Mine start later of course.  They pick up where the Chionodoxa leave off.

I like 'em all.  and they bloom for a long time for spring bulbs, from late
February until the end of April here. Sometimes I still have a few blooming
on Mother's Day.

I've grown the species, Ipheion uniflorum, Spring Starflower, for over 10
years.  Very reliable.  I also put in some of the cultivar, I. u. 'Wisely
Blue' and the hybrid cultivar I. 'Rolf Fiedler' a few years ago.  They're
more richly hued and both have the RHS Award of Garden Merit.  Still, I
think I like the species best.

Iphieons?   I love those.  Try star flower, I think that's one of their

common names.  They do wonderfully here.

Maybe not Ipheon, I was looking at common names too and that was one I
wasn't positive about.

Ipheon grew for you in zone 6? I didn't know it was that hardy.


I love Iris 'Immortality'. It's one of my favorites. It doesn't
usually
re-bloom for me, though. I think it gets shaded out by other plants.

narcissus, mini daffodils, chinodoxa, convallaria, crocus, galanthus,
ipheon, iris, lilium, muscari, gladiolus, scilla, colchicum that

Do y'all plant spring bulbs? If so, what kind and when? What
perennials

bloom
in the fall for you?
