Thank you, this is a Florida native and I never planted it, I thought it was an Amaryllis flower because the leaves look the same and it never bloomed for many years. Then one day it did, what a nice surprise.

I was gifted a bundle of these last month. Had no idea what the blooms would be & was happily surprised when they started blooming. They do indeed look like the fireworks that hang suspended.
