These many stunningly beautiful lilies volunteered this week in the yard (in Tennessee, USA). Their stalks are bare and very vertical, like that of the Surprise Lily, but I've never seen this particular one.
Does anyone know its name or its characteristics?

TONIrobinson, YES! It is a Nerine Guernsey! I just found the lowdown on it! 😁

Could this be a Nerine? Sometimes called a Guernsey Lilly?

Mbuchner, I wish you luck! :-)

I have heard that they are very hardy and they are often seen by abandoned houses or even sites where the house is long gone. I dug some up from an empty lot and waiting to see if the bloom this year.

t53de711, thank you. That certainly fits the appearance! They are amazingly delicate and beautiful. Maybe we can transplant the bulbs into a proper location. They just grew up in the middle of the yard.

we used to call them spider lilies. supposedly they came from Australia. so they bloomed in the summer and later after the blooms were dead the leaves came up. my grandmother gave us a few bulbs. have never seen them sold anywhere since. this was back in the 70's
