I had a box of unmarked bulbs, and this is what bloomed. I'm in zone 7b, Piedmont N.C. Thanks for any suggestions.

Welcome! to NGA

Its a Mexican Shellflower (Tigridia pavonia). I'm not sure it will survive in your zone.

Here's the database entry if you'd like a bit more information about it. That is a lovely flower.
