzzle, Araucaria araucana, to the US. 
Surely these must be available over there?"

Yes, they are widely available and are occasionally planted in residential 
gardens on the Pacific Coast. They don't seem to grow very fast here in 
Oregon (I'm not sure how fast they grow at home in the Andes) and don't 
drop the lower branches to make the picturesque "umbrella" seen in the wild.
