   The foliage is reminiscent of Brunsivia josephine as its leaves aren't prostrate, as for the flowers I would assume it to be a hybrid like Jim suggested!
   Sadly it does look virused, if you paid for the bulb I would ask for a refund!

Thanks for the response.  This is not an Hippeastrum, they are dormant 
now, we are just going into winter.

I suspect Jim Lykos has the identification sorted.  It is too showy for 
an Amaryllis and the wrong leaves for a Brunsvigia, even the Brunsvigia 

I noticed the marbling of the leaves.

I have passed on the messages to the original giver of the bulb.

Thank you
