Hello! I'm new here and I'm hoping someone can tell me what this plant is. We just bought this house a little over a year ago, before that it was vacant for many years. Once we cleaned up the debris and overgrowth in the yard we noticed all these wonderful things growing. This particular plant has us stumped. We've never seen anything like it before. Hoping someone out there knows!

It resembles Allium siculum. I don't know if there's anything closer.

Gorgeous plant, also known as Nectaroscordum. It looks great anywhere.
