I went to the 2nd website noted and found the pictured Jacobean lily. 
 As I thought I had remembered (and questioned on an early message 
here on the list a couple days back) this is the common name for 
Sprekelia.   I was given a few bulbs by another member of our club a 
couple years ago, and they have done marevlously in the garden.  I 
just have to remember to dig them before they freeze.  Farther south 
you wouldn't need to do that, I suppose, though they are very tender. 
A beautiful, very exotic-looking flower, great cut flower, too.  Easy 
to grow.
