I've been busy fixing things on the wiki lately and only today read 
all the messages on this thread. In Coastal Northern California some 
of the invasive plants qualify for inclusion so for them wouldn't 
want to encourage anyone to plant them. Here are some bulbs I have 
observed in areas continuing to grow and thrive in areas where they 
are no longer tended:
Allium triquetrum, Amaryllis belladonna, Oxalis pes-caprae, Narcissus 
spp. (could be hybrids, I've not tried to figure out what they are, 
but you see them along Highway One), Kniphofia (also not sure if 
these are species or hybrids), Zantedeschia aethiopica, some kind of 
Bearded Iris, Watsonia, more than one species but definitely Watsonia 
meriana var bulbillifera, Chasmanthe, again I'm not sure which species

I've probably forgotten some.
