Virginia Bluebells, any to spare?

Hi Everyone!

How are Virginia Bluebells grown? Do the bulbs look like tulip bulbs? And......... does anyone have any to spare? Please let me know if you do.

Virginia bluebells - Mertensia virginica do not have a bulb as far as I know, just regular roots.

They go dormant after setting seed and unless someone knows exactly where to dig they would be difficult to find. they have a tapering carroot-like root.
