Here is a picture of this plant in the pot. I can not remember what it is. I posted this before but now I have a picture of the bulbs to go with it. It did not bloom this year and not sure if it did last year. Does anyone have any idea what it could be? Next year I want to plant it directly into the ground and see if it will bloom for me. I have also considered burying a pot and then plant the bulbs in the pot. Let me know your thoughts.

Here are the bulbs from the above pot. Do they look familiar to anyone?

They could be several things. If they are supposed to be hardy where you are, that eliminates a few of them.

I would do several diff things with them, since you have an abundance. Hopefully one of the treatments would result in blooms. That would increase the speed of your investigation by up to a few years.

Having been confined in a pot might be causing the bulbs to be more flat than a same clump in the ground.

If hardy, keep this in mind:
