Jack in the Pulpit Description

Something very different for your shade garden!
Jack-in-the-Pulpit is a distinctive flowering plant native to wooded areas of eastern North America. Its unique bloom consists of a green and reddish-brown, hooded stalk called a spathe that encloses a spadix--a small, upright spike--of microscopic green to purple florets. The overall effect is that of a preacher sermonizing from a pulpit! In fall, the spathe falls away to reveal a tight cluster of bright red berries that birds feed on. Enjoy this easy-care perennial year after year in a shade garden or stand of trees.Ariseama triphyllum
