This plant is on our new property in Chattanooga, TN. Can you tell me what it is? I don't think it's been cared for in several years.

Looks like a daylily clump to me. You can dig it up and divide it if you want. It will probably bounce back when you do that.

In that condition it could be any number of things. Are there big bulbs under there? If so, I'd say it's a Crinum that's been badly frosted.

I agree w/Geoff, looks like frost-damaged crinums. Mine get killed to the ground every winter and they always come back, so yours will be fine once danger of frost is past.

Thank you, friends. I looked up Crinum photos online and I'm not sure the foliage matches. It does appear to be some type of lily-, amaryllis-, or now crinum-related plant. I will dig them up, clear off the dead leaves, and see if I can get some better pictures of roots/bulbs and foliage for you.

Thank you so much!

Yes, I agree - frost-bitten Crinum lily foliage.

Oh yes on the frost-bitten. This spring we've had some hard freezes.
Thank you for your help.
