This bunch of skunk cabbage are growing about 20 feet away from the green/maroon mottled skunk cabbages. These photos were taken a few minutes apart. Some are red, some are green but they are all still the same species. Underneath the earth, the root system is huge and makes it almost impossible to dig up the plants. Their root systems are different that most plants, there is no tap root and the roots grow long before they have fingers or splits. They have miniature versions of themselves buried inside and one emerges every year. Here is an interesting read if you want more info
Hi Jean a very nice and good photo LIKE. Greetings from Holland John.
Hi Jean, interesting plant. Some months ago you commented on a photo of mine of a dried seed pod (I won't blame you if you cannot remember). You asked what kind of plant it was and if I had a photo of the plant itself. I now have a series of shots, from the blossom to the seed pod, which I'll upload sometime. We regard it as a weed, but I have not been able to identify it. Cheers, Daan
John, thank you very much! Greetings to you in Holland.
Daan, Oh, WONDERFUL!!! I am looking forward to seeing you series of weed! Thank you for thinking of me on this subject. I really, really appreciate it!!
