Can anyone identify this plant? This plant was growing in my yard. I loved it so much I brought it in to grow inside. I'm not exactly sure how to care for it so I was hoping to find the name and propagate to I can have more for next year. Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, I did dig up all the roots. I killed all of them except this last one. I'm praying I can keep this one going. Thanks for identifying it for me!!!

Mocha they were not dead. They take a rest and then start to grow again. I leave them in the pot and do not water until I see them coming up again.

You probably saw little brown dead looking bulbs. They were resting.
