naked ladies? spider lilies?

Whichever they are called - when can you transplant them? I thought when the tops were finished blooming I could dig them up, but they already have started growing leaves!

I have 3 or 4 places that they came up and bloomed this fall - I'd like to put them all in the same place.

I read that it is best to transplant in the spring. Do not cut off the leaves just let the leaves die back natural, this is what feeds the plant for next years flowers.

I too have always moved them in spring vs fall.

I moved mine this fall after they were done blooming and they grew just fine. I figured if the nurseries sell the bulbs in the fall, then why not plant them or move them in the fall? I thought I got all my bulbs moved, but I saw one more poking out of the mulch the other day that needs to be moved. I didn't plant them in a very good spot originally.

Thanks so much. I've gone around and marked the places where they are so I can find the bulbs in the Spring.
