Another suprise

Hi all, me again! Uncovered this giant mound of tubers as Ed the fence, was putting in a new picket fence and arch safely her traipsed over most of it but nature being what it is has sprung back to life and given these splendid striking flowers, so.... What is it? Can we split it and move as it will be in the veg areaimage

    A house almost opposite me have 100's in their front garden - a stunning sight

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Dig up when dormant. Notice that the bulbs have their shoulders out of the ground, That is how they should be replanted. South-facing well drained sunny position.

    They are actually related to Amaryllis rather than Lilies.
