Sinningia defoliata

S. defoliata blooms relatively independently of the presence or absence of leaves.  Sometimes flowers are produced directly from the tuber on a leafless plant.  Other times, the leaves (which also grow directly from the tuber) may be present during blooming.  Another photo can be seen here.
