It's one of the dutch hybrid amaryllis (Hippeastrum). There are so many varieties that look similar it's hard to tell exactly which you have, could be "Clown" or "Fairy Tale" just to name a few. Amaryllis are perfectly hardy in your zone and quite possibly into zone 7 with a deep winter mulch. I will be experimenting with these to see just how hardy they are.
