This plant sprang up when we moved into our house and I just love the beautiful flowers on it but I have no idea what it is. Does anyone know?
It is lovely. One of my favs. Called Crocosmia "Lucifer" for the bright red color.
Lucy Thomas is right that was the one I also thought of when I saw the photo.
Once you have these in your garden you will find that they flourish and multiply and eventuallyt you will end up with enough of them to give the corms/litle bulblets to all your friends.
I have a more orangey version of this and in th UK it also goes by the name of Montbretia.
Ha! I have that myself and totally forgot what it was. Thanks!

Going forward on that assumption, I did a Google images search for "red bulb flower" and found pics almost identical to yours in 2 places, both labelled as Crocosmia lucifer.
The 2 links that I found are pasted below - they both contain pics of other types of flowers as well, so you'll have to scroll down the page a bit to find the Crocosmia lucifer:
