This plant is old and stopped flowering long ago, but every year gets giant leaves.

I see that a lot, one big lonely leaf each year. I wonder if digging the bulb and storing dry during summer would revive it to bloom again? I have some 2nd year Queen of the Night that are clusters of leaves like that, think I'll try digging and see what happens.
