I don't live in Zone 5 (more like Zone 7), but I grow a lot of 
Eucomis, and I think the key to keeping them alive in extra-cold 
winters is to plant the bulbs deeply and put a lot of organic mulch 
over the top. When I moved to my new place, I put all the Eucomis 
species and selections in one bed that will be sure to get some water 
in summer, and added some heuchera hybrids with marbled red leaves to 
complement the purple-leaved Eucomis.
