Skunk Cabbage

Western Skunk Cabbage in Warrenton, Oregon Western skunk cabbage is blooming. I encountered it in the ditches along the roadsides, and it can be found in many areas locally. I happened to see this patch in Warrenton on my way back from the beach on Sunday.

Western Skunk Cabbage in Warrenton, Oregon
I've seen plenty of skunk cabbage patches, but I don't remember seeing them in bloom before. I wonder if it's because this is an unusually good year for flowers, or if they have a short season, and I happned to catch them on a good day. The large yellow flowers, of course, caught my attention. When I approached to take the pictures, I realized that they are aptly named. I wonder if the smell, too, comes with the flowering season.

I've never seen them before. They are supposed to be all over the South. Then again, Ft. Lauderdale is really a suburb of the North.

This is the second post I've seen featuring skunk cabbages for the Northwest.

They look pretty good for being such a stinky plant.
