Does anyone know what kind of plant this is? It is about 4 feet high with a maroon color and pretty bloom :)

I thought it might be × Amarcrinum, but the flowers are different. then, for a brief moment, I thought we're talking about Agave tequilana, but again, I was wrong. My conclusion: it might actually be Crinum, as @alp pointed out.

Yes, it looks a bit like phormium, but the flowers suggest crinum.

This looks like Queen Emma's Swamp Lily (Crinum asiaticum 'Splendens', formerly Crinum procerum var. splendens) in the Amaryllis Family (Amaryllidaceae). The interior of the dark pink flower buds will be white with a pink mid rib.
