Bruce's point is a good one. On the other side, I have always thought that if people in Australia would take the trouble to collect seed of SOUTH AFRICAN bulbs that grow feral over there, the BX would fill many extra orders. This we know from Oz people showing images of Sparaxis, Gladiolus, Ixias, Watsonias and countless others growng "wild" in their whereabouts. The ideal climate, scant precipitation, acid drained soils and lots of sunshine make a lot of Australia a monumental natural nursery for such bulbs.
