Been off line, but will add.

	Someone suggested - or did I imagine- that the double TL was 
less enduring than typical form? True? Ellen's sure sound sturdy and 
long lived as road side survivors.

	Year ago I got T. lancifolium- fertile/diploid from Dan 
Hinckley. I can verify lots of seed, fewer bulbils and fertility- 
sometime seedlings are almost like sod; most die or they would take 
over. It does seed around a bit, but there are much worse weeds to 
worry about.

	Yellow TL - I can't say that I have ever seen one that 
actually looked like a Yellow form of the common TL. Just some other 
seedling/hybrid that some grower was trying to hype and pass off.  I 
don't doubt that one might exist, but so might a TL with variegated 
foliage and I haven't seen that yet either.

	I especially appreciated Dave K and Jim M's contributions on this topic

	Lilum superbum. Over the years I have had a few bulbs 
labelled L superbum (or as a friend calls them "Super- Bum"). I may 
have lost them, or lost track of them while also planting L. 
michiganense which is quite similar. This spring all my bulbs were 
clearly L michiganense. I don't know if L. m. overwhelmed L. s or the 
name superbum were simply mislabelled. Has this happened to anyone 

	More later.	Jim W.
