    If I group a couple together maybe it won't seem like so many... These are two different "flowers", I am not sure if they are just not open or if that is the way they are. The leaves on the drooping "bud?" were narrow and long. The out-of-focus leaves go with the "star-fruit" shaped "pod?". Any idea where to start?

    I believe these are both Fritillaria species.

    The one with the winged fruit is Fritillaria lanceolata. The other one, I'm not entirely certain. It is likely Fritillaria pudica, but the fruiting capsules should be erect. Perhaps they haven't matured enough yet.

    Fritillaria id...

    The capsules on some of the plants were erect but the pictures weren't as clear. I will have to make it back there again and get a picture when the plants are in bloom. Thanks for the help once again...
