Common Name: Skunk Cabbage Family: Araceae (The Arum Family)
It's funny how we ignore our native skunk cabbage when the Brits make such stunning use of it in their gardens. A harbinger of spring in the wild moist places of BC these swamp lanterns lift their golden yellow spathes in early spring which are followed by large 'tropical' foliage. Moist soil, bog gardens or containers without drainage.
