Dear Jane - Interesting parallel with Tulipa sylvestris here.

	In shade and 'decent' (not great) soil it forms a mat of single leaves and spreads like crazy. Never blooms.  Hundreds of small single grassy leaves.

	In hot sun it get 4-5 x larger, multiple leaves and has very nice bright yellow flowers. Spreads a bit, but under control.

	Sounds very similar to your situation. 	Want to trade weedy tulips?		Best		Jim W.
