Talk Gardening

My mysterious visitor Expand / Collapse
Co Cork
Posted 10/05/2014 Hi all, hopefully someone will be able to identify this plant for me! I have so far been unable to find it in any books. I have uploaded a picture of it to my pictures.
It appeared last year, it seems to grow from a bulb, it grows very rapidly and dies right back, it has seven leaves arranged in a star shape. It grows to no more than about 0.5m.

Any help in identifying this interloper would be appreciated!

Phil, Cork.

PS a link to the picture (not sure if links will work here!):
