Some type of grass/groundcover

Not sure what this small grass like plant is, its about 4-6" in height, about 8" in width, it has small 3/4" white flowers the petals are tipped with a lavender/purple color. At the moment there is only 1 flower but if you look close you can see several more that will be opening in the next day or 2. It was in the yard when I moved in, it kind of looks like Liriope but it hasn't spread in the 2 years I have been here and its not blooming at the right time or in the same fashion.

If you are using the Gardenweb upload facility...

When you click preview, the picture should be visible, but if you edit your comments again, the picture will be gone. When you click preview, the pic info does not stay in the browse box. Browse again, or click "back" to edit. If pic is on the screen when you click submit, it will show up in your post.

Yes, each time you click preview, you need to have loaded the picture again. If you click preview with the picture attached and then hit SUBMIT, you will be fine. But if you choose to preview any changes again, you need to reattach.
Each time you Preview, it overwrites-- including with or without the picture.

Ipheion uniflorum will need sun to flower. Is it possible that yours has become shaded by a growing tree?

If this is the case, you can easily move some of your bulbs to a more appropriate place.

That location is fairly shaded, I don't live there any more we moved last month. I just want to get some for the new yard.

In quantity from Van Engelen. Order in the fall.
Min. $50.00 purchase , but quantity = better flowering impact.
