A friend has a nice patch of these growing in her yard and was kind enough to share some with me. Problem is that neither of us has a clue as to what they are! No blooms yet, but "umbral" foliage is pretty, and the roots have "nodules" like you find on asparagus ferns.
Anyone have a clue?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much for the identification!
