My seed strain of "orange Hippeastrum" has begun to bloom.  The parent
plant was found in the woods near Sealy (Central Texas), planted out
from a grandmother's garden.  There are only two blooms per stalk,
leaves are small and rather low.  This is the plant that has a
cream-colored "mask" at the throat.  So far (several) seem true to seed,
altho I do have other strains at work in the garden.  More pics to
follow of  them.
Who could tell me what this is?
