Jack in the Pulpit: Arisaema triphyllum, or Jack in the Pulpit, has a unique look that intrigues and appeals to your garden.

The North American species is an herbaceous perennial. It originated in the wet woodlands of the United States from New England, across the Great Lakes to the plains and south as far as Florida. Gardeners use it today in shade gardens in almost every USDA growing zone. 

When TN Nursery customers ask for something unique for a profoundly shaded area with heavy moisture, we recommend Jack in the Pulpit. It loves high-moisture soil with rich organic content, thriving with almost no assistance.

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.
