Lycoris radiata is a cultivated, perennial, bulbous herb that works well planted in flower gardens and lawns. It produces strap-shaped leaves after flowering that remain evergreen during the winter. The foliage dies back in summer and then in the fall, surprises you with these vibrant red flowers. Which gives it the common names of Naked Ladies, Hurricane Lily, Fall Equinox flower, and Surprise Lily. Whatever you call them they are a fantastic flower, native to Japan and China. Lycoris are often planted around rice fields to protect them against rodents. The bulb is thought to be poisonous to them. Come see our Naked Ladies where they can be found throughout the gardens, in bloom now! ... See MoreSee Less
