They look great from a distance, but get closer and you see it is surrounded by muck and smells like a skunk when you get close…thus the name of skunk cabbage

    I have to plead ignorance....do you eat skunk cabbage? Afraid the smell would put me right off!

    Suzanne, people don't eat it, but bears right out of hibernation will quite readily devour the weed. It is actually a pretty plant, the blooms in yellow are about 12 inches tall. They are only found in swampy areas and spread readily and next to impossible to kill off, thank goodness they reside only in watery areas, I'd sure hate to have them in the lawn and have to mow them! ;-)

    Fred, Thanks for the comment ... I agree with you. ;-)

    This is an interesting group of plants too (ariods - Family Araceae). I have one that smells like my neighbor's trash cans. :-( Cool flower though. From the resident plant nerd. :-) R

    Thanks Ron. I can personally, and without any equivocation, flatly state they smell like skunks.

    How can I make such a statement?

    Simple. By comparing what my woodshed smells like after trapping a skunk in there when trying to trap a rat, and the aroma wafting from the patch of skunk cabbage. Smells the same out here now, no matter what direction the wind is from.
