Description

Lysichiton americanus (western skunk cabbage) emerging. It was interesting to see this plant flowering, as most of these plants flowered three to five weeks ago. Late bloomers are a necessary part of plant diversity, in case the early bloomers were lost, perhaps due to weather changes.
