Plant Name Please

Does someone know what this is? It has long thin leaves, pretty strong, pretty ugly, looks hard to take out. Previous home owner had it and it seems overgrown.

I think it may be Dietes bicolor, peacock flower, butterfly iris; it is a frequently used low maintenance plant in California gardens.

Here is a link that might be useful: Dietes bicolor, peacock flower, butterfly iris

Does it flower? Looks like over grown liriope; popular landscape plant. Also resembles an ornamental grass.

Agree with Susan's ID. It doesn't resemble Lirope to me. At first glance, I thought it might be Ophiopogon, but not after looking at the Dietes.
