I have tried to get this several times from seedex and other sources, but never get flowers anything like those shown on Google images. What should it really look like and how large can the flowers get?
  I have several various pink and brown/orange flowers out at present but what they really are I am not sure. The ease with which some Habranthus/Zephyranthes self seed doesn't help.

also the time that we can get plenty of rain in S. GA and FL 

We've been in drought conditions for a few years- last year I saw very
almost no blooms in the wild but this year we got some great rains in the
spring and the Zephyranthes atamasco were spectacular. It amazes me how
long they can wait for just the right conditions
