Gardens American Skunk Cabbage
HAVE never seen American Skunk Cabbage for sale in NZ and yet it
was popular in the UK. Is it available anywhere?
plant has only recently become available at Jansens and we only
have limited numbers. Lysichiton americana is one of the
most popular pond plants in the world. Its large yellow spathes
appear early in spring when not too much is happening in the pond.
We should have better
stocks soon as our grower is going flat out to bulk up this species.
