Description

Jack in the Pulpit is a unique and striking stemless perennial

This attractive plant is prized for its colorful foliage; subtle and delicate purple striped blue, green or white "flowers" that bloom in spring and summer; and bright red berries that appear in fall and attract birds. Jack in the pulpit is a unique addition to a woodland garden or a container garden. The tall structures people assume are the jack in the pulpit "flowers" are tall hooded stalks surrounded by three large, parted leaves. The flowers are almost invisible dots hidden from view inside the plant's spadix. At maturity, jack in the pulpit specimens may grow to three feet high and 12 inches wide. A low-maintenance plant, jack in the pulpit plants do best in shady areas with acidic and moist soils. For the most part, this plant is a bug- and disease-resistant. For a striking addition to adding height, visual interest, and color to your garden, jack in the pulpit is an excellent choice. In many woodland areas, this plant grows wild.

Jack in the Pulpit resembles the man about to give a sermon

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