there are stricct import laws to prevent the spread of diseases etc. But the companies will know for definite if they are allowed to send them.

It may be worth sending an email to Clover Hill Plants
http://www.nurseriesonline.com.au/CloverHill/Clover_Hill_Plants.html
and asking if they sell seeds. Clover Hill are the main growers and sellers of Epimedium in Australia.

The clover Hill web site indicates that they import epimediums from China, so they will not be on a restricted list.
