There is an interesting discussion on the mediterranean plants list 
about bulbs that that seem to push themselves out of the soil, 
occasioned by Drimia (Urginea) maritima:


Anyone have any theories about why some bulbs do this (some of the S.

because a plant can do something does not necessarily mean there is an 
adaptive reason to do it.
