Ariseama triphyllum has green and maroon striped hooded spathes and is one of two North American species. The rest of the genus is from Asia and offers some marvelous plants for the woodland garden, some of which we'll have from seed in a couple of years. If you're an afficionado, ask about some very rare and choice cultivars that we should have arriving this spring.

No woodland garden is complete without Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum). A best-seller of the woodland, the pulpit-like flower yields bright red berries in late summer when most other woodland plants have already gone by. Highly adaptable, Jack in the Pulpit grows in almost any rich woodland soil, even in wet, swampy areas. Hardy to Zones 3 - 9.

Our native jack, hooded blossoms striped green or purple with a white spadix hidden inside followed by large clusters of conspicuous scarlet berries. They are being decimated in many areas by wild turkeys. These avian rototillers are starting to rival deer and bunnies in terms of garden damage.

Info

The widespread Arisaema triphyllum is one of our favorite US native wildflowers. This hardy Jack-in-the-pulpit emerges in very early spring with a solitary stalk of one to two leaves, each with three leaflets. On the top of the stalk is its namesake pitcher. As the common name indicates, the hooded pitcher-like spathe has an appendage (spadix) that resembles a preacher in the pulpit...I bet this one was named during one heck of a hangover! If pollination of the flower occurs, you will have a 12" tall stalk of bright red berries as the plant goes summer dormant. Moist soils are best, but Arisaema has amazing short-term drought tolerance. Arisaema triphyllum offsets, so you will soon have a nice colony.
