Curious to know what this plant is. Have not seen any flowers on this yet. It popped up this year? Stumped.

Looking at this young plant I have two opinions to offer you. First it is a variegated Japanese sedge, possibly Carix morrowii'Ice Dance'. The other possibility is that it is a young narrow leaf variegated hosta. If any of your neighbors have either plant one could have seeded to your yard.
