These flowers were my Grandma's favorites. She always called them "Naked Ladies" because in the fall they bloom with no leaves at all and just these beautiful flowers. When she passed I made sure that I took some starts from her garden so I could enjoy these pretty flowers and remember Grandma

This is very pretty. I love these flowers. When they bloom they always catch me by surprise. I guess that is why my neighbors call them surprise lillies. I have also heard them called resurrection lillies, because they seem to come back to life after summer. I hadn't heard them called "Naked Ladies" before. That is a new one!!
