Hi JS,

Well, I'm far from an expert, but they look like the foliage for gladiolas. If they don't bloom, perhaps the bulb got damaged.

They look like Gladioli to me too.

Can you check how deep they are planted? That could be why they haven't flowered. The bulb should be 4 inches below the soil level. Are they somewhere quite sheltered? In zone 7 they should be lifted and dry stored so you are lucky they survived the winter.
