Leaves brown and shriveled but many have tall stalks with buds that bloom at night. The blooms that have been pollinated have turned to seeds.
I was out about a quarter after eight tonight. Higher up on Skyline there are whole fields of these lilies that bloom. It's just beautiful. The long flowered stalks bob up and down not because of the breeze but because of the numerous bees taking turns to get pollen. What a sight!
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.
