Crinum hybrid identification

A little over 2 years ago, I moved to Cary North Carolina and found  
this plant growing in my back yard, probably planted by the original  
owner.  There were no flowers at the time, but I was pretty sure it  
was an Amaryllis or something closely related.  I was getting  
landscaping done near the plant and I decided to dig it up and move it  
to a better location.  It ended up being a massive clump of large  
bulbs which took three people to move.  The year after I re-planted  
it, it flowered at least once that I recall, and it flowered for the  
first time this year yesterday (June 27).  The flower stalk is about  
30 inches high, and the leaves are probably just as long, if not  
longer (very floppy). There is only one flower stalk so far, I think  
there may have been more last year.

After doing some research, I now think it's a Crinum hybrid of some  
kind, but I am unable to identify it exactly.  Links to pictures are  
below.  If you need more pictures, or measurements, let me know.

Thanks for your time.
