Back to Name that Plant
(Lycoris squamigera) Lycoris flowers have more separation at the petal base (less overlap), creating a more “spidery” or “sloppy unsymmetrical” or imperfect flower. Also, the Lycoris stamens extend beyond the corolla. https://www.google.com/search?q=Lycoris+squamigera+images&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb (Amaryllis belladonna) A. belladonna have more overlap as in three well formed inner and three well formed outer petals in other words “symmetrical” or perfect flower shape. Also the stamens are within the corolla. https://www.google.com/search?q=bella+donna+lilly+images&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb I will go with the Naked Lady. When I only had a couple of Naked Ladies I used to think that they were defective. Now that I have dozens I see that they all have this “defect” which is normal. And your picture shows it well.

Looks like the Surprise Lily, a relative of the Spider lily. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycoris_squamigera I saw one blooming yesterday so it’s the right time of year. Just the bloom stalk, no leaves.
