What bulb flowers grow well in north central texas during spring?

Daffodils do beautifully, as do hyacinths and muscari or "grape hyacinths." Tulips grow well if you can chill them during the winter, just in case it doesn't stay cold enough for long enough. Crocuses do pretty well; they will bloom REALLY early; same for paperwhites.

I lived in Denton for about 16 years, and had tons of daffodils in my yard; my neighbors had tulips and had to work at them a bit, but it was worth it. If you're after summer flowers, irises are wonderful for that area.
