Dear Adam and all,
	The plants in the shade have formed a sod, square yards of 
it, but very few flowers. In the sun it is quite the opposite with 
most bulbs blooming larger and on taller stems. Really quite lovely 

	I don't recall seed, but I'll pay attention this summer and 
collect any I find.

	Does anyone grow T sylvestris ssp australis ?  This has a 
restricted distribution in around parts of the Mediterranean. The 
flowers are bright yellow, but backed by red/pink somewhat in the 
style of clusiana. The web pix look excellent - see
http://jlcheype.free.fr/images/Fleurs/…	 and 

	I'd love to get a few bulbs if anyone has this form or knows 
a dealer. It is apparently a rare item.

	Appreciate any suggestions.		Thanks		Jim W.
