Zigadenus fremontii

Zigadenus fremontii

Bulbous species in the Lily family with fairly showy creamy white flowers it has a sinister reputation as a poisonous plant. We have not seen any carcasses of garden vermin around the base of the plants, although a few less deer and bunnies wouldn't break my heart.

Tulbaghia natalensis

Tulbaghia natalensis

18" tall with sweet scented violet blue flowers, from South Africa, probably safest in the alpine house. We have not yet tried them outside but with South African stuff you never know, some prove completely hardy others turn to mush.

Sternbergia lutea

Sternbergia lutea

Oh how I wish this thing was a little hardier! Looks overall like a crocus, but with large, glowing flowers a rich, brilliant shade of yellow that bloom in the fall, followed by the leaves which come up and stay over the winter before going dormant in the spring. One of the showiest of fall blooming bulbs, and spectacular in mass. Zone 7

Scilla tubergeniana (mistchenkiana)

Scilla tubergeniana (mistchenkiana)

Scilla tubergeniana (Syn Scilla mischtschenkoana) This is the coolest little bulb I've seen in a long time. And when I say little, I mean LITTLE. A wee rosette of dark green leaves barely an inch across, topped with a flower almost as large delicately flushed lavender and pink. In full bloom, less then two inches tall, it is the absolute final word in adorable. Even better, blooms incredibly early, along side your snowdrops, eranthis, and Cyclamen coum, when you are desperate for some early color. Reliably hardy here in zone 5 Michigan, offsets rapidly to form a nice clump but reportedly does not seed around, which is probably a good thing since some scillas can be a bit of weed in that respect. Zone 5, at least.

Scilla autumnalis see Prospero autumnale

Scilla autumnalis see Prospero autumnale

Prospero autumnale Used to be Scilla autumnale, but now is prospering in the garden under this fancy new name. Whatever you call it, great loose spikes of handsome blue flowers in late summer (July/August for us) followed by unobtrusive foliage. A perfect pick-me up for a tired late summer garden. Zone 5, at least Joseph

Rhodophiala bifida var. spathacea

Rhodophiala bifida var. spathacea

Very lovely hippeastrum-like bulbs. Brilliant orange-red flowers come up in late summer into fall, followed by the leaves which stay up through the winter then going dormant for the summer. Hardy to at least zone 7, maybe colder, and well worth growing in a sunny windowsill.
