Welcome bass71!
I believe it is a Clivia.

I agree, it looks like Clivia


We have quite a few Clivia listings in the plant database with photos for comparison: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Clivia&button=

Buyer beware:
AliExpress is using that exact same photo to sell Freesia bulbs.

Wow, you're right @greene . D'you think if we clicked on that picture and ordered we'd get 10 clivias for $3.88 ? Rolling on the floor laughing

Considering clivia sell for $40 each that would be an amazing bargain!

Maybe the flower in question is Freesia?? It sure looked like Clivia to me but could it be Freesia?

Lin, I'm pretty sure it's a clivia just because of the way the flowers are held in a bunch. Freesia flowers are distributed along the stem, so more loosely arranged than that.

I agree Also what we can see of the leaf is a clue to Clivia.

Yep, I agree now that I look more closely at the photo and the leaves. Definitely Clivia! Green Grin!
