Hi Jerry,
Eucomis montana has been doing well for me for several years; one has flowers of a particularly nice purplish color.  That one is up against the south side of the house sheltered from winter wet; its seed sister (rather plainer) is unprotected.  They've been through -5o or so.

Subject: [pbs] Eucomis

Has anyone had experience with Eucomis planted in-ground in zone 5?   Not 
just for the summer, but over-winter.  Any suggestions on  experimenting with 
over-wintering Eucomis in zone 5?  And would  they be considered deer 
resistant or rabbit resistant?

are just starting to bloom, and the crocus are just  finishing
