  1. Do they have an aroma? If so they may be an oriental lily, possibly a “boogie woogie” variety. A friend of mine has been raising lilies for years and he has 500 lilies blooming in his yard each summer…and that variety is one of favorites.

      1. I think they can stay dormant for a couple years in colder areas but perhaps an animal dug up and replanted, OR someone didn’t want to pitch out and planted in your garden as a mystery surprise. 🙂

  2. Nice surprise! Bulbs can sometimes remain dormant for years. I planted some Naked Ladies ( a type of amaryllis common along roadsides in Northern California) when we moved into our last house. They never came up. Seven years later, as I was having my morning coffee on the deck, I noticed something pink blooming in the far corner of the yard. My Naked Ladies! This is the only time they ever bloomed!

    1. That is amazing. My mom had dozens of bulbs shipped back from Amsterdam years ago, I did the same a few years later. They came up for a time and then……nothing! But I caught a pesky chipmunk more than once running with half a bulb in his mouth as he headed to the neighbors yard……maybe they’ll come back?
