Great naturalizing plants which grow very well in shade or mixed sun. Bulbs are planted in fall and flowers in the spring after which folliage dies back.

This bulb grows and multiplies like weeds. They pop up everywhere. Maybe good in a natural setting but not good in beds with permanent planting such as roses and peonies.
