It is a bulb that has finished blooming and I can see a seed pod forming on the bloom stem .

I can only guess hyacinth, because I don't grow them
I am sure someone will recognize it

I would be normal for the plant to die back this time of year , mark where it is so you don't plant on top of it
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Could be a hyacinth. Lots of bulbs look similar at the foliage stage, but hyacinth would be the most common, since it definitely isn't daffodil, tulip, or crocus. Amaryllis isn't hardy here, so it would be odd to see leaves outside in the spring unless someone just planted it for some reason.

It has darl dots near the base if you look closely...
I can think of 2 groups on the spot that have those:orchids and scilloids(lederbouria and the like)...

but, it's growing outdoors, untended, in Cincinnati. That should rule out scilloids and most orchids wouldn't it? I think people just aren't documenting the bases of their hyacinth leaves very meticulously Hilarious!

Actually, looking closer, there are some seed pods on the far right of the frame. Definitely a hyacinth.

If you look closely there are actually two seed pods one larger one smaller on the same stem.
That is what made me think hyacinth, had to be multiple flowers on one stem.

Just looked up seed pods for hyacinth (a match ) Thumbs up
