I would lie to ask if you now of any bulds that are set in the ground and forget about it. I will of course mulch w/ leaves every winter. I live in Otego NY zone 5 and am trying to get my garden in order. I am mainly a vegetable person but the yard needs work. Also these bulbs must like shady, moist conditions. Thankx in advance!

Although not all are technically bulbs, the following will grow in moist, shady areas and come back year after year: Buttercups, Ranunculus, Lilium canadense, Marsh Marigold, False Spirea, Sweet Flag, Gladiolus, iris, and hostas. Best wishes with your garden!
