Fall Bulbs

I've just ordered some tulip bulbs to plant in the Fall.
I'm hoping they'll keep these few randoms company around the front rock wall next Spring. 
I went for perennial bulbs, which they say will provide five years of bloom, with bud counts increasing over the first three years.  I would really love to have some dramatic dark purple somewhere, but I don't think it belongs here.  How incredible are these?

I'm also working on ripping out a bed of orange daylilies (I'll keep a couple) and planting a variety of things in their place.  I'll share more once I finish.  Are you doing any Fall planting?

EEK! Please reconsider pulling out the day lilies! I removed most of my heliconia (orange, like your day lilies) last year and miss them. The remaining plants will spread in a few years, I'm hoping.
