Kathy,

I have a small packet of A lutea from the NARGS exchange. It only has 14 seeds.
I am willing to give you 5 of them.  I will NOT charge you because many members of PBS and NARGS have been very generous with me. From reading the forum, I get the sense that the same spirit of generosity pervades here. I have only been here a month myself.
In any case I only ask you to cover postage.
Our Post Office no longer sends first class mail by airmail  So, First Class international mail will cost US$1.35 but might take months to arrive. International Priority Mail is a flat rate of $14 but you should have it within 3 weeks.

Hi Kathy,

I'm unclear whether A. lutea is different from A. aurea 'Lutea', but can offer seed of the usual orange-bronze form of A. aurea next summer (August) if that's of any interest.

Ashley,

They are different species; but there is a close resemblance.

Thanks Marc.  I suspected as much, based on separate entries in the IPNI database (not infallible of course), so presumably aurea 'Lutea' is distinct.

You're welcome Kathy.  Kindly send me a PM with your postal address (& maybe a reminder in July/August ::)).
