Mystery bulb

Got any other ideas? I have a number of Z. drummondii (C. drummondii) 
for comparison, although I don't believe I have any Z. brazosensis (C. 
pedunculata). But, either description calls for a glaucous, twisted 
foliage. This foliage reminds me of Z. grandiflora foliage, about 1/4 to 
3/8" wide and about 8" long, just not as dark green. I will dig one up 
and take a picture of the bulb, which does not resemble Z. drummondii at 
all. I will try to post it to the WIKI and an image of Z. drummodii for 

These are of images taken last summer, but foliage is starting to poke 
out now.
