Skunk Cabbage

I was in the park this afternoon, trying for a few photos of birds and squirrels. As I was leaving, I spotted this  plant, which I think is Skunk Cabbage, Lysichton americanus. I rested my 500mm lens on my camera bag for these two shots:

What an unattractive name for such a good-looking plant!


  1. Colourful Lords and Ladies. It must be an escapee but it looks good.

  2. Lovely capture Jeremy! The yellow color is fascinating and nice knowing its name along.

    Happy Easter :)

  3. Maybe rather a fitting name given that this non native is considered by some to be invasive and a threat to our native wild plants. But you are right Jeremy, it is very attractive and you have captured it beautifully!

  4. Thanks for your comments. This has been planted in the park, and there is no sign of it escaping into the wild round here - so far!

  5. I'm not sure why but this website is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I'll
    check back later on and see if the problem still

    Here is my web-site ... useful site
