This short elegant flower came up this Fall from a bulb my friend received from her neighbor. It reminds her a Naked Lady flower in the way it grows but is much shorter. The neighbor called it a Jerusalem Lily but neither of us can find any information on that plant.
I'm thinking it might be some sort of Autumn Crocus. Can anyone help us with an ID please? Thanks, Ann

Maybe a Rain Lily (Zephyranthes). They are related to Amaryllis.

It has six stamens: it is definitely a Colchicum sp.

There are several native to the Mid East.
