Product Description

Jack in the Pulpit

(Arisaema triphyllum), also called Indian turnip, is a unique perennial that is native to North America. It has a tall stalk, called a spathe, which is shaped like a hood and curls forward. Tucked inside the hood is a small upright spike, reminiscent of a preacher inside a pulpit. The hood is a lovely blending of colors, including green, brown, cream and burgundy. In some plants, the colors are softly swirled together, while in others they have a striped appearance. During late summer or early fall, the spathe falls away and is replaced by a cluster of vibrant crimson berries.

 This plant grows from 1 to 2 feet tall and reaches a diameter of about 2 feet. It thrives in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 9. Jack in the pulpit prefers part to full shade and fertile, evenly moist soil. It is an ideal choice for parts of the landscape with poor drainage, where fussier plants cannot survive.

 Jack in the pulpit is an attractive addition to shade gardens and is beautiful when paired with more traditional plants, such as hostas and ferns.

It is also a good selection for woodland, bog or rain gardens, as these are very similar to this perennial's native habitat. They are such a unique plant that all who pass by will stop and look at this amazing plant.

This perennial grows from a corm. This wildflower is native to Tennessee and many other areas in the US. The Jack-In-The-Pulpit gets its name from the distinct shape of its bloom. This plant can be found growing wild in moist woodlands. This perennial needs partial to full shade. Growing anywhere between 6-30 inches in height. Parts of the plant attract wildlife for feeding, but this plant is toxic to humans. This plant ships bare root year round.

Jack in the Pulpit ships bare root.
