For those of you familiar with Skunk Cabbage, those strange looking purple and green blotched buds you see peeking out very early in the year are not the actual flower(s). Eventually those bracts open up and reveal a white oval called a spadix; on which the tiny flower stalks appear. The whole plant has sort of a weird, alien look about it, like it just popped out of an episode of Stargate SG-1.

Interesting views of this unusual plant.
