Jack-in-the-pulpit ( Arisaema triphyllum ), although it is a corm rather than a bulb. Does well in shade.

Trout lily, Erythronium americanum. Don't know how well it would spread in a garden, but it the woods it spreads in large patches.

Sun or shade?

Two spots...one partly shaded (but mostly sun) underneath dying bushes, the other shade under a tree. Both mulched.

Which of these are Spring bulbs i'd plant now, and which ones should I wait until Fall to buy? Where would I buy them?
