Jack-in-the-Pulpit

Native Perennial Wildflower


Jack-in-the-Pulpit is a charming addition to woodland gardens, naturalized areas, rain gardens and native plant gardens. A native wildflower, Jack-in-the-Pulpit produces spikes with green to purple, and sometimes striped, flowers in late spring. The leaves grow in groups of three. The tropical-looking perennial gets its name from its flower shape. The spadix, or flower spike, is the "Jack," while the hood, or spathe, is the "pulpit." Growing 12-24" tall, Jack-in-the-Pulpit performs best when planted in fertile, medium to wet soil in full to partial shade. Once established, it's an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance perennial. No. 1 bareroot. Zones 4-9.
