Weird and Wonderful Skunk Cabbage
Spring’s First Wildflower: The Engine that Can
With Judy Barr
Skunk cabbages are the earliest wildflowers in the spring. But the flowers don’t look like flowers, and the leaves don’t look like leaves…
* What do their flowers and leaves look like?
* How does this weird plant burrow thru snow?
* What is the rest of the life cycle of this amazing plant?
* Where can you find them in Wellesley?
Note: If you love purple and green, you will love this plant!!!! Video recorded at the Guernsey Sanctuary over the last couple of weeks.
