I wish I could enlarge it. My first thought was Spiranthes sp. or ladys tresses orchid.

Any ideas what this is?

I don't see why not, but the question is Why? It keeps well . I store it it in washed out milk bottles or fizzy pop bottles.

Cut and come again

Not sure of the tree. The shrub is Choisya ternata 

The bulb is a corm, the new one stacks on top of old ones. Its possibly a Crocosmia. lucifer in particular has big corms. How big is it , its possibly a crocus if it is dying down now, as opposed to shooting up.
