These plants look like weeds but were planted deliberately and I'd like to know what they are. Location is Tucson, AZ. Plants may not be native. Plants propagate by seed and seems somewhat aggressive. Not sure whether this is an annual or perennial. Flower is small, just under 3/4" across. Height of plant with blooms is perhaps 18".

Thanks.

Looks like Asphodelus, growing in Arizona, it might be Asphodelus fistulosus

Thank you. That certainly looks likely. It's behaving like an invasive too, which Asphodelus fistulosus is.
