I have some new leaves/bulbs shooting up and I don't know what they are. I was hoping it was more Trillium, but they are much bigger than my other one. Any ideas are appreciated.

I was very excited today to find out two of my unidentified tall bushes are both Lilacs. One purple, and one White. I love their smell and love to bring some inside.




Possibly Lily of the Valley or Hosta.

On a second look, I go with the Hosta answer

Thank you Owdboggy, they are shooting up everwhere. Interesting how their leaves unfold.

Yes, definately Hostas! They are nice plants grown mostly for their big leaves, but many also have nice flowers in spikes of lilac or white. :-)
