Thank you Boyce and Jane for getting back to me. I'm not sure how they would do in the N.E. (Boston) but I'm willing to give them a try.

Warm Regards,

Hi Fred:

We saw thousands of Gagea in flower when we were in the Greater Caucasus Mountains several years back.  Our good friend, Dr. Tatyana Shulkina (currently at Missouri Botanical Garden) strongly suggested we not bring any back with us.  Apparently when she was curator of the living collections at the Komarov in St. Petersburg they became very weedy.  Not sure how close your climate is to those regions but thought I would pass the information along.

Many thanks,

Boyce Tankersley
