Eastern Skunk Cabbage, Clumpfoot Cabbage, Foetid Pothos, Meadow Cabbage, Polecat Weed, Skunk Cabbage, or Swamp Cabbage
Whatever you call this plant, it's botanical name is always Symplocarpus foetidus and is a symbol of early spring. Here rising above the muddy ground you see the ball-like spathe inside the hooded spadix, which is approximately four inches high. The flowers are actually tiny and located on the spathe. The plant's leaves have not yet appeared.
Please note: Today's Flowers is the post below.
