I've seen Philesia magellanica in the wild, and I think its climate 
is very similar to that of the coastal part of northern California 
and southern Oregon. It grows in the shade. I expect to see it within 
the next ten days as I leave tomorrow for south central Chile and 
Argentina. Bring on the Rhodophiala and Oxalis!
