For Zones 6-8a!

Call these Naked Ladies, Surprise Lilies, Magic Lilies, or Resurrection Lilies. You will be shocked in late July when these large trumpet blooms open for you. My original stock came from an old turn-of-the-century home in a Northeast Louisiana. The home is currently being restored as we speak. I remember the day well because I "broke my back" digging in the spring heat. They invited me for dinner that evening, and we shared a lovely time, topped off with Blue Bell ice-cream. These bulbs have been blooming and propagating in this Louisiana town for 50 years - a solid testimony to their quality and durability.

The Naked Lady (Lycoris squamigera) is more known in upper parts of the South because of its suitability to zones 6-8a. The common name, Naked Lady, emerged because the bulb blooms in late summer without foliage, but waits to sprout foliage until spring along with daffodils. Most people are shocked and impressed with its trumpet shaped, lilac purple-pink blooms. The Naked Lady is quick to multiply, although in areas that are too warm, it is slow to bloom which is why we limited the planting zones to 6-8a.

Now is the time to plant the Lycoris, but remember that Lycoris sometimes will not bloom their first year while they are adapting to and maturing in their new environment. Enjoy!
