Polianthes tuberosa

I grew Polianthes tuberosa here in central Indiana for years.  The bulbs 
spent the summers outdoors and the winters bone dry, either bare rooted in 
the basement or sitting potted in their pots in the basement.  Repotting 
encouraged bloom, as I recall.  Once I lost my sense of smell (40 years as 
a bench chemist can do that to you), I lost some of my interest in 
Polianthes.  I tend to like big and gaudy....
