Here is a pic of Eastern Skunk Cabbage flowers, which we saw on Tammy's birding walk; Becky led the walk today, on April 16, 2011. This pic was taken at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary, Minneapolis, MN on 110416. For more info on Eastern Skunk Cabbage (ザゼンソウ), click here (ザゼンソウ: チェック日本語). この花は、発熱し、近くの雪を融かし、開花します。確か、花も葉っぱも悪臭をだすので、スカンクキャベツと呼ばれると思います。悪臭を放つ理由は、花に昆虫を引き寄せるためです。Skunk Cabbageは、ミズバショウと思っていました。Eastern Skunk Cabbageは、ザゼンソウのようです。Western Skunk Cabbageは、ミズバショウに似ていますね。
