In winter this patch of 'garden' was mostly bare ground with maybe some twigs sticking up. Come early spring, it was all but overflowing with this green, leafy charmer. The pile above is about a yard long. Any guesses out there?

Maybe. Ours doesn't have those stems, though. Belay that, ours is that stemmy, on second review.

I'm by no means horticulturally qualified, but could it be pachysandra? (Yes, you do pronounce it like elephant + girl's name.)

That's some cool stuff, but I think the leaves are bigger.

I am almost certain those are hostas. I have a very similar variety in my garden.

My first thought hostas. It may get a purple flower later in the year.

I must also vote hostas They are over grown though and need to be divided.

Yep. When they get older, they'll uproot themselves, and start chasing the cat.

(Hosta, yep.)

If they start growing flowers that appear to be from mars, they're hostas.

I thought Hostas, but ours have cream colored lines on the leaves, so I'm not sure.
