It might be an Easter Lily.

Not an Lily (Lilium longiflorum) It looks more like a variety of Ardisia to me:
Coral Ardisia (Ardisia crenata)
Shoebutton Ardisia (Ardisia elliptica)

@cwhitt, Thanks ... I've grown both Easter Lilies and Ardisia ... so that's the only reason I recognized it as not being the Easter Lily. Green Grin! I'm not certain it's Ardisia and my eyes aren't the best but it sure looks like it to me. Hopefully others will pop in with confirmation or suggestions.
