    How funny, I was born in Danville, Indiana! Guess mom taught me what she was raised calling them.

    I think if you were to buy these from a bulb catalog, you will find they are "Hardy Amaryllis". They have been in bloom here in VA for about 1 week. Beautiful lilies and make wonderful cut flowers for bouquets.

    My neighbor was telling me about a little boy who lived in the house I live in now. There are Surprise Lillys on the west side of the house. They called them "Naked Ladies" The little boy, about 5 years old, went to school and drew a picture. The teacher asked him about his picture and he told her they were "Naked Ladies" He got in trouble and was sent home. Duh..teacher, ask for more details.
    Anyway, I would never call them "Naked Ladies" around a child.

    OK ... it's not a true Lily, latin name is lycoris squamigera which is in the Amaryillis family.

    I have just a few plants which are just stating to come up - no blooms yet. Glad someone else refers to them as naked ladies...always get a strange look when I ask about them.

    I think you need to let the foliage die back naturally to get blooms. Mine were planted in terrible clay soil and bloomed like crazy.

    You did not hear wrong - this last pic shows it well --- they don't have leaves now, so it's like they're "naked" - only the flower. We have a few, but I've never bothered to smell them - I'll have to go see how they smell!

    We called them "Mystery Lilies" because it was always a mystery as to where they were planted in the lawn. I have heard them called "Bella Donna Lilies" but am not sure the other gal was talking about the same thing as I was. I had lost hope of mine blooming until the rains came as it had been so dry here in Kansas.

    You just brought back a lovely memory of a large drive around our home in Ca where the pink Naked Ladies grew in profusion. They are unforgetable.

    When we bought our house 30 years ago, there was 1 already here, I've been dividing it over the years, and just yesterday counted 18 different spots where they deciding to come up!
    We always called them 'Magic Lillies"

    They're called pop-up lilies in Middle Tennessee.

    This is the first summer I've actually seen blossoms. I planted them about 10 yrs ago but my grey pyr. kept laying on the spot after the leaves came out. Our pyr died a few years back...needless to say the flowers finally came up.

    Inquiring minds want to know: When do you divide or tranplant them? I have several bunches that never bloom because of lack of water where they are and I'd like to transplant them to a better spot. Thanks in advance. ~ Chris

    I marked where they were, and then in the fall I dug them up, after the flowers died. When you do, you'll see if it's time to divide them
