These grow so fast from bulbs that you can almost watch them grow. They make very impressive cut flowers.

Gladiolus spp
Lots of options for color and form. Bulbs multiply. Fairly trouble free, and staggered plantings allow for waves of bloom over a long time.

Scilla siberica
Delightful cut flower for spring. The best way to use it is to pull the stalk up and out of the bulb instead of cutting it. You'll be surprised at how long the stem is!
