Flower Identification

Hopefully, I'm posting this under the appropriate topic. My brother asked me to try to identify this flower. Don't have much experience gardening, so am hoping someone could identify it for me. Thanks!

Good Morning, these pretty flowers are called Naked Ladies or surprise lilies. They smell so good!

Thank you both for responding so quickly! :D

My brother is now living in my grandparents' home (they've passed away) and she planted these years ago. I'm sure they could look better, but he doesn't have much of a green thumb.

He'll be delighted to know so that he can better take care of them in the future.

Have a great day!

They don't need much 'care' as such. Certainly no fertiliser and not much water. They like a good summer baking and they'll flower in late summer autumn. The leaves appear later.

I am not sure if it's the same plant as suggested above with a different name, but I've grown a plant that looks like this called Lycoris squamigera, common name naked ladies. They put up leaves in the spring, the leaves die back, and in late July or early August they send up flowers. I like them a lot.
