What plant is this?


I dug this out of the lawn because it looked kind of neat. Hoping someone may know what’s it is. The plant is about 4.“ tall and the leaves started out kind of spade shaped, about 3/4” wide.

The leaves, which are also kind of heart or fan shaped, have multiple stems coming from one source. Each has a single leaf. Because I didn’t disturb the root ball I don’t know if the source is a bulb, a corm, or what.

As they mature the leaves round out to about an inch and a quarter across and set tiny white flower buds. They’re kind of unique and cute. I hope they don’t turn out to be my worst nightmare.
