Description

Soaproot growing in the maritime chaparral, just off the fire road, roughly across from the cell phone station. This is a great place to see a variety of small plants - lots of soap root, star lily, etc.

Description from Wikipedia

Chlorogalum pomeridianum, the wavy-leafed soap plant, California soaproot, or Amole, is the most common and most widely distributed of the soap plants, soaproots or amoles, which make up the genus Chlorogalum of flowering plants. It is occasionally known as the "wild potato", but given the plant's lack of either resemblance or relationship to the potato, this name is not recommended.
