Beautiful Fermi - flowers before the leaves appear?

Yes, it seems that way, though I've been told that Narcissus viridiflorus when it reaches flowering size only sends up flowers stems which are able to photosynthesize so leaves are unnecessary!
I think this one does send up leaves later in the year,
