Many Distinct Skunk Cabbage – March 27, 2007

I’m fascinated by the many variations of Skunk cabbage.

Under the right conditions skunk cabbage can live to be over 200 years old!!! Here’s an interesting skunk cabbage article in NWF’s National Wildlife Magazine. It states in the article that these plants can raise their internal temperature 86 deg F. higher than the surrounding air!
