But the color and shape of the bulb could be a match for Daubenya. Did the bulb have some thin papery bracts or skins around it when you dug it up? Mine have a lot of that. If it is a Daubenya, don't leave it out of the ground for too long; they do not like that. In my experience, they are relatively slow-growing and can take years to bloom. Good luck! The flowers are worth the wait. Mike San Jose, CA PS: The Daubenyas that I have grow fairly shallowly, with the bulb close to the surface but a lot of room below for roots.
