|Well almost all clump forming perennials are easy to propagate (either in autumn or spring) but just chopping them into pieces with roots really. Think of grasses, hosta, geranium, ferns, echinacea, helenium, astrantium, iris, primula.....
Can't ship halfway around the world though so sorry

|Better check the patent laws before you get too far. A lot of plants can't be propagated for profit.

What experience do you have propagating plants? How much and what kind of space do you have for the plants? Sun/shade/greenhouse/etc.? Are there any water restrictions where you will be growing the plants?

Sounds like a fun idea.
Are you in Sun City Arizona? El Paso Texas?
Either way I think of desert conditions, so the water question is important.
Will plants be outside?
Do you have shade cloth or some kind of sun protection?
Are you going to grow perennials for landscaping or more for containers (I could picture a college student marketing containers at a farmers market).
You might take a look at the High Country Gardens website for ideas.
My climate is the opposite of yours, but I could send you some Cotula 'Tiffendell Gold'. I got it from HCG, he is the one who found it in South Africa at a ski area. I just looked at the website and it does not say it is patented, so the patent must have expired.
