Mystery Flower

I found this flower growing where we used to live. It would bloom once a year, during spring. Too bad we couldn’t take it with us, but at least the people who move in down there will have a nice surprise next year. I’m thinking its a type of lily. Anybody know what kind of flower this is?

    My gut says fritillaria, but I’m not sure the petals are exactly right…

      I’ve looked up the fritillaria, I’ve never seen one like that before. The bud growing downward like bells is kind of cool. On Facebook someone said its a spider lily. Isn’t that a cool name? Thanks for stopping by!

        I’m woefully inadequate on southern flora, except for the few that make their way here as bulbs that get lifted and stored in winter, or as house plants. I’ve seen a spider lily variant in coastal catalogues (milder climates) that’s white, but I can’t even think of growing ’em here. They are very cool, though.

    I used to love looking those magazines and dream about some courtyard garden I would have one day….some day. 🙂
