Can anyone help identify this plant please? It's not a liriope. The flower stalk doesn't get any taller than shown. It's from a very old garden. Thank you.

That little treasure is Reineckia (pronounced wry-neck-ia) carnea. It's a single species genus, from China and Japan and multiplies by a creeping rhizome. It needs a shady situation and will burn if in full sun. The leaves look ghastly if this happens. Does clump up quite quickly if in the right situation.

Thanks so much for that useful information. I was going to plant it in shade. Dear little flowers on it.
