Spider Lilies

Seen in the yards of older homes, this fall bloomer first sends up a slender stalk, followed by an airy bloom, and later, the greenery. A shovel full of bulbs from a neighbor long ago has given me plenty. Common names are Pink Ladies and the fun Naked Ladies, as the flower resembles a fancy ladies hat atop a bare stem. Ooh la la!
