Does anyone know what this plant is based on the flower? It was just a patch of long green leaves that dried up and died as summer approached. And then all of a sudden it shot out a few flower stalks about a week ago.

Wow, that’s beautiful. Desert/Ajo lily, maybe? PlantID

@greenroomgarden thank you! I looked them up and the flowers look identical but the foliage is different.

Yes!! That's it! I thought you were cracking a joke when you called the flowers naked ladies. But I googled it...and lo and behold. Also known as the resurrection lily which makes so much sense because the plant legit died and then boom! These amaryllis like flowers emerge. I appreciate it @Cyndi!
