what plant was she talking about?
I was walking in the woods the other day with an herbalist who pointed out some small yellow flowers (maybe 1" across) growing about 6" high, that she referred to as amaryllis. They didn't look anything like the garden amaryllis that I'm familiar with. She asked if I had any and when I told her that my amaryllis were a lot bigger she looked at me like I was crazy. I wasn't able to get close enough to these wild plants to see if they had the same form.
I've done a Google search on 'amaryllis' and haven't turned up anything that looked like them. Any idea what they might have been?
