Freaky Glad

I have a clump of G. dalenii that has just freaked out on me. It has two "stems" coming out of the ground about 4" with a "glob" on the end that looks like it should develope into a bulb. The best description I can give is that it looks like an allium flower head (about 1/2 to 1 inch across) that has not opened yet. It arched up out of the soil, 1/8 of an inch away from the glad growth and then back down again. I will try ot get a photo in the next day or so to post onto the Bulb Images group. I can also email it to anyone who is not on that list when I take it. 

Anyone have thoughts? Is dalenii rhizomatous and this one just went up instead of down and over? The "stems" are round and seem to be somewhat firm (not hollow).
