What kind of plant is this?

presidiogardenAugust 12, 2012

I adopted this plant a few months ago after it was neglected in a very shady spot and never bloomed. However, yesterday, it bloomed for the first time, and I am so elated at its beauty and its saying "Hello!" for the summer. Also, orange is my favorite color.

Anybody know the name of this exact type of plant?

I found out that it is more specifically a Hippeastrum. It is beautiful and reminds me of Hawaii!
