Eastern Skunk Cabbage

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 3 March 2013 in Plant & Nature.

The first native flower (in our area) to emerge in late winter. They grow in wet areas. It will open a bit more to show the inside. I took this at our local county park.

Unique shapes - reminds me of a sci-fi alien pod ready to burst forth with the alien creature. Beautiful colors - that deep burgundy red against the pale greens.
