Mystery bloom coming

Only the stem has come up, with these buds, that should open to scarlet flowers. A half to one third the size in most ways to Lycoris squamigera, (sp?).
The buds are about 2 or 3 inches long.

I believe it is
Lycoris radiata (Red Spider Surprise Lily).

RE: Mystery bloom coming

Right you are and thank you. It bloomed today and I wish I have more, but I will wait a year, to see if this one comes back, because I don't think their cheap to buy. Supposedly hardy in my zone, but there are many reasons it might not come back.
