Lysichiton americanus

Lysichiton americanus (Lysichiton americanus (Yellow skunk cabbage))

Twice the size it was last year, and it survived being drowned under a raging torrent! Can you spot the Himalayan Balsam seedlings appearing (again!)

That is quite lovely. I do feel for you having that HB stuff in the garden. We forget flooding can bring unwelcome parasites.

I hadn't even thought about that. Bloomin' nuisance, they are!

These are planted at the stream running through Harlow Carr, so they will be very happy near your little brook.

Yes, it is, Sbg. I'd like more but there isn't really room. Your Irises are still there - they clung on under the raging torrent. :-)) Tenacious, aren't they!
