Dear All,

Around Denton, TX where I lived for six years, the outlines of old homesteads are delineated with persisisting Muscari neglectum, Rhodophiala bifida, Lycoris radiata, Narcissus jonquilla, and a few other types of Narcissus. There were also clumps of Cooperia pedunculata at these sites, which were farther north than that species normally grows I think.  Many of these places have been lost since the 1990s as undeveloped gaps in the urban landscape are filled in.

Subject: [pbs] old homestead bulbs

My question is this: along with daffodils and Hyacinthoides, what  
other winter-spring flowering bulbs are likely to persist and thrive,  
decades after planting? Which crocus, tulips, etc, are truly  
survivors that outlast their gardens?
