I Have Naked Ladies In My Backyard!

September 14, 2010Katie

Mr. Wonderful and I moved into our house in September of 2005 and these flowers were popping up in the backyard.  I think they’re my favorite flowers.  I love their spidery look.

Someone told me they were “Naked Ladies”. And that’s what I’ve called them ever since.

If anyone knows the real name of these flowers, I would greatly appreciate you sharing.  That way my husband and I can stop telling people there are naked ladies in our yard.

Thank you.  I have Googled and cannot find them!  Leave a comment below if you know!

    Hi Katie! Your naked ladies are "Lycoris radiata." They are often also called Spider Lilly or Hurricane Lily. Yours are beautiful!

        First time I ever saw these was 4 or 5 years ago when I was in Brownsburg visiting mom and dad. The ones I've seen have a pale pink flower. I usually see them in random places - like they've come up on their own and not planted. We have them in the Memphis area too!

    My grandmother has a clump of these in her front yard right now. I just took some of the most lovely pictures of them and her the other day. :)
