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.
