It's a deal. And I'll dig some of the ones that are indeed growing in the
woods here, and maybe we'll get some genetic diversity from the lot. And
lest I forget, the fragrance is great.

Dear Jim, Dell et al;
	Exactly my situation. These shade bulbs are quite small- 
finger nail size, but transferred to a sunny site and they produce 
larger blooming plants. I haven't dug one of these sun-growing bulbs, 
but assume they get bigger too.

	Jim how about a deal- Let's both send some bulbs to Dell for 
the bulb exchange. I do have dozens - hundreds? Just a bit of a pain 
to dig.

	......and I'd love to let loose T. whittallii and clusiana 
chrysantha here too. Go weeds!
