It's name says it all...

FDP slept for almost 6 months since I planted it. It is a tiny 14 cm bulb. Finally it decided to wake up last month and it's first flower was a double.

Oh how pretty I thought. But then I remembered that it was supposed to be a single flowered one. Further inspection as it's flowers fully opened revealed that it was 2 FUSED flowers!!!
