Need help identifying this flower!

I just joined just so I could get some help with this!

Recently (within the past 2 weeks), these flowers popped up in front of my house. They're absolutely beautiful and I love them. The problem is I'm moving this week, and I'd really like to have these at my new house. I want to find out now what it is in case I need to get clippings of it before I move.

Sorry... these are the best pictures I could get with my laptop. They are very vivid red.

There are no leaves on the stems. They also do not need much water... I have never ever watered them, and it hasn't rained here since they've bloomed. They get tons of sun, and the ones with no shade at all are doing best... though there are some growing under my tree too. I live in south Louisiana, if that helps.

I know what it is but I'm drawing a blank and can't remember it's name. This plant grows from a bulb, like tulips and lilies.

... ah here we go -- I KNEW it started with Lyco -- it's Lycoris, known as Red Spider Lily.

Yes, I think I will just buy some bulbs. :)
