It looks like the leaves of a Spanish Bluebell, Connie, but looks a little big……
Kind Regards, Old Herbaceous.

I would say hyacinth, but not a fresh one, probably last year's bloom, they tend to throw up multiple shoots the following year.

I thought hyacinth too but was a bit confused by the multiple shoots. Put it back in or in a pot and wait and see!

Many Thanks for all your replies. I never grow Hyacinths so that has confused me more? Yep I think pot it & see.

I’ve been racking my brains as to what bulb would be as advanced as that, at this time of the year so, i’m wondering if it could be a Crown Imperial Fritillaria !
