Spring Ephemerals Bulbs for flooded field

Posted by edlincoln 6A (My Page) on

There is a field that floods every spring, but dries up in the summer. Can anyone think of any Spring Ephemeral bulbs that would grow happily when the area is flooded and become dormant before the area dries out in late May early June and is mowed? I prefer North American Natives that attract bees or butterflies.

Sounds like a suitable position for Camassia or Leucojum aestivum. Both of these are said to thrive in wet conditions, especially when activiely growing and flowering.
