Regarding the Tulips which grow in Zone 9/10 and breeding, I have never noticed any seedpods on any of my species tulips to date, so I suspect they are sterile or triploids. I have the various T. clusiana types (which somehow must be fertile - else how did the other hybrids arise ?) T. wilsonii (perhaps ?, it's short and red and seems to be sticking around) T. bakeri (pink with the yellow throat) Otherwise I would love to grow them from seed...
