Agavaceae Chlorogalum pomeridianum var. pomeridianum (Wavyleaf Soap Plant)
In a fire recovery area. Fire 2 years ago. 2 flowers were open, just starting to bloom.
I should have described this earlier; took these pictures because the whole stand of soaproot was smashed down and the aerial shoot for the flower was munched down by - I don't know what. What eats soaproot shoots?
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.
