White Skunk Cabbage (Lysichiton camtschatcensis)

Bold white arum shaped flowers make this an excellent aquatic plant for attracting bees and other pollenating insects to your pond.  Large bright green leaves provide cover for emerging wildlife.  If the leaves become damaged they can give off an offensive odour - hence the name.
Caution: Skin and eye irritant, harmful if eaten.
