Found 3 different bulbs at 3 different locations in my town. 1st type I found along side a creek they r the type with roots growing from top and bottom of bulb. They r larger than the others and browner in color. The second kind i found in the woods beside a old barn. The bulbs have little ridges at top of bulb. They have purplish color on foliage right above bulb.. 3rd type of bulb I found by an old house. They have multiple babies growing on them. On all bulbs the foliage is different shades of color and a little different size but the shape of foliage is the same. Thank you if u tool the time to read this. I love gardening flowers. They r gorgeous. I enjoy the flower and foliage. i love watching the roots grow, roots r awesome. Gardening is my love. I put up several pictures in a few pics I put a 3 types so u can compare. Thankyou

Hi Courtney,

Welcome to the forum! I'm afraid your photos haven't shown up; are you able to try again?

Please try posting pictures again. One at a time, perhaps?

I'm not sure what happened to the pics the first time but I did finally get my pictures up. Thank you both
