Jack in the Pulpit

The Jack in the Pulpits are up and “blooming” in the woods. I love looking for them each season and it always seems like a game to me to find them. They are my current favorite wildflower. Here are a few pictures.

But what really excites me are the ones blooming in my garden. Several years ago I brought home a seed pod and scattered the seeds in an area where I thought they would thrive. I was ecstatic last year when they came up. But none of them made a jack. This year I have nine plants and one with a Jack. Yea!!

Here they are.

What a pretty flower! I always thought that they were orange for some reason, though...

I have just planted my first jack. I have seen them and I have lots of shade so I hope this one spreads and has more jacks next year. I also bought some triliums as well which I love together with the jacks.
