Identifying plants - Second

Postby HalM » Aug 27, 2014 8:51 pm


Attached is a second plant that I am trying to identify.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This one has sprouted up on several different areas on the property. I was wondering if it was an ornamental grass.

Maybe a lily? Are you just seeing them for the first time (are you new to this home), or have you seen them in past years? Just wondered if they were trying to grow back and just didn't get flowers this year.

We've been at this home for several years now. These few popped up in my vegetable garden this year. I decided to let them grow to see what happened. There are others that have come up over the years around the property but I've never seen any flowers on them.

I have patches of something similar looking that I call that my Clump Grass. In a garden I'm establishing, I leave it there 'til I need the space. It doesn't seem to spread by runners so it's fairly easy to week. If you see it coming up in seed stalks you might want to harvest them so the seed doesn't spread. Or it might be something else. lol

I think these are Clump Grass not any ornamental grass. You may uproot those if you need some extra space for your garden.
