Some folks call these Surprise Lilies
and some people call them Naked Ladies.
Actually they are lycoris squamigera.
These pale pink lilies peek out of nowhere every August just around my birthday.
It is nicknamed Naked Lady or Surprise Lily because the flowers appear on sturdy, leafless stems in late summer, after the leaves have withered and disappeared from the spring.These bulbs came from my grandmothers garden many years ago. I've moved them to every house I've lived in.
Every year they produce even more bulbs giving me huge groups of flowers.
