Yes, I think it is Lindelofia stylosa; I'd be happy if I received seed of this one.  Here are a couple links I found showing the plant in flower:

Mark, if you do not get L. stylosa seed I can send you half of mine, no problem.

Yes fun, and sorrows. I am not sure that I have time to do my usual work ;D  And many seedlings will die - from slug attack, lack of water or every disaster you can think of!

Wow, can't wait to see the results of growing that most interesting list of species! 
I was just looking at Lindelofia stylosa and I think it may the one pictured in the upper right of the photo montage in Mark's first posting in this thread?

Lori, I was excited about these seeds as well! I'm hoping that I can give a positive report on their progress in the future!

Some lovely seed there Saori - I grew Primula reidii years ago from Jack Drake seed and it is one of the most exquisite plants I have ever grown. Chris has given us talks on his seed collecting trips; always very impressive.

I might ask you for some tips on growing Primula reidii, since it would be my first time...

Did you see the pictures of Lilium polyphyllum, Aconitum heterophyllum and Gentiana algida var. nubigena on his CD? They are gorgeous!

I've received the updated January 2012 Seedlists, from Chris Chadwell- 3 separate lists- some nice stuff in there!

Saori - I am not sure I can give great tips on growing Primula reidii! A good moist but open textured compost, and most important cool, moist atmosphere (this is what we lack in the summer). By coincidence Lesley Cox on the SRGC forum mentioned that she grew 100 or more plants in a shade house - their scent is glorious - so she could give much better advice than I!

Timothy, thanks for your tip about P. reidii! I've been wanting to grow this one for a while so I'm excited to see how it goes. We have relatively cool summers, so hopefully the plant will do well here and I will be able to see the flowers. Since you mentioned that Lesley has been growing many of this variety, I will follow up with her about any tips or ideas she might have. Thanks again!

The share comes with a CD with lots of information on Chris Chadwell's travels and plant collection, including three Powerpoint presentations filled with terrific (and dramatic) scenery photos and plant photos, many items look very desirable.  Since the photos are taken at seed collecting time, many plants have gone over, one can only imagine how they must look when in full flower.  Must get busy sowing!

It looks like Arenaria festucoides has just germinated recently! :D I just found it today and I think this is a great start! I hope that it continues to grow for me!
