The fine white line on the petals is usually an indicator for G communis ssp byzantinus. Give this link a look, Tiffany. If you click on the picture and go to the next pic,the photo looks very much like your plant.

TYVM! I can't find any conflict with G. communis, but I know that I don't know enough about other bulbs to know if there's another, potentially similar "fooler" out there, and as a hard'n'fast rule, I never call a new-to-me plant ID'd w/o asking others to confirm. New-to-me as in ID attempt. I've it for years and either the previous residents at my old house planted it and as time went by, someone gave up & grass took over, or spread by wind/critters. I found the bulbs during a drought a few yrs. ago. "What are those stiff, still-green leaves amid the dead grass," I wondered. Got the shovel out & discovered bulbs. The background info could help I guess. This gorgeous plant survived for at least a decade while being mowed regularly, that I know of, or an incredibly serendipitously-timed seedling from that spring, to have sprouted when there would be a drought, which precluded mowing, and hence, its' discovery.
