Fetid Adder's Tongue
“From the Greek, scolios, bent or crooked, and pous, foot, because of the long, crooked flower. The specific name refers to John M Bigelow, botanist on the Pacific Railroad Survey under Lieutenant A. W. Whipple. In 1854 he made collecting trips to Marin County. The plant has noticeable broad, brown-spotted leaves two to four inches long. The flowers are one-half inch across, greenish striped with purple, on long stems which twist with age and turn downward when seeds are maturing.”
