When I posted this earlier, I didn't see the picture is from High Country Gardens.  Here is what they say:

Nerine Lilies, also known as Guernsey Lilies, are easy to grow. These exotic looking, red-blooming flowers, sometimes known as Red Spider Lilies, are held aloft on tall stems with minimal foliage support. Plant in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Plant as soon as possible, as this plant requires a long growing season before flowers emerge in late summer to early fall. Hardy in zones 8-10; plant as an annual in colder zones. May be started indoors in early spring and transplanted outdoors once threat of frost has passed. A South African native bulb, Red Nerine Lilies bloom in late summer with large clusters of red, lily-like flowers. Plant in full sun and water regularly, but dont over water. In zones 3-7, lift bulbs before frost and store in a cool dry place for planting the following spring.

Thank you for sharing the Red Spider Lily.  They are so pretty that I want to buy some for my garden.

This person on ebay has both Arkansas Surprise Lillies; the Red Spider Lily and the Pink Naked Lady Lily; and they are from Arkansas.

you dont have to store them either...well at least in arkansas...they do just fine...propagating and thriving under any hardwood...from personal experience in southwest arkansas and river valley...
