It's hard to say without a flower.

There has never been any flowers on the plant. We moved into the house a few months ago and they were just green, but because it is a blub, not sure if it is supposed to die

You're outside my geographical range of knowledge, but I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

Are you able to dig one up and take a pic of the bulb/tubers? It looks like Easter Lilly and Agapanthus and a few other things. Aggies don't usually die off unless they've been in really hot conditions.

Perhaps Amaryllis belladonna? Mine have died down just recently.
