As the new member Marilyn will find out, you learn something new quite often
on this list.
I had not realised, or maybe just forgotten, that Symplocarpus was also
called skunk cabbage. I am used to the yellow…
bc_purpose=Basic&WBCMODE=PresentationUnpublished and white forms of
Lysichiton, which also grows at Saville garden not far from my home. I
always think it looks more like a giant cos lettuce.
