That looks like a Star of Bethlehem from the genus Ornithogalum.

I just got done digging about a gazillion of the awful "Star of Bethlehem" out of my front garden bed. I cnanot get rid of it. Does anyone know if Round Up would work? I hate them. I dig them out evey year and no matter what I do I can't get rid of them!

Just cut off the leaves and let them stay in the garden. The leaves will add a small amount of nitrogen and after a while the bulbs will run out of stored food and die.
