    Not really sure what it is but....


    It does look like that but, I am not sure where or when this picture was taken. But if it was in Ohio I would venture a guess that it is not Crinum asiaticum. I think they are a minimum zone 8 or 9. It also doesn't appear that someone would have planted it in the middle of the lawn as a annual.

    Not a crocus either.

    uh, looks like CORN to me... I feed the squirels around here, at least I used to before corn turned into the price of gold... Anyway, they do a GREAT job of planting it in my lawn. Used to have those plants growing everywhere. Now I just find them in the fenceline and my neghibor's lawn. About a half dozen of them they actually let grow up and have ears on them now!

    that's what i think too. do they go away after a few mowings or do you have to spray them with something? if so, with what?
