Found these growing today and I don't remember planting anything.
the leaves look like oversized crocus, green with a white stripe. they are about 12 inches long and 5/8" wide.

I've not excavated to see what the root stock type is.

Looks like that grass that spreads like mad but sorry can't remember the name. Pretty though.

Its not a grass but I know the one you mean. perhaps I will have to lift it and have a look.
I like Hemerocallis and I wonder if its one of them but it doesn't look like the typical foliage thought.

Yesterday I spotted something yellow growing in one of the borders, which I knew I had not planted, it was growing next to a daylily which I know I never planted either.Think the Millymole is pushing things around the garden, in fact I am certain that is what is happening. The yellow is Crocosmia George Davidson and it is in a border about 4 metres away from where the Mole has pushed it to. lol. I like her way of planting, think it is just how I am so she can keep on going. It saves me planting up the borders. lol. We have got moles all over in the field and the borders but fingers crossed (I know I shouldn't say it) they are not as yet in or pushing up in the grass pathways, they seem to just come up in the borders. Can be a nightmare though when you step onto the border and get a sinking feeling. I have nearly been upended on several occasions. lol. take my long handled fork with me now for support. lol. Sbg it does look a bit like a daylily but not certain. Haven't seen one with a stripey leaf before, maybe Simbad could help, she is sure to know if there is one with a stripe. :O)

Hi Sbg, if I remember rightly, I think there are at least 2 species of Hemmerocallis that have striped foliage, but can't think of the names at the moment, must be a senior moment :-) Derek.

I have Golden zebra and that is very variegated almost yellow & green. this just has a single white stripe like a crocus.

Had to call it something Sbg - think I heard the name once but it was a long time ago. Time will tell anyway.
It will be nice if it does turn out to be a day lily.

It reminds me of spring / or summer Snowflake.

I do have summer snowflakes but not in this border as this border is a yellow-red border. I wonder if it is a self sown job that is now getting to a noticeable size?
