These flowers are the richest orange color, with delicate paler orange in the inner part of the petal. I just learned they’re also called Kaffir Lilies (what would we do without search engines?) They grow a little like orchids, but they are from the amaryllis family. I have 3 of these plants in my front garden thanks to Mom, who harvested the baby shoots off of hers and gave them to me. And while they usually bloom in the spring, its September, and mine are blooming now. Go figure.
