I planted some bulbs last year I'd gotten on sale & now can't remember what it is I planted. It's August in Indiana & flowers that look like tulips coming up are in my garden. It has a tall stalk w/ magenta buds, shaped like teardrops, one on one stalk and three (2 on one side @ top & 1 on the other side @ top) on the other stock are showing thus far. Any guesses as to what I've planted?



(I know this feeling!) could your bulbs be fritillaria?

Colchicums maybe?

Without a photo it's just another guessing game. You could edit this question to add one, or try asking again with a photo uploaded to help

I'd like to see it too. It sounds almost like an Amaryllis of some kind, but few of that family are hardy in Indiana.
