Lycoris Radiata is what I've been told. It was on my land when I bought the place and SURPRISED me this year with a display. (My weed whacker hadn't been nearly as active and so the Lily had a chance).

Here is the info the nice lady sent me on it:

Lycoris radiata var. radiata
Red Spider Lily

This bulb was first discovered by Herbert in about 1850 and is native to Japan and China. It was brought to the United States soon after the Civil War and rapidly spread westward by southern gardeners. Ours are the true heirloom form (triploid vigor) and not the newer (dipoid forms) recently imported from Japan. They are hysteranthous (flowering-before leaves appear) and the large red flowers appear on naked stems in September. They are one of the bulbs which actually likes water during their dormancy period and failure to provide it can result in failure to bloom. The showy display of the spider lily lasts for weeks, and once the flowers fade, the foliage lasts all winter. The hysteranthous (flowers prior to leaves appearing) blooms can be seen from great distances and are long lasting as cut flowers. They prefer partial shade and well-drained garden soil. They are fast-growing and quickly form large bulb clumps that can be separated and planted. Another southern garden gem we love to grow in our gardens. Recommended for growing in zones 7-9.

*** She also sent a photo of HER Lycoris Radiata and is looks kinda similar to mine but not quite.***

If you want to see a photo of MY plant you can go to this place where I post my photos of my plants:

(This shows ALL of my plants that I have photos of so please just scroll down until you see the Lycoris Radiata). I still haven't figure out how to access just my INDIVIDUAL photos that I've posted there.)

If you want some of these lilies please e-mail me. You don't have your preferences set up so that I know what your e-mail is... Thanks...
