Found in wetlands and streamside it exudes a skunky odor when in full bloom. Interestingly, the plant can be found in England and Ireland, where oddly it was transplanted from the U.S. to the water gardens of England & Ireland.

    Pretty photo! Skunk Cabbage, huh? Wonder why that odd name. When I saw the title, I wondered why anybody would plant cabbages at a stream! I’m a real sucker… Chuckle…
