Skunk Cabbage

DSC_0106

I found this skunk cabbage, which has gone to seed, at Bloedel Reserve on 4 August. For those unfamiliar with skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus), it does smell remarkably similar to skunk … but primarily when in bloom. The blooms are around in spring and while the flowers are very small on an upright spike … the bracts are large and bright yellow.
