I found this flower today while I was working on my eagle project and, having never seen anything like it before, wanted to know what exactly it is. It was found in the forest in almost full shade. Although I didn’t get a picture of them, the stalks of the flower were growing from bulbs and they had NO leaves; it was just the long stalk and the red flower cluster up top.

    If this is the one I have there are leaves in clump near the ground in winter and early spring that disappear completely. Later in the summer, early autumn the flower stalk shoots from ground. I have heard lots of names but my favorite is the Surprise Lilly.

    Another name is the “hurricane Lilly”… it depends on whose grandma you listened to.

    I would have to go and get another picture. That basically is the entire plant though. That green stalk extends all the way into the ground; it had absolutely no leaves on it.
