Its hard to tell from the photo. Can you describe the color: is it more red or coral,and the measurement across the face, tip to tip. How many blooms on the scapes.

I have the same. The only amaryllis planted in my yard are Apple Blossom given to me 20+ years ago from my now 90 year old Mother -In-Law. These came up on their own making me think they are immature Apple Blossom or have mutated somehow?

It might be Hippeastrum striatum which is a species not a hybrid. This has been around for a long time and is a common "pass along" amaryllis.
