I love the family and am an ex member of the American Gesneriad Society.
Indoor plants don't do well for me; because, I use wood heat.

I have found many vendors of Gesneriads but they sell mostly indoor plants.

When I moved from San Francisco to Oregon I couldn't find a local chapter.

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

You could check out Far Reaches Farm and Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden, the former does mail order and has listed quite a few hardy Gesneriads in the past.

You could try the Portland Nargs group. They still meet I believe. Maybe they have contacts that will help you.
