Need Help Identifying these Bulbs

genielady(8)January 28, 2010

It has been so nice down here in Bainbridge, GA this week, that I have started redoing my front flowerbed. I dug up some bulbs that I thought were Amarylis, but they are not. I remember now finding some of these when we first moved here in 2001, and just threw them away because all I ever saw was green limp foliage coming from these bulbs, never flowers. But they were stuck in under some bushes, so maybe they do flower, but just didn't because of lack of sunlight.

Can any of you help me figure out what this is? It has no smell, so I ruled out onions and garlic. Of course, I could be wrong. :-) It happens sometimes.

forgot to say...
you might post on the Southern Gardening Forum, too;

If they survived for a long time unattended, & even managed to make all those offsets, I bet they thrive in your area & lots of gardeners will recognize them.

Best luck!

Sylvia,

Thank you. I will try that. I haven't been working outside for a week or so. We actually had SNOW here on the Georgia-Florida line yesterday. Amazing! I thought I had moved far enough south that I was away from the possibility of snow.
