I think this first one is suppose to be Four o"Clocks but not sure.

I planted these bulbs this spring and they have not bloomed. I am thinking they might be Tigridia Mix. But I did over winter some bulbs that I put into pots so these could be them also. Any ideas?

The first one is a Four O'Clock. The bulbs are a little harder without flowers.

Yes, the first one is Four O'clocks:
Mirabilis
Four o'Clocks (Mirabilis jalapa)

The foliage on the others reminds me of Agapanthus Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus africanus) and Amaryllis but doesn't quite look right for Mexican Shell Flower (Tigridia pavonia)

Hopefully others will recognize those leaves and be able to help out ... but of course you will know for sure once you get blooms.

The leaves do remind me of agapanthus, but I'm not sure - were these definitely bulbs, or rhizomes? Agapanthus (at least the ones I have) tend to have a large root mass around a rhizome.

Could the second one be Amaryllis?

You know, it could be, but I don't recall buying it, and I do not have the packaging that it would have come in. I am getting up there in age so my mind may be playing tricks on me. I really wish it would have bloomed this year. Is it usual that it may not have bloomed the first year planted?

Or (just to confuse things) Kaffir Lily - Clivia Miniata?
