tulips which run wild

Bob and Dell,

	I’d welcome seed of weed tulips. Bring ‘em on!

	I’d love to send a few hundred bulbs of T. sylvestnis, but they are stoloniferous to the point of not making many bulbs, at least in my conditions. I have tried sending people bulbs in the past and it means digging deep and finding no bulbs at all. Nada. Each clump of foliage is traced down a skinny stolon to oblivion. Maybe digging a dozen or two  plants will result in a couple pea size bulblets.  And this is in fairly heavy clay to make the digging more interesting.

	Dutch growers must keep those confined in a sandy soil that can be sieved closely for the bulbs. Mine originally came from a friend in Kansas City who gave me a few. 

	I”d be glad to try seeds.		Best		Jim W.
