Dear Steve;
	I've heard the same things and after years of planting NARGS 
seed of T. sprengeri I have perhaps 3 or 4 seedlings struggling 
along. I do have a slightly "weedy" Tulip, however,  and I'll send 
you bulbs some come dormancy- Tulipa sylvestris. This is a highly 
stoloniferous shade loving yellow flowering tulip. It tends to make a 
lot of foliage that doesn't bloom, but enough flowers to make it 

	I suspect there are not a lot of shade loving stoloniferous 
tulips around.

	And I'll take a handful or two of those unwanted T. sprengeri 
bulbs too.
