it sort of looks like a leaf that's forming, really - nothing too terribly distinctive...

does it come out at the end of the rhizome? or would i see it at the base of an already existing leaf. like in the middle of the rhizome.

it grows out of the rhizome by itself, much like a leaf. The color is much more dull though...the "petal" is a modified leaf structure (I'm assuming)....
