Very wet area
Looks like toad lily. Tough plant. Loves shade.
Looks more like a turban lily though that is more of a cultured flower than wildflower in this part of the world.
Knew I had seen this red turks cap lily somewhere. Here’s a pic.
Turks cap Lily is native, but I have never seen one in the wild. Btw, toad Lily flowers appear in rows of pairs along the stem.
Multiple lilies on one stem would be a Turk’s Cap. Only one or maybe two is a Carolina Lily. My Carolina Lily is not as red as this photo and is more of a brownish red. A rare find.
It looks like Lilium speciosum Rubrum..
