That photo is from this website, which includes a picture of the blooms, but no botanical name. Maybe the additional photos there will help. https://latzgardening.wordpres...
Very pretty!

I only know one person in Thailand so I sent an email to enquire if she knows the botanical name of this plant. I hope she can find the time to respond. Thumbs up

I am very happy to say that my friend in Thailand received my message and answered.

She tells me this plant has a common name of Peruvian Lily and it a good luck plant.
Botanical name: Eucrosia bicolor Ker Gawl. Amaryllidaceae

Catalog of Life:
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

http://book.baanlaesuan.com/pl...

This link is in the Thai language but there is an option to translate into English:
http://saimherbal.blogspot.com...

If you copy/paste this word (which I believe translates to "the great")...ว่านมหาลาภ...into a Google Image search, you will see many photos of the plant and flowers.

Another common name is Queen Lily

Hope this information helps. Thumbs up

Edited to add link to Catalog of Life page for this plant.

Nlb59,
After typing all that I totally forgot to say, yes please, I would like some of the bulbs. What can I send you in return? We can move over to the private Treemail to talk about it and to exchange addresses, okay?
