I don't recall what this plant is called. Grass like plant (similar to liriope). It spreads by runners. It will send up one shoot with a pinkish flower.

Striped leaves.

Thank you in advance

Very nice, I think you have one of the Zephyranthes, perhaps Z. rosea or similar species. Rain Lily is the common name.

lol so the flower and the grass like plant are not connected...

I just moved the plants to this area, the flowers just started showing up.

I do recall putting some rain lilies in last year. Thought they all had died, never saw a bloom, there are no leaves associated with the flower, just a flower sticking up out of the ground. We have had a lot of rain.

Thanks

Oh, I think the grass-like blades are the foliage of the rain lily. I don't have this particular one, I grow Z. citrina, a smaller yellow one in pots, and the flower scapes are separate from the foliage.

The striped grass like plant survived our winter here, zone 6ish. We got down to -6 briefly. So I don't think the plant is associated with the flower. Maybe my rain lilies just want to flower and not grow leaves. It says they are zone 8

That's interesting, I assumed that you were warmer than I was down in MD, but yes, I read about them after your comment, and they do in fact throw flowers up from time to time without showing foliage.
