    I've never seen one in real life, but it does look like other photos I've seen. Good job blooming it.

    I haven't bought any of these bulbo's yet...are they easy to grow?? I saw a very unusual one at a nursery last week and almost brought it home. Yours is very pretty...such tiny little flowers.
