Spider lily

Lycoris

Perhaps the summer's most magical bulb, spider lily pops up seemingly overnight, with its colorful flowers sitting tall upon a single stem. The exotic look of the long petals and stamens accounts for the common name. It also bears the monikers hurricane lily (because of its bloom season) and naked ladies (because the flowers appear without leaves). With trumpet-shape blooms that resemble an amaryllis, spider lily forms a brilliant border in partially shaded places.
