Biarum davisii - this tiny little plant from Turkey and Crete is dormant throughout the summer and you don't even know it's there. Then, in autumn, it sticks its little head out of the earth and makes this bizarre flower (a spathe) that just sits on the soil and then it sends up little shoots that will be leaves!
