Description
One of our best-known native plants, and always a favorite with children, Jack-In-The-Pulpit is quite common in rich woodland. The plants are often solitary, large, and quite striking in the spring woods. The elegant hood curves forward over the Jack, an upright spike inside, creating the preacher in the canopied pulpit design. These treasured plants grow from a bulb, and can do very well in partially shaded perennial borders, growing tall if fertilized, and adding an exotic touch amid otherwise more traditional flower displays. Both the unique bloom and then the bright red berries that follow add a bit of mystery and woodland lore to any garden, and if undisturbed, the plants return faithfully each spring.

                    The Jack in the Pulpit, Red and Pained Trillium arrived in great shape, and came up and did very well after we planted them in the nearby woods. I am expecting bloom maybe next year.

                    These are terrible, out of the 12 I purchased, only two came up and petered out after about 4 inches and one bloom.

                    Comments about Jack in the Pulpit:

                    I purchased these last year and the first ones did not make it; AM replaced them and they did okay as far as coming up, only one had a pulpit and to me that means I have hope. This is my first experience with growing them in pots in Florida.

                      The plants are not vigorous growers. Hopefully, after a few years, they will resemble the Jack-in-the-Pulpits out in the woods.
