I'm glad I put a marker in the soil where I planted this bulb because it did not do anything the first year and then several days ago I noticed the stalk growing out of the ground and it is now in full bloom.

They didn't bloom the first year I had them, but really surprised me last fall when they came up. I had forgotten I planted them! This year they've come back even better, with taller stalks and bigger flowers. So far, these have bloomed in early October for me each time. These were recovered from an abandoned homesite by a friend.
