What is This Plant? Trout Lily (Erythronium americium)

July 13, 2009

Pendulous yellow lily like flower with mottled leaves.I've been trying to identify this plant for over a year and I still haven't found it. It looks like a miniature tiger lily with green leaves mottled with purple-brown. It grows wild here in the Sault, but I'm not sure if it's a wildflower or some kind of hybrid that escaped captivity. Any ideas?

The common name is snake flower. I don't know the Latin name.

It is in the lily family. One entry above is right. It is sometimes called a trout lily. My mom always called the Adder's tongues and I only have seen the yellow ones. They come in white too. See:
