 o
IDing bulbs, a tree, and other yard plants

Evening
We moved in september and due to some work that needed to be done through the basement shrubs needed to be removed. Now that spring is here, I see bulbs and other life popping up out of the ground. Some plant life was very much alive through the winter. Also, there's a tree that I would like help in IDing.
If at all possible, can you find people help to idenitfy all that you see in the pictures that I upload. In about two weeks, my husband and I will start laying down soil and mulch and I would like to get rid of anything that is not condusive to a beautiful garden. Thank you.

Cardamine hirsuta for the White flower.
Muscari spp. for purple flower?
Might be Tulip for Red tip.

The tilled up grass and blubs might be Leucojum spp.

dark purple grass

May have a Juncus effusus cv.

Here is a link that might be useful: Corkscrew Rush

Saltcedar, you are awesome. As I refresh this page, I go to google to look at its background. Your assistance was so helpful. Now, I'll have to figure out how to get rid of the weeds and be careful with the various bulbs that are growing while adding soil.

You have many bulbs growing in there.
Skipping the tree pic

crocus bulb in pic 1 (the white striped strap shaped leaves) can be white or purple or yellow flower - the other plant with the white flower is a weed (bittercress)

grape hyacinth in 2 and 3
tulip and daffodils in pic 4.

For the Cardamine hirsuta just pull it up. Try to do it asap or it will shoot seeds all over the place. It flowers and seeds all year round, even in winter in mild spells.

The bulb in pic one could be Ornithogallum umbellatum which also has a white stripe sometimes and has laxer, untidier foliage than crocus. Also much more weedy.

I think you have the standard spring mix there.

Here is crocus

Your tree may well be a red maple based on the flower color, though it may be one of the other Acers.
