Hi gail, that's nice! it is flowering before growing leaves I see. In the wild, leaves are usually more developed at the blooming time.
If it produce seed, and if you don't use them, I think that it will interest someones... ;D

I have two very young bulbs, but snails and slug enjoyed them very much. I put ferric phosphate, they seem to redo foliage, happily!

thank you for the address, I'll look there...
