Western Skunk Cabbage, Lysichiton americanus
The Western Skunk Cabbage inhabits swamps and wet areas in the Pacific Northwest. It is very easily recognizable with its spike- shaped flowers that are produced in large yellow spathe, a structure that sheaths the flower cluster. The Western Skunk Cabbage is one of the first plants to bloom in the springtime. As its name suggests, it produces a rather stinky smell which attracts pollinators.
