It takes 7 years to bloom, each year it grows another leaf so when  you get the 7th leaf you know it will bloom that year.  Beautiful flower

in open forests and forest edges. The fleshy leaves appear in winter, flowers
early spring, and is setting seed and retreating into dormancy now. When dormant
there is no trace of it. I was thinking of collecting some seed to donate to the
PBS SX if anyone may be interested in trying this plant. It requires a dry
summer rest and the fleshy crowns can be treated like bulbs, dug and divided in
late summer and easily transplanted.
