    Do you mean these?

    Plant as bulbs in autumn but plant on their side to avoid water settling in the natural hollow in the bulb and causing it to rot.

    I'm having a guess at Friillaria imperialis :)
    It grows from a bulb, usually bought and planted in the autumn. Comes in red/orange or yellow versions and has a circle of drooping bell flowers, with the leaves in a tuft on top.
    That one?
