Jack-In-The-Pulpit

Jack-In-The-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum)


In bloom April 23 - June 6. This plant is very easy to remember. Its little flowers are on the surface of a single fleshy spike, or spadix, that is surrounded by a leafy green sheath which overtops the spadix. The spadix and sheath resemble the roofed pulpit sometimes found in European churches and cathedrals. On a separate stalk are three leaves.
