	I may be totally oblivious, but not one of my tulips every produces viable seed and spreads that way. My climate is very severe in summer and winter.  I have tried untold hundreds of seed of T. sprengeri without a single sprout showing up in a vafriety of seed trials.

	None of my stoloniferous tulips sets seeds, none of my non-stoloniferous tulips set seed.  Not tarda, not clusiana (or whatever I have), not nuttin’. 		More weeds!!		Jim
