Beautiful colours to the flowers...... do they join on one stem inside the bulb or are these each separate blooms?

Maggi ,

they have startet before some days and I was a bit dissapointet because they were not red -only ligth pink ....but with every day they get more dark color and now they are really red .
The more light flowers are some days younger - in total thats 8 stems .
