    Several scientific sources including some of the Kew's sites and the USDA list Sternbergia colchiciflora Waldst. & Kit. as an endangered species. This could be very difficult to obtain legally.

    Thank you, I would like to get it legaly.It grows few peces in slovakia, but I think there is some way botanists can render it from seed to botanical gardens.I love nature much.
    my main interest is to grow fruits, which can be eaten just from bush or tree in garden. today I just have got such plant of sweet hipophae ,I am very glad from it. Thank you for informing me! if you have still somethink to say, write rather on e-mail: nokal1@seznam.cz.Good Year 2010!Jan

    Now it sounds like you are, in fact asking about Shepherdia rather than Sternbergia. You used both genus names in your original post.
