A Surprise Lurking Beneath the Ivy

When I was out and about in the yard with my daughter on Monday I made a small discovery. It was lurking beneath the overgrown ivy topiary in a planter we have had for several years. From time to time we have planted different things in the planter. Once we had ornamental grasses and another time we had bulbs. I think we even grew lettuce in it once! What I found yesterday hearkens back to the day when we had bulbs planted in it. If you look beneath the ivy in the picture above you can see on the right one kind of bulb plant and on the left another. What I'm not sure of is what we planted! I suspect crocuses (which are corms not bulbs) on the right and a daffodil on the left but I can't be sure. It's possible the daffodil could be a tulip.

Here are some close-up shots of the plants in question. The possible crocuses look to be about 4 or more plants ready to be divided. We'll see for sure if and when they bloom. It's possible they won't bloom since their exposure to light was extremely limited before I clipped the ivy.

Here you can see the green growth from the other bulb plant. Is it a tulip or a daffodil?

What do you think crocuses and a daffodil or tulip and crocuses?
