We have a limited supply of Naked Ladies available for purchse. These aren't dancing girls - they're flowers! These bulbs are some of the most interesting plants in our flower beds and we're so excited to have some to share with you this year.
Naked Ladies (also known as the Belladonna Lily, Jersey Lily or the Amaryllis Belladonna) are a fascinating bulb style plant that sends out lush green foliage in the fall or early winter. In summer the broad strappy leaves die off, and the bulbs go dormant. Then, suddenly, as the late summer or early fall rains arrive it looks like tentacles are rising from the soil, garden-kraken style. When the bulbous growth reaches its full height, gorgeous pink trumpet shaped flowers appear. There's no foliage at this point in the plant's life cycle - the flowers are truly naked!
Planting and care: - Naked ladies prefer to bask in full sun. - Plant bulbs until the tip is just showing at the soil line. (You can bury it 1-2" below the soil line if you'd like flowers to show up just a wee bit later.) - Drought tolerant, so water when you plant them to get roots started but otherwise feel free to ignore this plant. - Space 12" apart. These bulbs will self-divide so having some space will make for happier, healthier bulbs. (Plan on thinning the bed every 4 or 5 years.)
