Symplocarpus foetidusHear ye, hear ye! The Skunk Cabbage is up at the Native Flora Garden at Ye Brooklyn Wedding Venue! Symplocarpus foetidusSymplocarpus foetidus favors wetlands, as this plant demonstrates from mid-gurgle of the stream.Symplocarpus foetidusOf course, this earliest of spring plants was up already down south weeks ago, but Brooklyn is where I am, so I celebrate it’s emergence here. The colors! The freaky strategy of creating its own snow-melting warmth! The fleshy forms in the chill murky rot of old leaves!Symplocarpus foetidusThe wheels of nature go ’round and ’round.
