A surprise , i have some false Solomon seal
Never planted any , don't think I have had seed , Shrug! They just showed up in the perennial bed .
Thumb of 2016-05-09/gardengus/900ea6 Thumb of 2016-05-09/gardengus/36ea54

There seem to be about a dozen in bloom now
I think they are a woodland wild flower and they are in full sun ? I am in the process of redoing this part of the bed so they will need to be moved.
When and where?

Any suggestions would be most helpful

I agree with the nice surprise Smiling

The plants have just stopped blooming . I did dig one to see what I was dealing with , they seem to have a root that will run , so I am seriously considering where to move them before I do so . I read in the above link ''spreads by creeping rhizomes to form colonies''
I have to also move some ferns so they will most likely end up in the same area.

Looks like Starry False Solomon's Seal (Maianthemum stellatum) . They're pretty drought-tolerant and can grow in sun, according to Prairie Moon Nursery (http://www.prairiemoon.com/plants/bare-root/wildflowers-forb...). They form colonies by underground rhizomes, so best to plant them in a place where they can spread.
