็Hi Orpheos,

www.ausgardener.com.au sell Crinum flaccidum in name Crinum - Darling Lily. Not yellow flower form.
Look at : http://www.ausgardener.com.au/plants/Crinum-%252d-Darling-Lily.html

Now not available. They can export.

In ebay,may you seen from, few seller in South Africa sell in name Crinum of Andamooka.

It will help you.

Hi Orpheos,
if you have patience I can send you seed of Calostemma purpureum (see reply #102: http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=6624.90) - I haven't had C. luteum flower yet.
cheers

Hi Orpheos,

Source in Europe of Calostemma purpureum = Paul Christian, Wrexham.

No other australian bulbs (but quite a lot of ground orchids)
