From the Alpine garden plant society "
The genus Hypsela comprises four species of creeping perennial plants from Australasia and South America, Their botanical status seems to change on a fairly regular basis and may appear variously as species in their own right, with many synonms attached or conversly as a synonm in another genera. Current thinking places them in Campanulaceae: Lobelioideae (IPNI), closely allied to Pratia and Lobelia.

Hypsela reniformis can be found from Ecuador to Tierra del Fuego, in moist, usually open places (at least in the south of its range) and was one of the species recorded and collected on Darwins 'voyage of the Beagle' in the 1830's."

One of these plants you may be searching under the wrong name and more than likley misnamed in nurseries if you do find it, try the plant finder under Pratia or Lobelia
