In theory, the one immutable difference between bulbs and rhizomes 
is that bulbs can bloom more than once. However, Mesmerizer can 
throw up unbranched 4-bloom secondary stalks a month before the 
main stalks (and many rhizomes in a clump can do so). Perhaps 
other multistalk patterns are possible also.
