Magic Lily in the Magic City

Apparently, this flower is known by at least four different name: Naked Lady, Hurricane Lily, Spider Lily, and Magic Lily. According to an acquaintance, this latter-most name for the lycoris radiata is a result of the following: "The leaves grow in the Spring and then die back. Later the flowers appear as if by magic." So we have the magic lily in the Magic City.
