Kurt Vickery (listed under Sources on the PBS website) offers seed of 
some species of Gagea, a close relative of Tulipa. The seeds 
germinate readily but the seedlings need to be kept frost-free. Some 
species are frost-hardy when mature. The only one I have grown in the 
long term is G. fibrosa, which may appear on the Illahe Rare Bulbs 
list sometimes.

Most Gagea species have yellow flowers and are hard to tell apart, 
but a few have white flowers. All are small plants of turf and rocky slopes.
