Anyone recognize these plants? last year I figured they were planted, and they flower, but they're popping up all over in random places. are they weeds? posting pictures of one solid green and one yellow/green. both are popping up here and there. roots go deep.

when do they flower and what do the flowers look like? I agree, they definitely look like a garden plant, and I feel like I should be able to place them, but I'm coming up blank atm

Maybe Epipactis helleborine. The variegated leaves are a new one though.

toady lily! That's it! D'Oh!

I should know. They're one of my favorites, and I've got a ton outside my door.

I think I just didn't recognize it standing all lonesome like that. Mine have grown big patches now.

I Actually can't remember what they looked like last year flowering. They were not memorable. I feel like they were white or blue or green flowers.

possibly. I guess I have to wait until they flower to know for sure. Just curious why they're popping up in so many places. was worried they were invasive. This is my second summer in this garden so I don't know it well yet. Thank you!

I wonder if they are Helleborine. Very Similar to what is popping up in my yard. Someone here ID'd it for me
