Yosemite and Tioga Pass Area

Soap Plant (Chlorogalum pomeridianum) isn't one of those modest little flowers that you might accidentally trample without noticing. The blooms are often a couple inches in diameter, and the plants themselves can reach several feet high. The flowers don't open until around sunset. We found this one on Evergreen Road that goes back to Hwy 120 from Hetch Hetchy.
