This plant has beautifully spotted leaves with a purplish bulb that is above the ground. It is very hardy, tolerates crowding well and prefers light watering.
It produces a flower stalk that has groups of lavender colored flowers sometime in winter. Here in NE Pa., it is a house plant that stays outdoors in fair weather.

Is it a ledebouria?

I agree with Yardenman. Commonly called Silver Squill.Yours would benefit from some judicious trimming and pruning.

Thank you, Yardenman and WillC. I have neglected it this summer but it will be repotted along with the 7 others and brought inside.
It is wonderful to know it's name!
