This native woodland plant comes in a variety of shades and colors. Another spring plant that hides its interesting flower under the leaves. You can see how it came by the common name "Jack in the Pulpit" I hope the sermons are inspiring for the wee folk. After this perennial plant is done blooming it has a cluster of bright red seeds. The lore is that the Indians would use the seeds in a meat stew, the flavor would not be able to be discerned over the meat, and then they would run from an attacking tribe who would eat the meat and be very ill and possible die. The Latin name is Arisaema triphyllum and it prefers moist woodlands.
