Tulipa sprengeri

Dear friends,

	Tulipa sprengeri is just in bud and coloring up. This is our 
latest tulip  to bloom by far and long after every other tulip has 
faded and nearly or totally dormant. In its own way it is a treasure 
and I need many more. It is extremely slow to multiply by traditional 
division methods here (and I understand this is typical for this 
species). I have some seedlings coming along, but I still want more 
and to try it in other parts of the garden. Instant gratification (in 
bulb terms that means bloom in a couple of years)

	Does anyone have bulbs for sale, trade or can suggest a 
reasonable source for bulbs of typical or 'Trotter's Form" (which I 
do not grow at all) ?

	Appreciate any growing hints or even more praise for this 
unusual species.

		Best	and thanks		Jim W.
