It's a Licoris

Common name: Spider Lilly.

The stem went from this to this.... it's pretty and a welcome surprise.

They come in red, orange and the rare ecru. I was blessed to be given one from my sister...
Please, if you care to visit in a few day, I will post a pic when it opens.
Speaking of my sister, (they live in New Iberia, La) even after Gustav went threw not even a week ago...her yard has flowers everwheres! Isn't God good.

Your flower is called Nerine.

I believe that Nerine was a water nymph in greek legend.
