Mystery flower

I’m sure someone can identify this pretty flower that’s sprung up in the middle of a border. I’m delighted to have it but I would love to know what it is.

    It used to be called a kaffir lily but they changed it's name to something  more acceptable. Can't remember what😊
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Thankyou so much for the comments. Glad I know what it is now and how it will, hopefully, spread. All for free too. I’ve no idea how it came to be in the middle of my garden especially as I’ve just read it’s a rhizome so doubt it’s arrived by feathered friends.

    Hesperantha?

    I have green thumbs and no aphids on my roses.

  • They prefer moist soil, and can be mildly invasive if they find a happy spot.

     Mildly invasive ?  A mildly invasive army ?  I don't think you can really put those 2 words together  :D
    Nice plants tho :)

    normally still called schizostylis, or African Corn lilly (for obvious reasons) flower in winter, have never found them to be thuggish
