Jack-in-the-Pulpit – Arisaema triphyllum

Jack-in-the-Pulpit is a favorite woodland wildflower for many people. The early to mid-summer blooms are green and purple striped hood shaped resembling a pulpit with a spath in the center that serves as the “jack”.

In fall, the flowers become bright red berries. As the plant fades in late fall, the berries are lowered toward the ground for passing animals such as turtles.
