Are they protected in the wild ? here we would go to prison for digging them up,not that we have thoes in any number but we have other ones,

I was told as a child that it was endangered and therefore protected....But now as an adult, I am finding that it is not endangered in Delaware, so probably not protected. But these are also available from growers so that wild specimens need not be touched!
