Description

The jack in the pulpit, also known as American arbutus, is an exceptional plant mostly recognized for its unique flowers. Its flowers are many and brightly colored, with colors ranging from brown and green to yellow and white. The jack in the pulpit grows up to 89 cm tall, and it is one of the most common flowers found in North America.


It won't be your average plant. With stunning flowers that change color as the season's change, it's an eye-catching addition to your home or garden. You'll also find that this perennial is easy to care for, thriving in shady areas or sunny spots.
It is a beautiful plant that blooms earlier than most flowers, and it is perfect for gardeners looking for something to decorate the house with. It is the ideal plant for horticulturalists to use in a laboratory or greenhouse.
It is a heather variety of winter flowering plants that bloom in late November early December. These plants do well in moist, cool soil and need little to no care. Just plant them and forget them.


Jack in The Pulpit is a perennial herb that grows in open fields, meadows, and gardens, where it commonly grows as an escape from lawns.
You'll love the way this wildflower looks and feels in your hand.


It is an herbaceous perennial in the arum family, native to temperate zones worldwide. This plant likes moist soil and cool summers but needs plenty of light and air.
This plant likes to be grown in moist, well-drained soil and needs shade. It can be found in gardens, so it's an excellent plant to grow indoors during the winter. It has small leaves like tiny cups, and they surround a thick stem used as the plant's root. The leaves and stems come in different shades of green that can be gold or reddish.

Jack in the Pulpit Brings the Wild Woodlands to Your Garden 

For sheer drama, Jack in the Pulpit comes through every time. Even better, it’s one of those rare perennials for shaded, damp areas that actually adds some color to the landscape. And, given its height of up to 2 feet, this spreading perennial also brings the drama.  

Whether in the most naturalistic, wild settings or as a foundation planting, Jack in the Pulpit casts a fragile, fairy tale-like mood, with its wavy, hooded flowers presenting stripes of purple, green and/or white on tall stems. But this hardy perennial is anything but fragile.

When it peeps up from the soil in early spring, it provides welcome greenery. But the show really starts around May (depending on your climate). That’s when the “pulpit” -- the tall, decorative spike -- emerges from the leaves. Ultimately, it forms a hood around its spike of tiny flowers, or the “Jack.” 

As the weather cools, mature colonies of Jack in the Pulpit will produce “bouquets” of bright red berries. The berries tend to be appreciated by wild turkeys and other wildlife that might be strolling by. 

Technically the showiest part of Jack in the Pulpit is not its flower, but rather that plant part known as the spathe, which encloses the flowering spike, or spadix. But technicalities aside, the Jack in the Pulpit is a stunning plant, giving the impression of a hothouse orchid thriving in a woodland environment. 

Give Jack in the Pulpit the Damp Shade it Craves

Aside from its dramatic silhouette and striped, swirling “flowers,” gardeners prize Jack in the Pulpit because of its preference for boggy, shady situations. This is not the perennial to place in your average sunny garden bed. Instead, grow Jack in the Pulpit where it is reliably moist, at least during the spring and summer. It also requires part shade or deep shade.

 

 

These days, many homeowners are establishing rain gardens to take advantage of water from their drainpipes, or from that annoying “dip” in the lawn, rather than diverting all of it away. This is one area where Jack in the Pulpit can thrive, especially if it’s near a foundation or walkway on the shady part of the house, or near some shade-casting trees.

The perennial flower will also grow under plants that most other botanicals find toxic, such as the black walnut tree. In fact, Jack in the Pulpit plants tend to shrug off plant disease and insect pests.

This Perennial Needs Minimal Care

Not surprisingly, this wildflower doesn’t need much in the way of care. Space 6 inches apart in a damp part of your property where it won’t get much, if any, sun. If your soil is too alkaline, peat moss or wood chip mulch will add the acidity this woodland flower loves. Beyond that, leave Jack in the Pulpit as undisturbed as possible so that it can be at its showy best.
