Spider lily, Hymenocallis. If it is a wild variety it is either Hymenocallis liriosme or Hymenocallis occidentalis. I think would be more likely in your area. Flora of North American says that H. occidentalis has leaves that are distinctly wider beyond middle, tapering to petiolelike base. H. liriosme is liguliform to narrowly lanceolate.

Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

Looks like a Crinum Lily to me.

I agree, the pink one looks like buds of Crinum; maybe 'Ellen Bosanquet'?

I think the pink one is a crinum too. There's another photo of it where it seems pretty clearly one from the stems and foliage. Nobody knew what the white one was, though. I was thinking maybe some kind of spider lily, but I only have the red ones (lycoris radiata) so couldn't be sure. Thanks to all of you for the ID. I didn't take the picture--I'll tell my friends you liked it. Smiling
