At first I thought it might be an aberrant C. persicum flower, but Randall 
Link's suggestion that it of a romulea made me take a second look. That long, 
approximately cylindrical foliage is the clue: I too will say that it's a 
romulea of some sort.

The color is extremely handsome, I must say. Watch for a seed capsule to form 
later on so you can grow more.
