You have done nothing wrong. you have two entirely diff plants. the one you are showing is Hymenocallis aka Spider lily.

well if it is spider lilly it came from ammarylis.those same plants that I show give me a few red and white striped flowers a year.I never have owned a spider lilly. And if you can see the leaves its clearly ammarylis.I thought spider lilly at first but as I said I have never bought one. thank you for your help .Sheree

Tropsanddune I just googled a pic of the spider lilly and the first that came up was what I have.How could that happen they were amarylis when I planted and like I said I still get the few a year...Can they cross? I guess I never had the right pic of a Spider lilly in my head .Well the mystery is over except where did they come from.Thanks a lot for your help.Now I am going to send that site to my mother in law because she seen them when they where all amarylis.we where both puzzeled.Thanks again

Maybe the Hymenocallis seeds got trapped in the media of the original Hypeastrum/Amarylis and took a long time to germinate and grow. Their leaves look alike so you would never notice the invader until it bloomed (now).

You got a free bonus plant when you bought your Ammarylis. No biggy, it happens. PS I am SO jealous of your Koi!
