Cardiocrinum cordatum

I sowed seed of Cardiocrinum cordatum in 1985 and had my first bloom in 1992, and it has been a dependable presence ever since, plants popping up wherever, in due time, sending up a flower stalk, and then, of course, dying.  However, two years ago a plant, presumably in an optimum situation, grew and grew, and when the next year I dug in that spot I found two large bulbs.  I moved them to a more appropriate place and, lo and behold, I now have two separate flower stalks pushing up, ready to burst into bloom.  What in the world will the future bring?

Have any others had this sort of experience?
