The Nishiki-buki Are Sprouting

One of our favorite signs of spring at Cornucopia at Oldfield is the sprouting of the Nishiki-buki in our wetlands area alongside of Oldfield Brook.  Each year these plants (officially known as Petasites Japonicus Giganteous) start from nothing but a small (size of handfist) plant with small flowers to six feet with very large leaves.  It is a wonder to see them grow so quickly over the next few weeks.

To see this wonder of nature, comes stay with us and enjoy the spring at Cornucopia at Oldfield.
