We found T. saxatilis (aka bakeri) in Crete a few years ago, and in the garden, it is spreading nicely, but has yet to size up enough to flower.

Dear Friends,

	This is the time of year I am reminded about the above topic, mostly du/e to T. sylvestris. I wonder if anyone else has experience - not just catalog hype - with stoloniferous tulips.

	I think these are all stoloniferous

	T. sylvestris
	T. whitttallii
	T. clusiana
	T. bakeri ( according to google)

	Does anyone have experience with any other species that spread out to form patches of bulbs?

			Thanks.		Jim W.
