Dear Dalia, this is an Amaryllis lily... Family: *Amaryllidaceae*
originated in SOUTH AMERICA ...

(this name Amaryllis is also a misnomer..true Amaryllis is "naked
lady" lily from South Africa...no leaves when it flowers in the
wild) ..

....true name of your red lily is *Hippeastrum*

Easter lily by tradition is the white lily ** Lilium
longiflorum**... Family: Liliaceae originated in JAPAN...

Your red lily like flower flowered in April here in cal, (easter
time) but traditionally in northern climates... its forced as an
indoor flowering plant when outside is dark and drab in winter... its
not always an April bloomer...

hope this helps
