Had a pkt of Zigadens. From RHS surplus seed scheme? Lso found I had a pkt of Brodiaceae lutea, now called Triteleia ixioides

On plant Zigadens




Not so sure that it is either of these. You really need to go on a specialist site for ID. Try the Scottish Rock Garden site. the bulb people on there are incredibly knowledgeable.

Thanks Owdyboggy, in the book 'Bulbs' Phillips and Rix looks like Zigadenus micranthus. On Google all the photo show micranthus as creamy coloured. I have not dug down to see if it has a bulb. Maybe I could scrape away the soil and check!
