When I worked in Quincy, Florida I found a homesite that was over 100 years
old- the rectangle of the original house footprint was formed by Lycoris
radiata and  Zephyranthes candida.  I've also seen clumps of Narcissus
jonquilla blooming in Quincy where no one had planted them in at least 50
years.  Gladiolus dalenii are present in many old homesites of S. Georgia
and N. Florida, plus of course crinums and Rhodophiala bifida.  My other
favorite survivor is Leucojum vernum.
