Jack In The Pulpit - Arisaema triphyllum

Arisaema triphyllum is known as Jack-in-the-pulpit or Zhaashaagomin/an. Jack-in-the-pulpit is a perennial wildflower native to Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. It reaches 1 foot tall and flowers from May to June with a green cup-like blossom accented by purple stripes, followed by red berries. The berries are sought by birds, but are toxic to mammals.

It prefers partial sun to full shade, medium to wet soil and will grow in muck, clay, loam or moist sandy loam. Jack in the Pulpit makes a great soft-landing plant under hardwoods or likes shade gardens with rich soil. This plant can act as an ephemeral and may die back after flowering. Leave the leaves from the trees above to hold moisture and protect the root, and it will be back in the spring.
