This was blooming when I took the pictures yesterday. It's growing from a bulb, and the foliage reminds me of a tulip, but I've never seen anything like it before. The flower stems are around about 10 inches tall, and the individual flower is about an inch across. Thanks for any help!

Could be Allium Moly. Break and smell it.

If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
