Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema) is a native woodland plant that grows naturally on rich, moist forest floors, and is perfectly suited for your shade garden. Dappled shade and humus-rich soil provide perfect growing conditions, though it does poorly in heavy clay soils.

Its flower structure consists of the spadix (Jack) which is an erect flower spike, and the sheath-like spathe (pulpit) which opens to form a hood. The fleshy stalk and leaf lend an almost tropical aura to the plant. Most plants in a colony will vanish by mid-summer (become dormant), but the mature, hermaphroditic flowering plant will produce a cluster of red berries in mid to late summer which becomes visible as the spathe withers.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
