Fetid Adder's Tongue

Fetid Adder's Tongue

This member of the lily tribe (Scoliopus bigelovii) certainly can't be accused of claiming to be better than other flowers. Also called Slink pod; after pollination, its stem lowers the seed pod to the ground, in hopes that a seed will germinate and plant a new flower for next year.
