How tall is the bloom stalk? No foliage? If semi-tall and no leaves it is probably Lycoris squamigera (surprise lily, naked lady).

The much smaller Zephyr lily/Rain lily has smaller stalks and the foliage is quite thin strapped leaves. (Zephyranthes)

No leaves.
I bought these as Purple amaryllis bulbs. Love the blue tints in the edges of the petals.
Thanks for the ID.

BTW, How many types of Naked Ladies are there? I thought they are all pink no blue tinge at ends of petals.

Granite City, IL(Zone 6a)

Resurrection Lily. Sadly mine didn't bloom this year, sent out straps but no flowers.

Gahanna, OH(Zone 6b)

Agree with all on Lycoris squamigera (Naked Lady / Resurrection Lily / Surprise Lily). While mine were acquired together, some show more of the blue tinge than others.

GrammyJo, mine just popped us this week, so hopefully yours may bloom shortly.
