Skunk Cabbage from Royce in Maryland

Posted on |

Plant is located in Western Maryland has a very strong thick root

Hi Royce,

sorry for the slow reply. This is the young growth and flower bud of skunk cabbage, Symplocarpus foetidus, a plant rather common in peaty swamps. It is related to Jack in the Pulpit, in the family Araceae.
