They’re lovely... I thought they were lilies.
I had to go look it up. :D Wikipedia says

Plants of the genus Amaryllis are known as belladonna lily, Jersey lily, naked lady, amarillo, Easter lily in Southern Australia or, in South Africa, March lily due to its propensity to flower around March. This is one of numerous genera with the common name "lily" due to their flower shape and growth habit. However, they are only distantly related to the true lily, Lilium.​

I have these beauties :inlove: We call them Easter lilies. The fragrance is divine. Mine are coming up now, so lots of green strappy leaves. The bulbs are huge.
