Any idea what this is? I only have this picture, haven't seen it in person. He said he thought it was a bulb, and was told that it flowers. But as of now, it looks like this.

RE: Plant ID

Not enough info to say for sure, but it looks like a member of the amaryllis family, and that's the remains of a flower scape. Since there are no leaves in evidence right now, an educated guess would be Lycoris squamigera, which blooms in summer, but produces its leaves in the early spring.

RE: Plant ID

after looking that up, certainly a possibility - thanks!
