Don't know. Just want to say that my crinums have wide strap-like leaves. Suppose their may be different kinds.

Hi & welcome!

Some kind of Lycoris maybe. They have foliage over winter and spring, then the foliage disappears for a month or so before the flowers appear, giving rise to one of the common names for this genus, "naked ladies." If that is what they are, and you get them back in the ground soon, you should get some blooms this fall.

Thank you! It's definitely a lycoris! I completely forgot seeing those flowers last fall. Putting them back in the ground now. Appreciate it!

They grow wild all over Texas and in Louisiana too. There's a guy whose name escapes me because his nickname is 'The Bulb Hunter'. He drives all over the South collecting bulbs from abandoned property and not so abandoned property (with permission of course). I heard him give a presentation after which he was selling his book.

Wonder what color flowers your bulbs will have.
