I don't remember planting these, so when they came up last year, I thought they were weeds and pulled them. I discovered that it was probably not a weed, because they have little bulbs. It must be summer blooming, because it is just emerging now at the end of May in WI.

Any ideas?

Could be totally wrong, but my gut feeling tells me it looks like an orchid, may be just may be Epipactis helleborine

I knew that looked familiar!

Thanks for your reply! So, I should be pulling them out? When I was mowing this morning, I noticed some in my lawn too. I love orchids, but not the invasive type!

Yes, they are invasive but, it you can contain them, keep a few.
