Naked Lady Amarillis
Naked Lady Amarillis, Lycoris squamigera. Lycoris squamigera probably originated in Japan or China. It grows very well in California, forming large clumps of leaves early in the Spring and then going leafless with narry a trace until it blooms in mid-Summer with repeated sprays of gorgeous pink flowers. It is also know as the Surprise Lily, Magic Lily, and Resurrection Lily.
