Hi Jackie...I am going to guess at Clivia (I know my outdoor plants but most of my indoors are unnamed or named and forgotten!!LOL)

Check out the Garden Gallery for the thread "My Clivia Bloomed"

I saw something like your flower in a book recently, it was called amaryllis belladonna.

She is a lovely plant! It is not a clivia; looks like an amaryllis type so I would bet the last poster was prettty close in her guess of belladonna. Very pretty! Flowers four times a year? I'm a real sucker for all those bulbuos plants; think maybe I need to get one of those!

This plant might be either a Hippeastrum sylosum or maybe H. x acramannii. It certainly is healthy and strong, and a real beaut.

Not a clivia. This is a clivia.

Thanks everyone. It is going to flower again, spotted a flower stalk this week. This time I'm going to try harder to pollinate it to get seeds. The last time it bloomed I got one seed pod that I broke open and dropped back into the pot. Hopefully I can get some seeds to share.

Betty that Clivia is beautiful. Does it seed?? LOL

No seeds but sends up many runners. Too bad you are so far away I could give you some.
