A friend gave me a bulb that she called the Naked lady and every year the leaves die back and a beatiful pink lily blooms on my birthday reminding me of my friend.

Gladiolus spp
I remember my Grandmothers and had to have them in my garden. They return every years and make a nice background for the roses. I have many colors and they bloom later in the summer so always something different blooming in the garden.

We were driving though Georgetown NC on a rainy spring day and saw the sign for Roycroft Daylily nursery. I had no idea they came in any color than yellow. Diploids, Tetraploids ( the difference is the number of chromosomes (really) . Some are even re-bloomers. They look great with my roses.

Iris spp
I brought my first one home from a trip to Arkansas and planted it the garden and forgot about it. The next year it multiplied and bloomed. Some bloom only once in a season and some bloom spring and fall. I have added a few more colors and they never disappoint me.

Iris douglasiana escalona

Tulipa spp - Tulips
You know what they are but consider this - I plant them in plastic pots and then after I prune the roses, I plant the pots. When they bloom the roses are bare and they add color to the garden. When they want to die back, I remove the pots and put them away to store the sugar into the bulbs and rest for next year.

Zantadeschia spp
My husband loves these and they also bring life to my dormant winter garden. When it gets to hot they don't look good so I cut them back. They make great cut flowers and a stunning pictures. They come in many sizes and colors other than the normal white one. The also spread easily so don't over plant.
