 When I was not but a few miles from where you are I failed with every Eucomis I ever planted out. The last one I tried was E. autumnalis and planted it about 8 inches down. It died too when temps hit -10f. 

 Here in eastern Tennessee montana, bicolor, autumnalis, comosa, and humilis are all hardy. I tried vandermewii but it got attacked by something over its first summer out. Sparkling Burgundy is fully hardy for me as well.

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?
