This is a Crinum jagus form.  This is a variable species from mostly central
and western Africa with many forms and a degree of confusion with in its
taxonomy.However it can be an excellent garden plant. It has naturalized in
a number of tropical areas around the world as well and forms of this have
been imported to the U.S. from Thailand as "native" Crinums. These types are
also mistakenly sold as Crinum moorei often as well which they are not.

They flowers in your photos are oddly shaped and seem slightly deformed
which I cannot explain unless they are passing or have been through rain.

Hope this is helpful
