Various Narcissus grow very happily here in Auckland.  I plant mine in 
shady places.  They don't need sun here.  And they come up year after 
year, multiplying.  And this is zone 10.

Ixias and Freesias tend to become like weeds here.

Hippeastrums do fine here in the open garden, as long as it is afairly 
dry area.  Well drained.
