5 thoughts on “Name that plant

  1. I agree with the others that it’s an erythronium (AKA trout lily, fawn lily, glacier lily, dog tooth violet). It doen’t look like either of the species native to Michigan.

  2. One of the better sites for plant information is:


    Put in the scientific name or common name and then click on the specific genus and species. The name “erythronium ” gets you about a page of items. Note that some pages have maps that are clickable and you can get information on your particular area.

    Our fawn lilies in Oregon are quite similar to the one you show:

    Fawn Lily

    Good lock on a positive ID.
