Here in Rogue River we have Dichelostemma capitatum, C. congestum, Brodiaea elegans, Triteleia hendersonii, Triteleia hyacintha, other Triteleia (not sure of the species, short and yellow flowered), Calochortus tolmei, Erythronium hendersonii, Iris chrysophylla, and a possibly another that I've forgotten growing wild in the field behind our house.

Fritillaria and other Erythroniums grow in the region, though not right here.

The harsh climate necessitates storage organs I guess. There's even a grass/sedge with true bulbs. Peculiar.
