Excellent Chinese species which has grown and multiplied in our garden for 15 years.  Broad trifoliate leaves with flowers sporting a swollen yellow spadix held below the foliage. Once pollinated, the stem bearing the fruiting head elongates until the red fruit is held well above the leaves.  In Sichuan, we saw this flowering amidst carpets of Corydalis flexuosa in bloom - no wonder their spadices were dilated!  Nice 1" or so seed-grown bulbs that are not flowering size but will get you started.  This will also increase by offsets.
