Have a plant in a pot and for 6months can see nothing but soil...
Then suddenly in the summer white flowers spring individually from the soil and bloom...
Then flowers gone and nothing there briefy before autumn when leaves spring from the soil individually...
When the leaves are gone it is only soil again, easily mistaken for a vacant pot with soil in it...
What is the plant...?
Thankyou in advance...

Cyclamen.
I have them planted in the ground.

The leaves usually show up after the bulb slows or stops producing flowers.

Hard to tell from that image. At least for me. What do the leaves look like? I was thinking crocus at first.

After Stone said Cyclamen, I could see it but that is a weird photo. Confused
