This is one of my favorites - Skunk Cabbage. It grows in damp, lightly shaded places and comes up in the early spring. We also have a yellow flowered form. One is american (I think it's the white one, but I'm not 100 percent sure of that) and the other is asian.
I'll post as I find time. I did take a day off yesterday, even though I really didn't have time to do that with everything that needs to get done, but it was my birthday and I needed a 'girls day out' to have some fun and eat cheesecake.
