    First thought: ornamental onion...but that would give off an onion odor when the leaves are rubbed. Next thought: undisturbed ground, a bulb that does NOT like to be moved once planted is blood lily (heamanthus, sp?). Try that.

    People have those growing here where I live. I am not sure what they are, but if I see someone in their yard or working on the flower beds, I will pull over and ask. The neighbors around here love to chat about their plants + I get to meet new folks in my small town. lol.

    Cheers,

    I believe it is Lycoris radiata, the hurricane lily or one from that genus. I have one Lycoris squamigera (resurrection lily, or magic lily) They are in the amaryllis family.L. squamigera has it's leaves in the spring and then they die back. Late summer it sends up a spike without any leaves. Flower is pink and trumpet shaped.

    In the D.C. Area we have Lycoris squamigira -it is beautiful pink lilly/amarayllis looking- they are called "Naked Ladies" because flower on a long stalk with no leaves (the leaves come out in spring then die back) In the autumn when they bloom- I will point them out to people by saying "Look at those beautiful 'Naked Ladies'!".

    You Yankees have such sophisticated names for things--magic lily or resurrection lily. Down here in Arkansas we call them "Naked Ladies" too. --that's pronounced "nekked ladies"
