Looks like Alstroemeria...common name Peruvian lily.
Comes in many different colours.

They make wonderful cut flowers and can last for 3 weeks or more.

I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily but not really a lily)

One tip though... When you 'cut' them for flower arrangements or after the flowers are spent (deadhead), pull the stem off the plant, don't cut the stem. Your plant will respond with more blooms.
