I found a small group of these plants yesterday in my yard and don't recognize them. They are growing mostly in the shade of a hydrangea and various weeds at the southern edge of a massive yew. I couldn't find any flowers and shall keep an eye out for those. Any ideas who this is?

Blue Bead Lily? I'm about a million zones north of you but we have those growing in the same setting you mentioned.

Maybe? That would be cool, the berries are beautiful! That was the only thing I saw that looked remotely like it in my field guide, but then it's all black and white line drawings. The pictures I see of it on the internet look like the leaves are kind of thick, almost succulent. Does that jive with what you know of that plant? Cause this one, the leaves seem fairly thin and like they flop or bend easily.

Here are a few pics. I wouldn't call the leaves succulent, but they are somewhat thick. I'm not sure they are the same plant, now that I'm comparing your pictures to mine. Yours has too many leaves, I believe.

Thank you for checking and sharing those pictures, Michael! I think you're right, too many leaves and they're definitely not as thick as the Blue Bead Lily's. That is such a lovely plant though!
The mystery continues.
