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.
