Is an oxblood lily the same thing as an amaryllis? I don't know what to call the plant growing in my yard.

They are both Hippeastrum - Amaryllis

It is in the Amaryllis family; more specifically it is Rhodophiala bifida, aka - Oxblood or School House Lily.

Oxbloods bloom in the later summer, early fall, also they are completely red. Try hippeastrum x johnsonii, St. Joseph's lily. Sorry can't link from a Kindle. Sad
