  Re: [Aroid-l] Symplocarpus foetidus

Hi Peter,

Well, the U.S. variant grows wild all over the woods behind my house by the
spring-fed streams, but they are all in active growth now of course as this
is a very early plant. If you would like to trade for something this fal I
could dig one up for you. Of course, you can buy these from either Janis
Ruksans in Latvia or Leonid Bondarenko in Lithuania as they have them
available....the influorescence on the ones from these European sources is
quite different looking than the ones in my back yard, but I believe that S.
foetidus is the only species here in the U.S. I have never personally
detected any smell from this "Skunk cabbage", but perhaps I sniff to late

If you would like one you can e-mail me personally at:

Best of luck getting one,
