The flowers have 6 white petals. The back of the petals are green. The flowers close at dusk and open at dawn.
The plants start sprouting very early in the year and have the appearance of grass or perhaps an onion. However there are actual blades that curve in with a slightly white tone.
The flower stalk sprouts almost a month later and contains a cluster of flowers. It continues to grow up with more flowers sprouting later.
I have only seen the plan in some beds along my neighbors driveway. They have been popping up along the walkways of my yard and in several beds. This particular plant is growing underneath a hydrangea that is just now sprouting.
