Love my jack in the pulpit

This flower is so lovely with the rest of my wildflowers. Very pleased.

Jack in the Pulpit is an attractive plant prized for its colorful foliage; subtle and delicate purple-striped blue, green, or white "flowers" bloom in spring and summer, and bright red berries appear in fall to attract birds. It is a unique addition to a woodland or container garden.

Jack In The Pulpit Can Reach 3 Feet Tall

The tall structures people assume are the "flowers" are tall hooded stalks surrounded by three large, parted leaves. The flowers are almost invisible dots hidden inside the plant's spadix. The specimens may grow three feet high and 12 inches wide at maturity.

Jack In The Pulpit Is Very Hardy

Low-maintenance, jack in the pulpit plants do best in shady areas with acidic and moist soils. For the most part, this plant is bug- and disease-resistant. It is an excellent choice for a striking addition to adding height, visual interest, and color to your garden. In many woodland areas, this plant grows wild.

Jack in the Pulpit Has A Stunning Flower

As a young plant, its leaves resemble poison ivy. If we look at the flower in the spring and use our imaginations, the plant resembles a man in the preacher's pulpit giving a sermon. The sizable surrounding longleaf spathe grows to 8 cm long. It can be stripped or variously colored.
