Info

I fell to my knees when I first saw this plant at Woodlanders Nursery in South Carolina and visitors to our garden have continued this tradition. Discovered by native plant guru Bob McCartney on one of his many jaunts through Florida, this selection of our native Jack-in-the-pulpit has shiny black foliage with a few green veins. For us, it emerges slightly later (mid-May) than most Arisaema triphyllum. The 1' tall clumps are adorned in late spring with "pulpits" that also have a stunning black spathe. We have also found Arisaema 'Black Jack' spreads slightly by underground stolons. To be able to finally share this with the public is truly a dream come true.

Who wouldn't love a black Jack-in-the-pulpit? Handsome leaves are green on the undersides and dark, dark, dark on top with striking green veins and stems -- attractive when backlit. Leaves emerge in spring in clumps to 1 ft tall, quickly presenting a "pulpit” flower with dark maroon stripes on the inner surface. Very nice! Prefers light shade and abundant summer water. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.
