I have this growing wild in the yard here in Cincinnati Ohio. The leaves are like a hyacinth and it grown from a bulb. The flower closes at night time.

The second plant comes up looking like a hosta with bulbed hanging flowers.

I appreciate the help. I am trying to get everything in the yard labelled as to what it is and know when it blooms and such.

Thanks!!

Not sure about the first one, but the second is lily of the valley. They are usually in mass plantings in shady or semi-shade areas.

I think picture 1 and 2 are Fairy Lily

Zephyranthes candida

Take a look at this link and see if it matches your plant

Thank you Sam for the answer on the second.

Va-cat that does look like the plant. Thanks. It is growing wild all over my neighborhood. I don't mind but could not find it listed anywhere. Thanks.

Hold on! Pictures 3-5 are indeed Lily of the Valley but the first two are NOT of a Fairy Lily (aka Rain Lily, aka Autumn Rain Lily). Wrong plant even though it looks like a good fit. The one in the picture is blooming now but the Fairy Lily has a different bloom time (late summer/autumn depending on location). Fairy Lilies don't close in the afternoons. If you look closely the stamen are not arranged right for the Fairy Lily as well. I recognize the plant anyway since mine finished blooming a couple of weeks ago. The common name is Star of Bethlehem and it can be a big time spreader- as the OP noted it is growing all over the neighborhood. Star of Bethlehem's Latin name is Ornithogalum umbellatum. Star of Bethlehem will usually close up all it's flowers by 1 PM, some places say by noon but mine seemed to linger a bit.

The first plant with the white star shaped flower is 'Star of Bethlehem'. They are a little bulb that multiply nicely and bloom Easter-ishly.

The second plant has been correctly identified as Lilly of the Valley.

Darn, I thought the first one was crow poison.

I didn't want to start a new thread so I'll add on to this one.

Can someone tell me what this is ?

It reminds me of rhubarb, but the leaves are not as dark green nor are the stalks red. I don't know much about plants. This is growing wild in a thicket which seems to include poison ivy. The leaves are very large probably 10-12 inches in length. I don't think the photo conveys size very well.



Up close

Looks to be 'curly dock' or 'broadleaf dock'. Google it.

Common burdock. A very very nasty invasive weed and extremely hard to get rid of.
