This bulb grows in my garden at the end of summer/early fall. The blooms last about a week; also make good cuttings for small bouquets. My bulbs have been in bloom for about one month, and still popping up with new blooms until about mid-November.

It was here when I moved into this house. At first, there were no flowers on any of the foliage. Then, after I dug up and replanted the bulbs in a relandscape project, they all bloomed profusely.
