Not sure what you mean by "no leaves"... but it reminds me of a Crinum. The stalk grows out to the side of the leaves.
I have a photo of one in "my garden".
Does this look like yours?

Amaryllis belladonna (Belladonna Lily, Naked Lady)

It produces leaves in either late winter or early spring, the leaves die off as the weather warms up then in summer the stems pop up and the flowers appear. That's why it's called Naked Lady.

flower1lady2000: I have the same Pink Lily in my garden. In spring they grow their leaves and then by mid July they are dead and dried up. But now the flower shoots are appearing. We always called them Mystery Lilies, but I knew that wasn't their official name. But soon I will have over 20 Naked Ladies dancing around in my garden. Shocked Soon as they are blooming I'll post a picture. Wink

Thanks to all of you; I don't know where it came from I have never had one before, neither have I purchased one. I sure like it though. A nice surprise in the garden. Thanks again, flowerlady

Kay, this is the type flower my Surprise Lily has. I may not be calling it the right thing. I think it is also called a Resurrection Lily. Thank you, flowerlady

I've always heard of that red one being called a Spider Lily.
So many commons names.... it does get confusing!

That is why you should use Latin naaaaaaames!
LOL
It'd make my life so much easier!
Hehehe!
I love the Pink one, but I adore the Red one!
To me, RED wins over PINK.

Calinromania,
I looked up the info;
the botanical name Lycoris squamigera included the red and pink varieties.

I like surprise lily better.

Those red ones are Spider Lillies. They are pretty much a wildflower here. I have a yard full. There are also white ones that come up here in the river bottoms. They multiply like crazy. I have to thin mine every couple of years.

Mart; I only have one or two but I have had them probably 10 years and they have not multiplied. I must need to move them or something; apparently they do not like their present home.
