Pictures do help immensely! But I might guess a blackberry lily (Belamcanda chinensis). It's not a native plant but I believe that it has escaped gardens in some locations. It is currently (at least in Western NY State) showing off its seeds - which is where it gets the blackberry lily name. The seeds are a blue/black color and the leaves are somewhat flag like. Look it up and see if that is what you have.
