The Unique Appearance of Jack in the Pulpit 

Jack in the Pulpit takes its name from two of its parts. The spadix or spike is the "Jack"; the leaves for a sheath around it--the "Pulpit." 

This woodland wildflower grows to a mature height of one to two feet. Although this plant is tolerant in cold areas, the unique plant has an almost tropical look. 

Jack-in-the-pulpit has one to two green or green-and-purple leaves originating near Jack's base. Each leaf divides into three similarly-sized leaflets. They fold over to create an umbrella-like shape.

At the top of the spike, the flowers emerge--abundant, petite, purple or red blossoms that show off their colors in the early to mid spring.
