Marvel of Peru bulbs

They're perennials but not bulbs, they have a tuberous root which can be stored over winter like dahlias. They come through mild winters in the garden but are so slow to start it's not worth bothering with. They're so quick and easy from seed, I save seed and start afresh. But I haven't grown them lately, too much not terribly attractive leaf and not enough flower. Though they do smell nice

Might be tree lupins, Lupinus arboreus. I think they need to be outside in the light.
