Growing in north TX zone 8 (Dallas area). Growing in a clump, won't flower! Growth is similar to fall bulbs- emerges in spring, grows during summer, with the foliage dying back in fall/winter.
Thanks, everyone!

Could be a member of the Narcissus genus (Daffodils, Jonquils, etc.).

Maybe Clivia or Agapanthus

I don't think it is either of those two, Daisy. Neither have a bulb (both have a rhizome). Generally they are evergreen as well, although apparently there are deciduous Agapanthus.

"Won't flower" makes me think Lycoris. If they have grown into too much shade, too crowded, that could inhibit blooming. ...or also note that they are one of the plants called "naked ladies" because the blooms happen in the fall after the foliage of spring/summer has died back. L. squamigera has larger foliage with blunt tips like that, pink blooms. If you've seen "mystery flowers" in that spot when there were no leaves, that could be it, that species or one of the other species.

Not a clivia or agapanthus. From what I understand, this has never flowered- fall or spring.

Is it in a densely crowded clump?

It may need to be separated/split in order to bloom well.
