Nakes Ladies, a South African native, are so named because of their growth habit. Specifically, leaves appear in early spring, looking much like wide daffodil foliage. The leaves die back several weeks later and the plant is not to be heard from until late summer. Then, a single leafless stalk springs up, topped by a cluster of fragrant, trumpet-shaped pink flowers. Planted in groups, Amaryllis belladona is spectacular when in bloom. Even better, care is so minimal that there's really nothing to be done. In fact, this beauty prefers not to be disturbed.
