This just appeared in my daughter's yard (in northern Virginia, zone 7a); it was planted by the previous homeowner and we don't know what it is.
There is no foliage yet.
Does anyone recognize it?

Think its this:
Lycoris squamigera, Resurrection Lily
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

It is a member of the amaryllis family but it has many names because of its unique characteristics of sending up leaves first, dying down, and then sending up a flower stalk. A couple of names I am familiar with are "Naked Lady" and Resurrection Lily".

How long has it been there? Just since spring, or did it winter over?
