Dear PBS ers,

	As fond as I am of smaller species tulips and Chinese natives, I can’t really figure out why I have never grown Amana (was Tulipa) edulis or any of the other species in the genus. The PBS wiki just shows a few pix from John Lonsdale amazing collections.  I am wondering if anyone else in the group grows it and how it does especially in the ground in northern gardens.
	I have heard it is stoloniferous and can be some what ‘weedy’ in colonizing some ground. Wonder if that is true in the north or just in mild climates. 

	Anyone grow any species other than edulis?  Any suggestions on availability?

	Thanks for the comments. 			Jim W.
