Undependable bulbs - Fritillaria imperialis

I have to admit that I have a clump that has defied all rationality.  It 
has grown in a damp spot on the west side of a garage under a medlar 
tree.  So it  gets very little direct sun.  There are large beech trees 
overhead and I leave all the beech leaves in place as well.

I planted the bulbs first then forgetting where the bulbs were planted 
the medlar.  They have flowered reliably for twelve years and have 
increased nicely.

Can't tell you all why but they come back as reliable as April 15  ( tax 
due day here in the US).
