Jack is in bloom

Jack-in-the-Pulpit

Jack-in-the-Pulpit, May Day 2012

Our unpretentious Jack-in-the-Pulpit, or Arisaema triphyllum, in bloom on May Day, 2012. We transplanted this one a couple of years ago (with permission) from a farm in southern Roane County, West Virginia, to our backyard in Clarksburg. This is the first spring it has bloomed.

  1. We found a Jack-in-the Pulpit in our yard when we moved to our current house. Every spring we look for it eagerly and are relieved to see it when it finally appears.
