Does anyone know the name of a bulb that only produces green foliage in the spring that resembles the daffodil leaves. That is all it appears to do as the folliage dies off but then in July or so, a shoot emerges that grows quite rapidly (at least 1' tall) and the flower then appears.

Your mystery bulb is likely the "Naked Lady" or "Surprise Lily", a variety of amaryllis, i believe. The pale pink flowers are nicely fragrant!
