Lycoris squamigera  by rhoing

Lycoris squamigera

There are many common names for this member of the amaryllis family: “Magic lily,” “Resurrection lily,” “Surprise lily.” That’s why I used the scientific name above. My plant systematics expert-and-friend says this about the plant: “Yeah, this is a weird plant. The inflorescences come out at completely different times than the leaves.

Note. Why are there seemingly no other posts in all of 365 tagging this plant or flower?
