Now Blooming: Jack in the Pulpit

Published by at 6:57 am under Plants


Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) has been blooming for about a week in the Pittsburgh area. 

The flower usually looks like this (click here) with three-part leaves and a long curving hood.

Dianne lifted Jack’s roof to show his beautifully decorated pulpit. 

Some flowers don’t have such bold stripes inside.  You’ll have to lift Jack’s lid to see.

    I think I was about 4 years old (eons ago) when my Grandmother showed me my first Jack in the Pulpit. I loved it then and still do now!

    This is one of my favorite wildflowers and it grows throughout the local park in Washington Pa. Nice photograph!
