Another surprise bulb - the spiky upright foliage is easy to overlook, until suddenly there's those intricate blooms. We've had some persist in our garden for quite a number of years, and added some more last fall because we're so enamored of them. Ours have subtle color variations, but the basic scheme is the same for all.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
