Looks like wild onion to me, it often pops up here and there in a few of my accounts. Usually those with gardens near by.

it has no smell. That is what i thought as well. i dont know of any gardens close by them. i know they have a decorative grass in that spot it died out.

it def. looks like a wild onion. If you crush the bulb in your hand you should smell some onion type scent

Ok so i broke it open it has no smell but has layers like an onion. They had a lot of it pop up in that area.

Could it have been a flower bulb?

the blade is too skinny to be a bulb. definitely onions
