    I am sure this is not an unusual flowering plant but I would like to know the name of it. Thanks

    Me too! A couple of years ago I repotted mine---it had developed new bulbs and I potted each in its own pot. Till now all 3 would get leaves, grow, and then go dormant. No flowers. But this year...while watering my other plants in their winter location (little room under the basement stairs) I noticed new growth on my amaryllises. (Amarylli?) OK, great! Put some water on them too. Just a few days later I looked again...yikes! BUDS!!! All 3 are now reposing themselves upon my dining-room table (along with 3 phalaenopsis in bloom)---#1 in full bloom, #2 in bud. Bright red. Hooray!---On my wall I have a framed photo of my daughter, then 2 or 3 years old, standing next to this very amaryllis...she just had her 24th birthday! With plants, as with most other things in life, patience is indeed a virtue.
