i plant all of the ones you mentioned about 6 inches deep and they do great for us, but i always thought that was so they were below our freeze line ... frost line ... so they didn't freeze solid in the winter LOL but it's a big difference from pennsylvania to georgia i guess, so for you it might be more of a matter of what Kristie said and it's based on plant height and how much support they'll need when they're grown. i don't think there's a general rule for ALL bulbs, since there are some that are different. like our irises, barely in the ground at all, even if we plant them 6 inches deep they migrate to the top. i'd probably go with the 4 inches and they'll do just fine.
