(JACK IN THE PULPIT) A good beginner’s Ariseama, ‘Jack’ is a perennial that sends up 30” stems in late spring/early summer and each is topped by a round umbrella leaf composed of twelve smaller leaflets with drooping thin tips…hooded spathe flowers of purple and white follow, the ‘hoody’ ends in another long drooping thin tip over the opening. Bizarro! At home in the woodland, especially nice in a group. Rich, moist, well drained soil, light shade. Red orange seed pods follow flowers.
